Hey folks, you’re invited to an Old-Fashioned Sing-Along.

That word comes from the good folks over at First Lutheran Church, located at 916 Main in Williston.

Beth Olsen and crew have put together a fun event that is set to begin at 3 p.m. on Sunday (April 28) at the church.

Officials noted, “together, we’ll lift our voices in a program of hymns, folk songs and favorites.”

There you have it, something for everybody.

Events of this nature are always fun and the only way you’re going to find out is to join in the fun.

Better yet, if everybody invites a friend, that will make for twice the fun.

Refreshments are scheduled to be served following the event.

Now that’s reason enough to attend.


Time is rolling around once again for a special event that has been taking place in Williston for a number of years.

Terri Sorenson informs us St. Peter’s Episcopal Church will again hold its annual Rummage Sale for Charity on Band Day.

This year Band Day falls on May 11 and the sale at St. Peter’s will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day, allowing you plenty of time to drop by.


You should know that all proceeds from this event will go to support the children at St. Marc’s Preschool in Jeanette, Haiti and South Sudanese refugees at the Bidibidi Refugee camp in Uganda.

Adding to the fun of the day, and back by popular demand, will be the fresh home-baked buns.

The buns will be available from 9 am until “we run out.”


Church members have gathered quite a collection of clothing, household items, miscellaneous items and furniture for your shopping enjoyment.

However, if you would like to donate items for the sale, or should you have any questions, you can call and leave a message at the church office at (701) 572-9278.

The event will be held at the church, located at 111 14th St East in Williston.


Along with taking time to check out this worthwhile sale, Band Day offers a wide variety of activities.

Band Day, set for May 11, is one day we all look forward to each year.

That means the Virgil Syverson Performance Center located in Harmon Park will be the center of attention, with a number of musical performances planned.

Watch for complete details on Band Day being published in the Herald.


The word is out tickets for the famed Medora Musical and the pitchfork fondue are for sale online.

You can click on http://www.medora.com to learn more about the upcoming season.

The musical and fondue will run from May 31 to Sept. 7.

Medora is magical and always offers a great family setting.

In addition, Bully Pulpit golf course offers world-class golf.

We’ll pass along further details as the season approaches.


Here’s an event you just might want to take part in.

The James Memorial Art Center is hosting “Out Loud at the James” from 8-10 p.m. on May 17.

The call goes out to stage performers, and that means you.

You are being asked to bring your musical instruments, poems, magic tricks, songs, stories, jokes or any other talent you would like to share with a welcoming crowd of your neighbors and friends.


Whether performing or simply enjoying the coffeehouse-like atmosphere, The James welcomes you to be a part of the open mic night.

There is no charge for entry, however, donations are always welcome.

The James is located at 621 1st Avenue West, in Williston.
