COMMUNITY THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS • WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2014 Page 5 ...... TT ....... 1 They moved into their new three bedroom, three bathroom home which was built by Jim Zidon with woodwork and cabi- nets made by Tommy Gemmill in December 2013. The entire home is decorated with Sioux memorabilia. The oldest item is a program dated 1947 for a game between the Rabbit Chokers and Stump Jumpers (LIND and NDSU). A favorite of Mike's would be his collection of about 20 Sioux bob- ble heads, but one can find any number of specialty items, in- cluding lockers from the arena, jerseys, posters and photos like the hallway, the Home of the Sioux sign is proudly displayed on the fence facing the house, and even an Ed Belfour hockey stick stands against the wall. Nearly everything is done in green and white. The Dvorak's hospitality and love of entertaining is evident on the signature wall in the entry way where each guest signs the wall with a pen in green or black, or course Special lighting is used to accent the dCcor both inside and out. The large kitchen and dining area provide a welcoming gathering spot for coffee and con- versation. The patio area features a fire pit and an outdoor music system, which creates another en- tertainment area. Dayton and Kelly Larson 424 Briggs Avenue Historical Taintor Block/Code Block (as written on the brick building) was built after the fire of 1901 by proprietors J.B. Tain- tor (owner of J.B. Taintors Meat Market) and Ed Code (installed Park Rivers 1 st local telephone system). The second floor at that time consisted of doctors' offices and also a dance hall. The original hard wood floors, vaulted ceil- ings, crown molding, and ceiling lights can still be seen today. The second floor has since been reno- vated into apartments. In the 1930's, the north side on the first floor was a Post Office, while the south side of the build- ing was occupied as the Red Owl. In years later, the Red Owl be- came doctors' offices, a clinic, and to present day, a chiropractic clinic. The north side of the first floor was a coast to Coast store, Deutz's Photography, and Wayne's Decorating Den. In 2008, Dayton and Kelly decided to remodel the north side of the first floor. The first job to be done was to remove the "store front look" by relocating the front door to the side, and pushing out the wall between the front windows. In doing this, they discovering huge plates of glass that were in- side the wall from the original Post Office. The remodel included new ceilings, floors, walls and a garage that was once a storage room for the earlier businesses. There will be a lot of"old" mixed in with a twist of "new" on this tour! The women behin00 I the Tour of Homes All you need to know about P.E.O. PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The mission of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, an international philanthropic ed- ucational organization, is to pro- mote educational opportunities for women, and education con- tinues to be the primary philan- thropy. Over 80,000 women have been recipients of over $175 million in financial assistance of grants, loans, scholarships and awards through EE.O. philanthropies in- cluding the Program for Continu- ing Education, Educational Loan Fund, International Peace Schol- arship, Scholar Awards and the STAR Scholarship. The grants are made possible from voluntary contributions form EE.O. chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada and gifts and bequests from LEO. members and others. Applications for the grants or scholarships are made through a lo- cal P.E.O. chapter. Anyone inter- ested in information about the philanthropies may contact Phyl- lis Lofisgard, president of Chap- ter Q, or any EE.O. member. Chapter Q, which was formed in 1928, annually awards scholar- ships to Park River Area High School graduating senior women. The EE.O. Sisterhood main- tains six educational philanthro- pies: EE.O. Educational Loan Fund is a revolving loan fund established in 1907 to lend money to worthy women students to assist them in securing a higher education. Cottey College is an accredited liberal arts college for women at Nevada, MO, owned and sup- ported by the P.E.O. Sisterhood since 1927. P.E.O. International Scholar- ship Fund was established in 1949 to provide scholarships for inter- national women students to pursue graduate study in the U.S. and Canada. EE.O. Program for Continuing Education was established in 1973 to provide need-based grants to women whose education has been interrupted and who find it neces- sary to return to school to support themselves and /or their famili es. P.E.O. Scholar Awards was es- tablished in 1991 to provide sub- stantial awards to women who are pursuing a graduate degree or are engaged in graduate research. The STAR Scholarship, estab- lished in 2009, is a nonrenewable scholarship for graduating high school senior women that must be used in the academic year fol- lowing graduation. Cheri Lothspeich 620 Briggs Avenue "Cede mile faille" is stenciled on the front door at the Lothspe- ich home. This literally means 100,000 welcomes and is Cheri's greeting to those who enter her comfortable and cozy home. Her house on Briggs Avenue in Park River, which originally belonged to the Bennington family, is somewhere around 90 years old and has the character and person- ality to go with it. Cheri had been looking for a home in Park River for about one year when she stepped into the foyer of this house and felt it give her a hug -- she knew she was home. Since that time she has spent countless hours on person- alizing and updating the house. Refinished and refurbished furniture is displayed among other items of special meaning to Cheri. From the once discarded mailbox from the previous ASCS offices (where her mother worked) which proudly displays antique Christmas ornaments, to the pair of well worn boots hold- ing floral arrangements to the card catalog cabinet from the WCAS library, to the generations of family photos scattered and hung around the house. This home says "Cheri lives here and loves her home." She said, "nothing here is expensive but everything is precious." Countless hours have been spent on hands and knees refin- ishing the hardwood floors, spe- cial wall treatments are evidence, even her mother's jewelry has been arranged for wall hangings and other decorations along with antique family china and a very special Nativity set made by her mother with the stable made by her father. Guests will enjoy seeing the updates and care taken to pre- serve an older home and turn it into a very comfortable and wel- coming one. Cookies and refreshments will be served in the city meeting room at 514 Briggs.
