Bravo to Pink participants
The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
*Bravo to the record turnout of participants in the 11th annual Running of the Pink in Jamestown. The event on June 2 drew 710 registered participants, 121 more than registered in 2016, when the last record was set with 589 registrants. The event raises funds for breast and cervical cancer screenings.
*Bravo to the addition of a white bison calf to the herd at the National Buffalo Museum. The female bison is a descendant of White Cloud and came from the Shirek Buffalo Ranch at Michigan, N.D. White Cloud was an albino buffalo that lived at the museum grounds for 20 years before her death.
*Bravo to the continuing improvements being made at the 1883 Stutsman County Courthouse. The Register of Deeds, Treasurer's Office was restored in time for this year's tourist season. More exhibits were also added.
*Bravo to the late Jim Christ, 68, who was a fixture at Blue Jay and Jimmie sporting events for years. Christ, of Jamestown, died June 4. Born with cerebral palsy, he couldn't play sports but was devoted to the Jamestown High School and University of Jamestown teams. JHS Principal Adam Gehlhar said "It's a big loss to our JHS family."
*Bravo to Sydney Soulis and Tommy Falk, Blue Jay softball and baseball team players, respectively, who were named Class A all-state in their sports on June 4.
