Hearing in Escanaba Mi that bad news of the Hall fire. Glad to hear it wasn't used for potatoes but flooded Jif and I with memories. John... dropping off a 50 lb bag of potatoes and saying.... "Only time I'll do this.. go to the warehouse whenever.. and then leaving with that little limp/thump. Being on fire dept/emt thinking of those guys. praying for all the halls in general and those I haven't seen. You all have such a piece of my heart and Jif's heart that you probably can't understand.
Love Edinburg and her citizens.

Thank you to the beautiful town of Edinburg! My father Alfred Flaten was placed next to my Mom in the Trinity cemetery this past weekend. Such wonderful people to work with to make this happen. The Mielke's were so wonderful to have a coffee reception following our service...Rita, those caramel bars were AMAZING!!! Driving away was bitter sweet as the family had such amazing memories. Thank you to everyone that took care of us as only a town like this can do!

Thank you for this site!
I live in Seattle and read about Vernon Gestson's service in the Seattle Times and represented Edinburg and the Wallum family at his service.
Wanted to let you know that Vernon Gestson passed away Friday, feb 10. He was 93. He was my uncle and was the oldest of the six children. Just Dolly left of the family, so sad to lose another family member.
I received word last week that Alfred Flaten had passed.
He had been retired and living in Florida for many years.
A good friend from Fairdale, Marlys (Chally) Sorbo, had stayed in touch with Al's kids and relayed the information to me - - -
Al had been dealing with medical issues for several years, apparently.
Best to all,
Happy New Year to all friends and family in or from Edinburg! Always enjoy this site. Thanks Rita! I now live in the Vancouver, Washington area. Enjoyed my last visit to Walsh County about a year ago and really enjoyed it.
I was browsing Google maps and spotted Edinburg in ND. It's great to see other places named after my hometown

Gib (Gilbert) Jensen called me last Sunday to let me know that our good friend Dan Hayes had passed away. I, subsequently, checked 'The Crowsnest' and you also mentioned his passing. That may have been where Gib heard about Dan. It was good to hear that Bonnie was in a good place and being taken care of.
Please keep us posted as to any plans for a memorial service - I am not sure if I will be able to come, but would appreciate knowing any details.
I have sooo many good memories of growing up in Edinburg and the people that helped our family during difficult times.
My very best to all,
PS: regarding the grocery store - who do we make a check payable to?
