| NCHSF to Raise Funds for New Tub
This summer, the goal of the Nelson County Health Services Foundation is to raise $20,000 for a new bathtub at the NCHS
Care Center in McVille. The current tub is no longer able to be repaired. Fundraising efforts towards this goal will include on-
line and letter writing campaigns as well as activities throughout the week of July 14th culminating with McVille Days on July
18th and 19th. More information on this effort will be announced in local publications as well as on our web-site, http://www.
nelsoncountyhealthsystem.org/nchsf.html and facebook page. If you would like more information on our “tub” campaign or if
you would like to make a donation towards this project, contact the foundation office at 701-322-4328.
Minot Flood Victim Makes McVille Home
In 2011, not long after a neck injury forced Doris Schiele into a Minot nursing facility,
The Souris River reached flood levels it only reaches every 200 – 500 years. Doris needed a new home and was evacuated to the Nelson
County Care Center in McVille, a place she had never heard of and where she knew no one. In a few short months, after the floodwater
receded, it was time for Doris to return to Minot. Throughout her stay in McVille, she had mentioned to a few of the staff members that
maybe she should stay there. Her children, who all reside in the western part of ND, agreed that their mother should stay where she
wanted to be, where she was happiest. Three years later, if you find Doris in her room at the NCHS care center, you will be welcomed into
a very warm and welcoming place where she is surrounded by many of her favorite things. If she is not in her room, she may have taken
the Nelson County Transit bus to Grand Forks for a day of shopping where she loves to hunt for clothing and accessories at bargain
prices. She enjoys bringing her findings home to share with the staff and other residents. On Tuesdays, if the bus makes a trip to Devils
Lake for other purposes, you may find her at the casino enjoying a little fun and excitement. She says she has at least broken even in all of
her trips there and last time made $100. Doris also contributes to the social planning and some business considerations that affect the
residents through her participation on the resident council. Currently, she is organizing a trip to Park Rapids, MN in August to hear a
musical performance the family of her friend Val Larson (who she met at the care center). We are so glad that Doris decided to make the
NCHS Care Center in McVille her home!
