Super Saturday is approaching

Before there were Highways
By Delores Klusmann

Time is passing quickly and only about 10 days until Super Saturday. If you have not registered your rummage sale, please do so in your respective towns by May 30, as that is the deadline to get your sale posted on the map.

It should be a great weekend for everybody. The Family Campers of North Dakota will be camping during the weekend of June 6-8 in the North Park of New Salem. They are aware of the rummage sales and I’m sure we will see them out and about on Saturday morning.

We will see many people from neighboring towns and again, I would encourage our hometown folks along the Old Red Trail to show off our towns, and clean up our streets, yards, ditches, etc. Let’s put our best foot forward.

The warm days of the past week have really made the leaves pop, the grass grow, and the flowers are blooming. The buttes, valleys, golf courses, prairies and pastures are a vibrant green and you will enjoy the drive in the country landscape along the Old Red Trail.

Maps of the towns showing the locations of the rummage sales will be available at the area gas stations, restaurants and at the sale sites. Red logo balloons will tell you that you are at the sale site.

Take your calendar and mark June 7 – Super Saturday! Plan to drive the Byway and stop along the way for rummage and activities. It will be a big day for all the towns along Old Red.

Until next time, Be Well, Do Good Work, and see you on Old Red.
