I hope if you're in town this weekend you'll consider getting caught up in the community spirit by celebrating some aspect of West Fest. Simply stated, West Fest is one of the most enjoyable family-oriented community celebrations you'll find anywhere. Chris Barton and her staff at the Chamber have been working long and hard to ensure that the 16th annual event will be the best it can possibly be. From the always crowd-pleasing grand parade with over 100 entries, to the two-day Valley Vintage Car Show at the Vets Arena, to the magnificent kids and teen line-up, to the fantastic fireman's
The West Fargo Area Chamber of Commerce and the West Fest Committee are placing the finishing touches on the 16th Annual West Fest Community Days with this year's theme "The City on the Grow" - "Proud to be an American City," which will be celebrated this weekend, Saturday, Sept. 15, and Sunday, Sept.
The Midwest's largest agricultural event is returning to the region with the 27th Annual Big Iron 2007 Farm Show and Exposition set to run Sept. 11, 12 and 13, at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo. Showtime will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The event is a function of the Red River Valley Fair association that started in 1980 in Casselton, moved to The Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo in 1981, and has been continuing there successfully ever since.
Members of the West Fargo Street and Water Departments extended helping hands last week in Northwood as clean-up efforts continued in the community ravaged by a deadly tornado. City employees Bob Olson, George Grossman and Tory Nissen spent Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 28 and 29, helping out; while Art Peterson and John Freeman, Terry Bommersbach and Nissen lent assistance on Thursday, Aug.
I travel the 13th Avenue route from Sheyenne Street at least two times a day. Last Friday as I was driving home from work for the long Labor Day weekend, the impact of the change in the area on the south side from Sheyenne Street all the way to 9th Street East finally grasped my whole attention, as I was slowly taking in the landscaping activity both at Sheyenne Crossings and the dental office. My how the 13th Avenue East route has changed in the last 25 years, from the barren openness of agricultural land, to 'bigger time' metro life complete with all the positive trappings. Everything
I truly love cooking, but I enjoy it even more so when I have an idea of what the people I'm preparing the meals for would like to eat. Wouldn't it be great to have each day's menus laid out for you a week in advance so all you had to do was shop for the ingredients and then prepare, no questions asked? I could cook on a regular basis like that very easily. This week the recipes I'm featuring are those for one of those evening meals with all the courses complementing each other, some of which can be prepared handily ahead of time.
Pioneer Days will feature a variety of entertainment but one individual who is sure to stand out is 13-year-old yodeler Kristi Goldade from Wishek, N.D., who will be taking the stage for special performances Saturday, Sept. 22 and Sunday, Sept.
If all goes according to plans, there will be a new tenant in the former Dakota Heartland facility that has been sitting vacant for several years on the north side of 13th Avenue East, west of 6th Street East. Integrated Health Marketing, which will do business as a medical clinic facility, was granted a planned unit development amendment and a conditional use permit by West Fargo City Commissioners Monday night for an illuminated, freestanding sign with electronic message board at the site that will include staff names as well as promote information pertinent to the site.
Caroline Vetter is hoping to be welcomed by a sea of royal blue 'Super C' T-shirts Saturday when family and friends gather in Rendezvous Park for a very special party to help celebrate a very special day - the little West Fargo girl's fifth birthday. She will be joined by her dad and mom, Tyler and Abigail; her two brothers and sister, Andrew, 9, Ben, 7 and Danielle, 2; grandparents, Leo and Joanne Vetter from Bismarck and Jim and Roseann Burkett, Sioux Falls; Tyler's brother, Toby and his wife, Deb, from Moorhead; and a passel of other friends and acquaintances intent on offering up a varie
The Safe Communities Coalition of the Red River Valley held a news conference Aug. 16 at West Fargo's Veterans Memorial Arena with the focus on North Dakota and Minnesota law enforcement efforts to crack down on impaired driving during the Labor Day holiday. Those attending had both the opportunity to observe an impaired driving simulator in action and to drive the simulator.
