Jefferson Elementary School recently hosted a âSurvivorâ field day for students as a fundraising event, and it proved to be a success. Misti Kauffman, vice president of the PTO which helped establish the event, said it raised around $9,000 after expenses.
Kauffman said the event, which was organized with the help of the physical education department, was well-supported and will likely be done again next year.
CARRINGTON, N.D. â Tuesday marked an important moment in the history of Valley City and its neighbor to the north, Devils Lake.
âThis is a joint meeting of the Devils Lake Outlet Management Advisory Committee and also the Devils Lake Outlet Advisory Committee,â said Gov. Jack Dalrymple. âIf thatâs confusing you, youâre not the only one.â
The five candidates for the two open Valley City City Commission seats, and uncontested Barnes County Commissioners John Froelich and Cindy Schwehr, who are up for reelection this year, addressed the community at a candidate forum Tuesday night at the Hi-Liner Activity Center.
The forum, sponsored by the Valley City Area Chamber of Commerce and moderated by Mercy Hospital director Keith Heuser, was an opportunity for candidates to get their message out by answering questions from the community.
