WEST FARGO, N.D. — Area veterans are finding ways to instill a sense of patriotism in a younger generation. For Mrs. Larson and Mrs. Blumer's classrooms at Legacy Elementary School in West Fargo, Thursday was all about the red, white, and blue. "It's always a favorite, every year," says Blumer. Dozens of students spent the morning learning all about America. It's part of the 40&8 veterans' organization's "Flags for First-Graders" program.
FARGO, N.D. — A student organization is trying to raise money for charity by bringing lots of laughter. NDSU's Blue Key Honor Society is hosting its annual "Bison Brevities" show, with the theme "Netflix and Brevs." Students will act in Netflix-themed skits in between talent acts. The proceeds will go to the local non profit Freedom Resource Center, which helps people with disabilities.
FARGO, N.D. — March is National Nutrition Month, which is why one company here is trying to highlight the importance of health, especially for seniors.
