Katie Johnson to speak on her mission trip to La Antigua, Guatemala on Sunday, June 28th

This past spring break, UND’s College of Nursing brought a group of volunteers to Guatemala to team up and take part in the God’s Child Project. The team consisted of three nursing faculty members, one family nurse practitioner and her mother, eleven undergraduate nursing students, one social work student, and one communication/international relations student.

Over the course of eight days, the team spent time serving in a variety of capacities and had the opportunity to participate in cultural and recreational activities that Guatemala had to offer.

Katie Johnson, who was among the students attending, will be giving a presentation and speaking about the eight day mission trip she took to La Antigua, Guatemala. It will be held at Zion Lutheran Church in Mohall on Sunday, June 28th, beginning at 10:00 a.m. A light lunch will follow. There will be a free will donation, with all proceeds going towards rebuilding the Casa Jackson Malnutrition Center.

“I would like to say thank you to each and every one of you for your amazing support. This trip would not have been possible without your help, and I look forward to sharing my experiences with each of you!” Katie said.

Citizens State Bank at Mohall is
celebrating their 100th year this week

During Citizens State Bank at Mohall’s 100th celebration this week, June 22nd to June 26th, stop in at their main office in Mohall and view some of the bank’s memorabilia from the past 100 years.

Citizens State Bank at Mohall, with branch offices in Sherwood and Lansford, are celebrating a milestone this week, as the bank is celebrating their 100th year of business from Monday, June 22nd to Friday, June 26th.

The bank was originally chartered as the Citizens State Bank of Antler in 1915 with Cash M. English as president, M. A. Boyum as vice president, and John Boyum as cashier. In 1921, E. L. Hubbard was elected cashier of the bank, starting a 39 year term of association with the bank that terminated with his death in 1960.

After being chartered to Antler in 1915, it was moved to Mohall ten years later. That year, 1925, was one of many changes. Elmer Hubbard became president, with his wife, M. Vivian Hubbard, as cashier, and the corporate name was changed to The Citizens State Bank at Mohall.

Elmer stepped down in 1954 and his son-in-law, Jack Banker, who joined the bank in 1953, became president. Prior to joining the Mohall bank, he was associated with the Union National Bank of Minot, the Merchants and Farmers Bank of Cavalier, and the First State Bank of Park River. Jack’s wife, Betty, was elected assistant cashier in 1956 and vice-president in 1961.

James Mathiason joined the bank in 1959 as teller, and was elected assistant cashier in 1961. In 1984, the ownership was transferred to Jim Mathiason and shared by local investors and employees. This ownership was in place for approximately five years until the Jorgenson Holding Company became the new owner. Transition of ownership took place on Monday, March 6th, 1989.

The Jorgenson family continues to own and operate The Citizens State ... (To read this article and more, see this week's issue of the Renville County Farmer.)
