Resolution thanks Engelstad family for ‘their generosity’

The North Dakota Legislature is extending a “thank you” to Engelstad family for “their generosity on behalf of all North Dakotans.”

House Concurrent Resolution 3042 recognizes the donation by the late Ralph Engelstad that made the Ralph Engelstad Arena possible. The resolution calls The Ralph the “finest facility of its kind in the world.”

The resolution also recognizes the donation made by Ralph Engelstad’s daughter, Kris Engelstad McGarry and the Engelstad Foundation “for a state-of-the-art video display,” which will be placed in the Ralph next season.

“The Ralph Engelstad Arena and its related facility, the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center, benefit all North Dakotans,” the resolution states.

The resolution has sponsors of Grand Forks legislators Jake Blum, Emily O’Brien, Ray Holmberg, Scott Meyer, Mark Owens, Mark Sanford, JoNell Bakke, Corey Mock and Curt Kreun. Rep. Thomas Beadle, R-Fargo is also sponsoring the bill.

“The Sixty-sixth Legislative Assembly extends a ‘thank you’ and a deep appreciation from all North Dakota citizens to Kris Engelstad McGarry and her mother, Betty Engelstad,” the resolution reads.
