What Spring brings to a North Dakota small town...

 Spring brings hope to our North Dakota small town of Wishek. The North Dakota economy is booming through energy, agriculture and manufacturing sectors. Our state is financially strong. North Dakota boasts the lowest unemployment rate in the nation. In Wishek, our taxable sales continue to rise, pointing to strong economic growth. We have quality jobs readily available. There are affordable homes for sale in Wishek. New city housing lots with city water and sewer provided and no special assessments are now for sale.
With melting snow and warm temperatures, we are relishing in the arrival of an array of species of birds all around us.
The air is fresh and there is a silence across our prairie with the only sounds often coming from the birds singing, honking, quacking and squawking. 

While we know there is always a chance there could be a little more snow and ice in the month of April, it won't last for long. Farmers are busy planning for an upcoming farming season. Many local Wishek residents are planning their summer vegetable gardens. Track and field and golf season have kicked off for our local junior high and high school kids. The local city park is filled with children sliding and swinging with glee as their parents enjoy the outdoors alongside of them.

No matter the season, there is always time to polka in Wishek. The young and old enjoy our native Germans from Russia heritage. 
 On a Saturday night, you might find Wishek residents taking some yodeling and country music like they did last Saturday night from local talent, Kristi Goldade.  Dakota Air The Radio Show came to Wishek and an old fashioned variety show was held in front of a packed house at the Wishek Civic Center.
 Spring brings continued success from our students. Youth are the future in Wishek. Whether it's the success of the Speech team, the above State Science Fair participants, the State Dual Wrestling Champions or State Music participants, our students excel across numerous academic, musical and athletic activities. 

The future is bright this Spring in Wishek. What is your favorite aspect of Spring?
