Wahpeton, North Dakota

Telelaget's 100th Anniversary

The theme was "Let's Rally in the Valley." and members of the 7 Lags rallied at Wahpeton State School of Science. Telelaget was founded in 1907, and celebrated the 100th anniversary of that event at a special Friday evening banquet. Over 80 people attended the 100th Anniversary banquet. A large cake was shared by all. Alice Kirn did a masterful job setting up the display area. John Haugo led the way as master of ceremonies. Marilyn Sorenson, president of the Bygdelagenes Fellesraad, presented Elaine Nordlie, Telelaget's president, with a beautiful gift marking the historic anniversary. The Oftelie family was present as the theme of the banquet was honoring our founders. Gene Estensen gave a short speech honoring Torkel for his contributions to Telelaget. Pictures of those present at the banquet were taken immediately after the banquet. Lag members made the short trip to Fergus Falls, Minnesota, to dedicate a memorial to Torkel Oftelie at his gravesite.
