2016 Finley Days 

Why Are You Proud of Your Community?

​We all know that rural North Dakota is the best kept secret in America. There are many positive things about growing up and living in small town North Dakota.

It is important to celebrate the positive in our hometowns. Big city and bright lights are exciting to go visit, but we all love to come home again …tell us why. For those that are far away and haven’t made it home for a while, what’s your fondest memory? Did you come from Colgate, Luverne, Hope, Blabon, Sherbrook, Pickert, Finley, Sharon, or Golden Lake? Let us know about the good stuff in your community! When you think of your hometown, what puts a smile on your face? Why are you proud of your town?

Please share a short story with a current/historical picture including a brief description that identifies the people or situation revealing why you are proud of your community. The pictures and short stories will be shared on the local town websites: www.finleynd.net or www.hopend.com

Digitally submit pictures/stories to: steelejda@mlgc.com
