A garden honoring Mindy Morgenstern is still blooming seven years after she was murdered in her off-campus apartment in Valley City.
Morgenstern was a 22-year-old Valley City State University senior when she was strangled and stabbed to death by then-Barnes County jailer Moe Gibbs Sept. 13, 2006.
To honor Morgenstern, several Valley City people created a memorial garden in the spring of 2007. Dan Preston was one of the individuals who helped establish the foundation of the garden with his gifts and labor.

The show, which will be put on by Paul and Jarrod Lindemann, fixed base operators for the airport, will start at 6 p.m. and last for about 20 minutes, said airport Manager Mike Lerud.
