The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Virtual Musclewalk was Saturday, September 5, and Royce & Piper’s Rad Posse of friends and family members could be seen in their bright blue T-shirts as they walked through Rutland. The Nelson’s, Maloney’s, Jacobson’s, Christensen’s, and other Rutland residents took time on the sunny afternoon to support the cause. This year’s event was done virtually due to the pandemic and they hope to have the MDA in-person walk again in 2021. The Rutland fundraising effort raised nearly $4000.00 to support MDA. Congratulations to the Rad Posse for their annual participation and fundraising!
On Sunday, September 6, the Nordland Lutheran Church congregation welcomed Pastor Julie Johnson who began her ministry with the TNT Parish. The TNT Parish is comprised of Nordland Lutheran in Rutland along with Trinity Lutheran Church in Forman and Trinity Lutheran in Havana. Pastor Julie is a familiar face to many from this area where she grew up, but it has been over 40 years since she lived here. Her parents were Orville and Lila Nelson, who owned a farm not far from Silver Lake. Pastor Julie graduated from Sargent Central High School and then moved from the area. She has three children who live in Fargo. Pastor Julie most recently served the Our Savior’s Lutheran Church congregation in Hillsboro, ND. Welcome back home Pastor Julie!Continue reading “Hens Do Crow! Sept. 11, 2020”
