Newfolden is gaining a reputation as a small town that knows how to do things in a big way, and that legacy continues tomorrow as the Newfolden Co-op Elevator celebrates a century of service with a community gathering and a VIP Speaker …
Native son and US District Judge John Tunheim is the featured speaker in a community celebration at the Marshall County Central High School. Like everyone else in the community, Tunheim has a special connection to the elevator as the son of former elevator Manager, Ray Tunheim.
Judge Tunheim has served as a United States District Judge since 1995 including the chairmanship of the U.S. Assassination Records Review Board, handling public disclosure related to the work of the Warren Commission and the death of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
Over the past 100 years the Newfolden Co-op Elevator has grown to a full service agricultural enterprize, managing the marketing needs of farmers across the area along with a full line of planting in-puts; seed, fertilizer and crop protection, and a staff agronomist.
Hundreds are expected as things get underway at the Newfolden High School Tuesday night at 6:30pm.
