What can you tell Ron Abrahamson about this old canoe he has come to own?
A plaque on it says it was made by McGregor Industries Inc. of Moorhead, but there is no indication of the year it was constructed.
“I know it was designed to slice through waves and to prevent water from coming into it,” Ron, of Fargo, writes. “It’s definitely a two-person canoe.
“But I’ve never seen another canoe like this one, and believe me, I’ve looked!” he says.
Ron is hopeful a “Neighbors” reader might have worked at McGregor and so would know something about this canoe and when it was built.
“It draws attention when I take it out on the lake,” he says.
So, friends, can you fill Ron in on his canoe? Let “Neighbors” know.
And then this hat check was mailed in Fargo to “Neighbors” by an anonymous person who wrote, “I found it in the pages of an old book from the North Dakota State University library.
“It says: from ‘Curve Station’ to ‘Fargo, N.D.’
“The question is: Where was Curve Station?
“Maybe your readers know.”
Do you, readers?
