Unit Founding Member passes away

We are sorry to report that one of the Peace Garden Unit’s founding members has passed away after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s. Some of you may not remember him, but Robert Detlaff was a walking source of knowledge and skill.  He was a talented woodworker, hard-working farmer and an avid birder – from him I learned how to spot a tiny finch in flight just by their scalloped dance across the sky.  He and his wife Shirley were so welcoming and gracious to us at our very first unit rally.  Robert was a past unit president and served as the presiding officer at the 2007 Fall Installation Rally.  His Airstream was a masterpiece of woodwork – at first glance you could tell he took great pride in his trailer – his love affair with camping spanned decades and his family was often helping with and sharing in the festivities.

Robert was 89 years young and passed away in a Minot healthcare facility. Funeral Service are 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Minot. Visitation: Friday, April 7, 2017 from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. in Thomas Family Funeral Home, Minot. In lieu of flowers and plants please consider sending a memorial donation to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, ND Alzheimer’s Association or to an organization of your choice.  To read his complete obituary, go to:  http://www.thomasfamilyfuneralhome.com/obituaries

Winter has arrived

The east half of the state was reintroduced to Old Man Winter just before Thanksgiving, and now it’s the western half of the state’s turn.  While there are blades of grass peaking though, more is covered with snow drifts butt-deep.  For those of you with such challenges, remember there is no place the you REALLY have to be today, right? Also, take it easy with the snow shovel – better yet – pay someone else to do it. Money well spent.  Will the snow last?  Will we get more? The almanac suggests a white winter – hopefully it is wrong about the below normal temperatures.  Wherever this season finds you, stay safe and warm and best wishes for a joyous holiday season!
