13 Jun 2018 Events

Stanley, ND – The Mountrail County Health Foundation is teaming up again this year with the Stanley Rec-Stanley Park District and the Stanley Public Schools to issue a challenge to Mountrail County: Get OFF the Couch and GO Summer Challenge!!!

A punch card has been created with different events throughout the summer. All Stanley Public School system children received their punch card and rules last week, along with the flyer for the Back 2 School Bash.  Additional punch cards and rules are available at Town and Country Credit Union, BNC Bank, American Bank Center and the T.H. Reiarson Rural Health Clinic.

Rules are that for each event a child/adult completes on the punch card they will receive a stamp. Whoever has the most stamps on their punch card wins a Family ND Getaway Weekend sponsored by the MCHF.  In case of a tie, a drawing will be held for the trip.  Consolation prizes will be Scheels gift cards.  This event is open for all ages.
