Dahlstrom Motors revisited

The Dahlstrom Donation


Back in September we wrote these words about Dahlstrom motors and the the volunteer help in Minot.  Dahlstrom Motors is in Oslo Minnesota between Grafton and Grand Forks, just off of interstate 29.

Oslo also understands floods. If my memory serves Oslo has been surrounded by water and sometimes cut off from the “mainland” for several weeks at a time in the Spring and they sympathize with their neighbors to the West. In trying to help with the clean up in Minot a vehicle was needed to carry people and supplies since most volunteers show up in RV’s and have no other transportation. Bill Sharpe sent out a call for a vehicle and Dahlstrom’s generously donated a suburban. Just saying thank you seems a bit pedestrian but I’m not sure what else to do. It was generous and much appreciated. Since this is a blog about Minnesota North and North Dakota and our “life together”, if you are ever in the neighborhood of Oslo stop by and say hello and thank you.

I haven’t been back to Dahlstrom to thank him and let him know the progress that has been made, but I have been informed that the vehicle gets quite a workout and has served the volunteers well.  If you recognize any of them please let me know who they are.  We know that a lot of folks have gone over to Minot from MInnesota North.  Grace Lutheran in Chisolm and Pastor Breitbarth made a trip and we appreciate it.  I just heard that Pastor Neels from Niagara North Dakota mader the trip and I await a story from him as well.  Here are some pictures of the Dahlstrom vehicle and pictures of people, but I don’t know who the people are. If you recognize any of these folks please let me know who they are.

Who are these people?

and these?

Volunteers needed

Volunteers are needed to assist with flood relief efforts throughout North Dakota. Especially hard hit have been McLean & Ward counties (the surrounding areas of Minot & Garrison).

Lutheran Disaster Response is asking for volunteers to call 1-800-366-9841 or you may contact Joan Buchhop at

Kirk Rosin has a team in the field today (April 27) in the Wheatland/Chafee area. He has a tool trailer and he is willing to move it to where it’s needed and to help other volunteers. He and his team are extremely experienced in flood/water cleanup. If you are available, don’t hestiate to call the hotline or contact Joan.
