The holiday Business After Hours promoted by the West Fargo Area Chamber of Commerce last Thursday was their biggest event of this type ever, according to Chamber Executive Director Chris Barton. "A total of 164 people, including exhibitors and guests, attended and we're pretty excited about that," Barton said.
Madison Pearson's eyes shone as bright as the lights on the City Christmas tree as she helped West Fargo Mayor Rich Mattern flip the switch Monday evening, illuminating the 25-foot ash tree on the front lawn of City Hall for approximately 200 guests to witness. The name of the second grader at L.E.
The City of West Fargo has brand new Christmas decorations gracing Sheyenne Street - holiday flags featuring a decorated Christmas tree with blue sky background and a 'season's greeting' message, all accented by light enhancers. Seventeen of them line the street all the way from Sandy's Donuts on the corner of Main Avenue and Sheyenne Street to Sooper Stop on 7th Avenue. City crews have been busy installing them this past week as time permits.
To steal a phrase from that popular holiday song...It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The community is alive with lights, and the new fallen snow that now blankets the ground only adds to the aura of the landscape. Driving to work in the still of darkness this morning this became more apparent than ever, with lights shining brightly and brilliantly in every direction as far as the eye could see. Very soon City crews will also be adding to the aesthetics of the season, completing their annual ritual of hanging Christmas decorations along Sheyenne Street and Main Avenue.
Over four years and going strong, Todd and Denise Jacobson continue their commitment to high quality, customer service at Sooper Stop, their hands-on, locally owned neighborhood convenience store situated on the corner of Sheyenne Street and 7th Avenue in West Fargo. Stop in anytime and you'll see the same familiar faces picking up that freshly brewed cup of hot coffee, filling up with gas, or checking out the ever-growing food line-up available daily in the popular 'deli' area. In order to better serve the ever-increasing customer base, plans are in the works for a total remodel of the st
What a difference 24 hours can make. From 40 above late Sunday afternoon, to blizzard like conditions Monday evening and seven below temperature readings with a 20 below wind chill Tuesday morning, it appears winter has certainly arrived, with at least a little bit of fury. The West Fargo Police Department was in the thick of things, kept busy by "those first of the year winter crashes," according to Captain Mike Reitan. The Department received calls of eight accident reports during the approximate 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Fill the Dome benefits food pantries Several area students have been working long and hard with a specific goal in mind - to literally 'fill the dome' with food donations that will be given to local food pantries to assist families in need - a wonderful gesture in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday. The initial idea was conceived last June when a group of local students brainstormed to come up with an event that would truly make a difference in the community. Billed as the largest youth led food drive in the area's history, the project has been a combined effort of youth of all a
Over 30 young ladies, ages 4 through 8, decorated themselves with fancy hats, boas, jewelry, and other glitzy accessories to take in the West Fargo Park District sponsored Teddy Bear Tea held Saturday at the Veterans Memorial Arena. Christine Chapweske, president of The Etiquette Professionals of Fargo, a business specializing in confidence building etiquette, manners, and protocol training, coordinated the activity. The room featured tables decorated with pretty pink tablecloths, accented by an assortment of fancy decorated tea cookies on silver platters.
West Fargo City Commissioners agreed Monday night by a 4-1 vote to allocate $2,500 toward a feasibility study for a proposed golf course south of I-94. Westport Beach developers are willing to donate 360 acres of land, located north of 52nd Avenue West, for an 18-hole golf course. The Commission tabled action on the matter at their Oct.
For more than a century, The Salvation Army has made wishes come true for the less fortunate men, women and children in our community over the holidays and all year-round. As I walked into the grocery story this last weekend to purchase groceries for the Thanksgiving holiday, I was taken aback in a very good way by the sound of that familiar bell that you hear ring as the kickoff for the holiday season.
