Max News

July 31, 2014

Congratulations to Shawn and Nicole (McElwain) Fritel on the birth of their daughter, Bostyn Lynn Fritel. She was born July 24th. Everyone is welcome to enjoy her baby shower being held on August 9th from 1:30-3:30 at the Max Senior Center. Congratulations!

The next big event in Max is the Summer Solstice Celebration, with the rodeo, Light the Night 5K walk/Run, 29-sale City-Wide Rummage Sale plus vendors, community church service, and more.

Remember: One man's junk is another's treasure! Don't miss out on Max's City Wide Rummage Sales on August 2nd. Maps showing locations may be picked up at Cenex, the Cafe, and Bremer Bank on Friday or you can print them off on

Look for these in the Max Civic Center: Perfectly Posh, Down on the Farm Designs, Cloud 9, Britty Britches, Jewelry in Candles, Tupperware, Avon, Collings Custom Crafts, Wildtree, Norwex, Homemade Memories, Scentsy, Pink Zebra, Dove Chocolate, Pampered Chef, Clever Container, Cookie Lee, Youniqu, Makeup Eraser, Matilda Jane, Juice Plus, and Maxi Skirts. Rummage sales shown on the map and the vendors will all be open on Saturday, August 2nd from 9-3.

There is still time to pre-register for Friday August 1st Light the Night 5K Run/Walk. Contact Lesli Talbott for more details. Registration will start at 8:30 p.m. with the run starting at 9 p.m. along with the street dance.

Then join us Sunday for a community worship service at 11 a.m. in the city park. This will be held in the hall if it rains! Bring your own chair or blanket, beverages, and a dish to share for potluck!
Lila Fannik, Lorna Sambor, and Carolyn Barden, attended Don Haugeberg's 90th birthday party in Minot on Saturday. They then attended Sherman and Janice Peterson's 50th anniversary celebration. LaDonna and Roy Hupsky's 3 children were there: Mike, Michelle, and Danny. There were a lot of relatives from all over in attendance.  But their Saturday wasn't done yet....they then attended the reception for Bethany Johnson's and Drew Haner's wedding.

Now, hold onto your hats, it is going to be even busier in Max with a new event, "Farmer's Market". It will be on Main Street in front of the Cafe. The first one will be Saturday, August 9th at 9:30 a.m. and then on Wednesday, August 13th at 10 a.m. Depending on the type of response to this, it will be decided if the Farmers Market should be held one day a week or two days a week. This is open to anyone who wants to bring their produce, jams, baked items, etc., to sell. There won't be any type of fee......but try to bring your own table and chair. There will be signs along the highways informing travelers of this Farmers Market. Hopefully they will pull in. Call 679-2499 if you have any questions.

And still, Save the Date: October 11th. Civic Club is excited to announce that the steak fry will be held Saturday, October 11th with the Fun Pianos show by 176 Keys Traveling Dueling Pianos. More details will come sometime in August.

I received a very fitting 'calendar' of sorts, just what the city of Max needs right now! This August of 2014 will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays. This phenomenon occurs only once every 823 years. The last time was in 1191 and next time will be in 2837!
