The Eagles de— cided to help and appointed a committee to help raise money. They also “passed the hat,” and the $123 they collected became the seed money for the “Home on the Range for Boys.” Out near Sentinel Butte, Belgian immigrants Edward and Emma Lievens, read about Father Cassedy’s dream in the Bismarck Tribune. They were nearing retirement and decided to deed their land — more than 900 acres — to Father Cassedy for his project. Bishop Ryan re- leased Fr. Cassedy from his parish assignments, and the priest hit the road to raise money across North Dako— ta, as well as his home state of New Jersey. By January, the Bismarck Eagles raised $5,000 to- 'ward a dormitory. Fr. Cassedy traveled to Father Flana- gan’s Boys’ Home in Nebraska, to learn all he could frOm Monsignor Wegner, the director. Back on the ranch, a granary was remodeled, and on July 28, 1950, Fr. Cassedy moved into it with his first three boys: Ed— die Schwartz, Leonard Schwartz, and Harvey Gifford. By the time Fr. Cassedy wrote his first Christmas letter on behalf of Home on the Range, excavation had begun for a dormitory for as many as 35 boys. In his letter, Cassedy mentioned donations they had received, including 43 head of cattle, 20 calves, 62 chickens, 7 pigs, 22 rabbits, 9 horses, and 5 dogs. Father Cassedy suffered a serious heart attack jUSt seven years after he founded Home on the Range; he was only 49, and he spent the next two years recu- perating in New Jersey. Father Cassedy returned to Sentinel Butte on Oc— tober lst, 1959, where he wrote his annual Christmas letter. Two weeks later, he had another heart attack. This one was fatal. He was buried on top of a hill overlooking the ranch. It was one of his favorite places to pray. Dakota Datebook written by Merry Helm.
