Mattern: Thank you to the Pioneer for 50 years of serving our community
To the West Fargo Pioneer staff.
Congratulations on the 50th anniversary of the West Fargo Pioneer. West Fargo has
grown by leaps and bounds, but we have been able to maintain our small-town
atmosphere thanks in part to the work of this paper.
Whether it is the local high school sports scores or coverage of the newest business,
the West Fargo Pioneer has kept our residents informed and connected to the
community they call home.
Your reporting has kept our residents in the know during major events, such as
renaming to the City of West Fargo in 1967, merging with Riverside in 1989, starting the
Sheyenne Diversion in 1990, and doubling our city limits and population over the last 20
years. Now, with the revitalization of our downtown and a bright future on our horizon
we are so grateful to have a resource such as the West Fargo Pioneer in our community
to share our news.
Your dedication to West Fargo is tremendous and celebrating this milestone is well
deserved. Here's to another 50 years!
Mayor Rich Mattern,
City of West Fargo
