North Country has a fully licensed kitchen tucked away behind the front counter, which she intends to use for retail sales production and North Country Former students of Dewey #o hold reunion 5 years in the making FAIRDALE, N.D. -- Dewey School #120, which was consolidated from Sep- tember of 1954 through May 1962, celebrated the 50th An- niversary of it's closing at the Fairdale Community Center, Saturday May 26, 2012.
