XDABNVPYAK Thank you for creating and maintaining this web-site. My 88 year old father was born on a farm a couple miles south of Sherwood. He lived there until his family moved to Bottineau when he was in high school. He would return and visit friends (Max Hurdelbrink and family) until 1990 or so. He enjoyed looking at the photos of the churches and a few of the other photos of building he remembers. Sincerely Lisa McFarlane

If you know of anyone in your community that would be interested in purchasing this equipment and opening a workout place, this would be a great opportunity. This equipment is used but in great shape. New this equipment was over $18,000 and I am selling for $10,000 which is a small investment. If you have any questions or would like more info or pictures just email me or call me @ 228-3228 or 871-2277 Thanks for your time

Tom Nelson from Sherwood, Oregon

I am from the Grand Forks area, but moved to Oregon with my family in 1978. My children grew up in Eugene, Oregon but they all live in the Portland area now. So, last year my wife and I moved to be closer to them. We ended up in a town called Sherwood. Today I was cleaning out my garage and found a old ruler with "Ogilvie & Roisum Sherwood, North Dakota --- Peters ---- Weatherbird Solid Leather Shoes" written on it. I am impressed with your web site. If anyone can give me more information on that old ruler, please email me.
