Carrington, ND Ag Business Tour - 2013

The Carrington Ag Business Tour took place on Tuesday, July 30, visiting four ag-oriented establishments in our area: Andy Deterding Ag Aviation; NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center; Richard Zink's Wholesale Ag Products; and the Van Bedaf Dairy.

The four ag businesses on this tour are excellent examples of ag-oriented endeavors at their best. These business owners and the staff at NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center need to be commended for the extreme effort they put into their work... and for the economic opportunities/prestige they bring to our community.

Special thanks goes to Steve Metzger for hosting the tour and to Farm Credit Services, North Dakota Farmers Union, Arrowwood Prairie Co-op and the Carrington Convention & Visitors Bureau for making this tour possible.

Wednesday Night Wheels - Show 'N Shine

It's always a pleasure to see such COOL cars and trucks as the ones that were on display at Carrington's Wednesday Night Wheels!  You have to admire the endeavor that it takes to keep these older beauties in such good condition.

I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who spent some time at the Show 'N Shine... displaying their cars, visiting with those of us who love to see them, telling stories about these vehicles (and other favorites)...  Almost everyone there had a favorite car with a good story to tell about it!

In case you haven't heard yet, the original Batmobile is coming to Carrington on August 2nd from 2-7 p.m... along with a classic/cool car show.  There will also be a RibFest featuring ribs from Famous Dave's and The Buffalo Barbeque Grill!  Then, from 7 pm. till midnight, you can dance to the tunes of Johnny Green & the Greenmen.

Hope to see you there!
