Nice news of the day – December 20, 2019

You’ve read about the Honor Flights here on North Dakota Nice before, but did you know the organization just opened the flights up to Vietnam Veterans?  There will be four flights next year; nominate a vet today!

And Happy Friday! Today news is about $1 jeans, Dakota Country, and two rock-and-rolling seniors.  Read on.


The teachers at Des-Lacs Burlington Elementary paid $1 to wear jeans to school, and the money was used to buy presents for kids who may need a little something extra this Christmas.  Bonus: some of the students got to go with to help with the shopping. (KX Net)
