We have many senior citizens in Anamoose, but David Gienger is our oldest. David will be 90 on May 26th, but definitely doesn’t portray a man of that age. He has lived in the Anamoose area all his life. He was born 10 miles north of Anamoose. In the 40’s he moved 4 miles east of Anamoose. He moved into town when he and his brother Chris quit farming . Since then he has been working for other farmers. At present he still works for the Bartz farm. Guess he doesn’t know that the retirement age is 65.
In 1939-40 David worked in a CCC camp at Foxholm, ND. and learned woodworking. Since then he has been making wood items such as shelves, picture frames, little nic-nacs, storage units, and tables. Pictured are a kleenex holder, curling iron, and bathroom mirror.
For 54 years David was score keeper at the Anamoose basketball games. He and his wife Deloris live just a block from the school. He was also Sec/Treas for the Anamoose Fire Dept. for 15 years.
