Valentine’s Day 2023 is a celebration of love for many in our community. For Harold and Linda Dragseth, of Watford City, it’s also a chance for reflection on love at first sight, 50-plus years of marriage, and a near-death experience that inspire them to appreciate every day, and every moment together.
Harold and Linda met in their hometown of Williston in 1971.
“The moment I saw Harold, I knew I was going to marry him,” says Linda.

“He had such a nice car,” she grins. “I thought, Geez he’s pretty good looking.”
