“Raking in” a family tradition

March 9, 2012

As far as roots go, Cal Schaefer is literally, and figuratively, rooted firmly in place at the North Dakota Winter Show.

“I’ve had a booth right here since ‘73, in the same exact spot,” Schaefer said, pointing to the ground of the Main Exhibit building.

Schaefer began working at the show in 1963 doing general labor.

“I worked in the barns, wherever they needed help: cleaning, setting up all the rodeos and stage shows.” The job didn’t pay very well, as Schaefer recalled, “It was only a dollar and a quarter an hour.”

VC seeks PD chief applicants

“It looks like a couple others are talking about it locally, I just had a city officer come in and talk to me about it yesterday, so I’m pretty certain there will be local people applying for this position,” he said. ‘We’re going to have a large group of people to look at.”
