minot: What am I doing in Minot, Sunday June 10th 2018? - 06/09/18 02:35 PM
Well, if you are like me you are asking yourself "why am I not camping?". Good question, the weather is absolutely perfect for it.
Our favorite campground is the State campground on Lake Audubon just 50 miles South of Minot.
But back to the question of what is happening in Minot this Sunday.
For starters... go worship at the church of your choice with your family.
From Noon to 1:00 take the kids to Main Street Books for a free class of how to start a succulent terrarium in a Mason glass (then give it to dad for fathers day).
Arts In The Park free concert series will be in … (8 comments)

minot: A GREAT place to build. 1/2 acre lot in SE Minot. - 06/08/18 09:10 AM

We just dropped the price on this unique SE Minot property to $26,000.
This is a developed lot with all the utilities to where the house once was. The lot has been cleared and there are no longer any structures upon it. 
Please note that what looks like a driveway is actually platted by the City as a 
Cul-de-sac.
This lot is perfect for the person who wants a LARGE shop on their property or maybe a 4 stall or larger garage.
Current owner purchased this property and leveled the rundown shack, removed the debris, and cleaned up the lot and dead trees. The shack sat on a … (13 comments)

I could add about 6 more events posted on the VisitMinot.org website as well but this is enough to cover for now.
The Final Import Shop Sale is a joint effort by several Lutheran churches in town who closed their joint retail booth at the Norsk Hostfest (North America's largest Scandinavian Festival). Look for some very beautiful sweaters and much, much more at this sale.
If you can not find what you want at the sale above then head to the Surry City Wide Rummage Sale, I'm plan on it!

minot: Thank You Kayleigh - 05/31/18 04:49 PM

My weekest management skill is, without a doubt, hiring people. However, when I hired Kayleigh I got it right... for once.
I hired Kayleigh as my secretary in 2012 after finding her and her husband the perfect home in Berthold ND. Frankie had just been assigned to the Minot Air Force Base and Kayleigh was looking for work. 
She had not worked as a secretary before but she was willing to learn.  Not to long after finding the right home Frankie and Kayleigh brought Jaxson into the world. She has stuck with me through thick and thin and believe me there were some tough … (8 comments)

BIG NEWS in Minot for entrepreneurs. A federal program to develop Opportunity Zones has come to town.

Give Parents a Break Night sounds like a great idea for those who have smaller children.

minot: What's Happening on Memorial Day in Minot ND 2018 - 05/27/18 08:52 AM

There is to much for me to cover here BUT why not start out with the Boy Scout Breakfast.
Thank God for all the events honoring the people of the past. Memorial day is NOT just for lost military loved ones, it's for honoring all people who have been important in our lives. With my siblings coming to town for my daughters graduation we will be doing a lot of reminiscing about mom and dad as well as our grandparents. I will also be remembering lost friends, teachers, preachers and more. I hope you will be too.
Have a wonderful and blessed Memorial Day.
