Face-painting firm started in Valley City

June 5, 2012

Thomas Face Painting has been at every major street fair in North Dakota as well as numerous festivals throughout North Dakota and Minnesota, and it all started right here in Valley City. Former Valley City resident Thomas Huus is the founder and owner of Thomas Face Painting, which is now based in West Fargo.

Huus started painting faces about eight years ago as an artist’s way to make ends meet.

“I went to Disney World and saw the face painting stands they had there, and I knew something like that would work in North Dakota because no one else was doing it,” Huus explained.

Farmers market gets donation, changes name

June 5, 2012

Valley City’s Saturday farmers market has been given a new name in honor of Rose Boggetto, a farmers market regular who died April 20.

From now on the market will be called “‘Rose’s Valley City Saturday morning Farmers Market.’ We just did the new signs,” said Becky Huber, who manages the market with brother Arlen Huber.

Rose’s husband, Jon Boggetto of Valley City, presented the market with a $540 check Saturday in her honor.

“She was a big fan of the market and worked at the market registering people,” Boggetto said.
