The Saturday Farmers Market will meet every Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the City Auditorium (320 Central Ave. South, Valley City) until Oct. 27.
Following a nearly three-month liquidation sale and a week-long closure for remodeling and expansion, the former Pamida store in Valley City celebrated its conversion to a Shopko Hometown store Thursday with an official ribbon cutting. Shopko employees joined city officials, Valley City Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors and enthusiastic shoppers for the ceremony at 8:45 a.m.
The first 100 shoppers to arrive were given $10 gift cards to use on merchandise in the store. Shoppers could also register for a drawing for prizes including the grand prize of a 32 inch LCD HDTV.
Some days I get so rattled and frazzled and hurried. I get that way so much that I have to check the dryer twice to make sure the cat didnâ€™t crawl in before I push the â€śstartâ€ť button. It seems I always remember I forgot to put the clothes from the washer into the dryer the night before the morning I need what is in the washer. The problem is that the clothes have been in the washer, already washed for two or three days and so I have to re-wash them before I can dry them. Frazzling. The washer and dryer live in the scary basement. Most farmers have barn cats. I have basement cats.
Valley Cityâ€™s National Fish Hatchery played host to two National Archery in the Schools Program training sessions Thursday and again Friday, led by Jeffrey Long, an employee of the North Dakota Game and Fish Department and coordinator of the state program.
About 10 people were in Thursdayâ€™s session, and 12 were expected Friday, Long said.
Longâ€™s students included Valley City State University students, a Boy Scout leader, and teachers from Freedom Elementary School and the Circle of Nations school in Wahpeton.
