Deadwood Junction turns five

They opened five years ago and haven't looked back. Deadwood Junction celebrated the anniversary with friends on May 31st.

Employees and owners of Deadwood Junction pose for a picture on the occasion of the fifth anniversary since the store opened.

Deadwood Junction was alive with friends and celebration Saturday, May 31 as they marked their fifth anniversary in business.

Bikes from Grand Forks filled the parking lot as motorcyclists from the Motorcycle Awareness Event based in Grand Forks travelled through with the message of safety. “Look Twice – Save a Life,” is their slogan, said ride organizer Diane Muscroft.

Coincidentally the Motorcycle Awareness Event is also celebrating its fifth anniversary this year. “Five years ago, on our first poker run, we stopped here at Deadwood and we have been stopping every since,” she added.

Muscroft said the expenses of the motorcycle event are covered by RHC Insurance in Grand Forks so any proceeds they take in from the show and shine and barbecue are going to the Boundary Emergency and Transition Housing Society.

The special day at Deadwood featured cake and a beef on a bun special.

Live music was provided by The Cullpeppers— Ellen Tolson, Shannon Kelly-Keough and Terry Keough.
