I am writing to thank the many friendly people I encountered during my recent visit to Dickinson.
I arrived in town via Interate 94 and one of the first things I noticed was the Wurst shop. My husband makes his own sausage and I thought it would be nice to bring home some of his favorite delicacies.
Ken Molitor offered me samples of a variety of sausages and recommended seasonings to use for our wild game. We exchanged recipe ideas and I left with a smile and a bag full of goodies, including cheese buttons and head cheese.
My next stop was the T-Rex Plaza where I discovered Local Charm, a gift shop where local artists sell their work, and a portion of the proceeds go to RSVP. I found a charming bracelet for my daughter’s birthday and was pleased that I was helping to support local volunteers.
The mall itself was a pleasant change from the usual shopping experience. I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed the music playing over the speakers at a mall!
Ted Jafvert told me how the mall had grown and changed over the last few months. As I wandered though the shops I was impressed by their unique nature and the bargains I found there.
I met friends for lunch at Hawks Point, located in the assisted living center at Dickinson State. What a magnificent facility. I felt like I was at a four-star hotel.
I so enjoyed my visit to Dickinson and I have told my friends and neighbors what a wonderful city you have. Thank you for a lovely day.
