ON THE COVER

The LineBenders are local "comedy professionals." The group has been around since 2001 but recently moved into a permanent home in Fargo, set to open in March, the Comedy University. The C.U., located at 1535 S University Dr. in Fargo, will host the LineBenders as well as other entertainment groups, both local and national.

Bittersweet Goodbyes On January 13, 2018, my best friend proposed to me on the beach at Naples Pier — after flying one of my friends and her husband down to Florida to surprise me and take photos of the engagement (my dream since I met her freshman year of college). I was shocked and giddy and my answer was "yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes." I'm excited to be planning to spend the rest of my life with him, and this planning also includes a 2,000-mile move. He took a job in Fort Myers, FL, in mid-November. So, as wedding bells are ringing in

I've enjoyed my time working with both this magazine and Spotlight Media throughout the past year. I look forward to reading the issues going forward, keeping up with this wonderful community. North Dakota — and specifically Fargo — will always be near and dear to my heart. We have a special

the

linebenders In 2001, Marty Jonason decided that the region could use a professional improv comedy troupe. He held auditions and The LineBenders were born. Ownership changed hands in 2003 when Bill Lucas took over the troupe and eventually sold the company to JJ Gordon in 2008. Gordon, the artistic director, explains who the LineBenders are and the impact they make — both locally and nationally — as well as an update on their new space — the Comedy University. Photos by J. Alan Paul Photography 18 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


q&a What do the LineBenders offer throughout the year?

JJ Gordon: There is hardly a weekend where The LineBenders are not performing or using their unique set of skills in some way or another. Here are some examples. Touring The LineBenders have traveled from coast to coast with their unique brand of improv comedy. Over the last 17 years, more than 1,500 companies have invited The LineBenders to perform at their company functions. That means we have had the pleasure of providing laughs for somewhere north of 100,000 people. Every fall, we offer a season of free shows called “The Living Room Series” during which we bring a full improv show to fans’ living rooms. You can host a neighborhood event, a fundraiser, a birthday bash or just about anything. We provide the entertainment. It’s the least we can do to show our gratitude to all of the people who support us during the year. Custom Trivia with a Twist Every Tuesday, members of The LineBenders host an evening of general knowledge trivia at Fargo Billiards and Gastropub. Every question is written by comedians to be funny and challenging. Questions like “Name That Stache” (where teams must identify a celebrity from JUST their mustache) have been around since we started hosting in 2010 — a longrunning staple that has also become very popular for corporate events. We mix questions based around your company with some of our favorites from the past eight years. Oh yeah, we also provide some pretty sweet prizes — free t-shirt, anyone? Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) The LineBenders leave the laughs at the door and focus on creating real-world scenarios dealing with mental crisis to aid in law enforcement training. We have had the pleasure of touring the region acting in these training scenarios. Situations deal with manic bipolar individuals, schizophrenia and suicide. These scenarios last for almost an hour at a time. Our small part in these training exercises is changing the way law enforcement agencies serve the public. We use the same skills as a traditional improv show, but the end result is making our communities a better place to live. We are very proud and honored to have been

a part of these training sessions for the last eight years. When a Crisis Intervention Training participant tells us that our small portion of the training was incredibly realistic and helped them hone the skills to help those community members, it takes our breath away. Improv Skills in the Workplace The LineBenders also get a chance to tell their story to companies across the country while helping to build communication, teamwork and improve company morale. We all have sat through a boring presentation and we wanted to change the approach to onsite workshops. It’s like having a live improv comedy show during the business day. Add to that the fact that laughter helps your memory retain ideas and concepts, it’s hard to top and sure to please any group.

In what ways can people get involved — on stage or off?

JG: We always have opportunities for those who would like to learn improv or sharpen their skills. On Thursdays, we offer a drop-in improv class for beginners and intermediates. Non-stop fun and a great way to improve your reaction time. A lot of business professionals come, we also see some retirees looking for something out of the ordinary and, of course, the college-aged folks. We are also looking for people who want to perform in the new space. Recitals, sketch comedy groups, stand up, performance artists, classes — you name it. If you are looking for space to create something special, let’s talk.

What about the LineBenders specifically adds to the culture of Fargo-Moorhead? What’s unique about it?

JG: Our company provides a small piece of relief from everyday life. When you come to a LineBenders show, you get to laugh, participate in the comedy and have a story to tell folks the next day. We also feel like we add to the business community. All the members of The LineBenders are paid. Over the last five years, our total payouts to performers have surpassed anyone’s wildest dreams. Those individuals pay taxes, rent, shop at stores and add to our local economy. It’s a perfect blend of art and business.

YEAR TO VOLUNTEER JJ Gordon: In 2019, we're launching our third “Year to Volunteer” in which we donate our shows to organizations looking to host a fundraiser, but don’t want to break the bank on entertainment. We will have a large collection of dates and groups can contact us to get on the list. From there, we will choose a date and help put together a show that the nonprofit can use to fundraise or celebrate the individuals who volunteer for their organization. Just another way we can show our sincere appreciation and gratitude for helping make The LineBenders the longest running professional improv troupe in the region.

NEW VENUE Tell us about your new space — the Comedy University! JJ Gordon: For years, we’ve bounced around from venue to venue, and we greatly appreciate the folks who have hosted us, but it was time we had a place to call home. We’ll still tour, but we can now invite groups from the region and nation to come to Fargo-Moorhead and perform on our stage. We’ll perform there as well, but the end game is introducing the awesome people of the FM area to some of the best comedy that North America has to offer. What will the schedule look like? JG: In the beginning, it will feature The LineBenders a lot. We are planning on every single Friday and Saturday in March — with multiple shows on St. Patrick’s Day. After that, we are opening the doors to welcome other groups from anywhere. You’ll see the local high school troupes in here, as well as professional additions. I would highly suggest checking out our Facebook page and website because the schedule will be constantly evolving. Something for everyone!

20 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Theatre B's Carrie Wintersteen wears many hats — co-founder, ensemble member, executive director, "company mom" — making her the perfect person to tell us about the organization.

q&a Why “Theatre B” — both the name and the concept?

Carrie Wintersteen: At the time we were founded, it seemed Fargo-Moorhead needed an alternative to school theatre and musicals. People of a “certain age” may remember that there used to be 45's — recordings of singles where the “A” side was the popular song that radio stations would play again and again, and the “B” side was something the artist chose — called the Flip Side. That’s how we thought of Theatre B, as the Flip Side to what was already being done around town. Plus, we were presenting on Broadway at the time, so it fit.


UPCOMING EVENTS The Moors Auditions March 4 and 5 There are three open women’s roles and three roles in the show who have been precast from the ensemble. The Moors by Jen Silverman April 26-May 12 Sunday Matinees March 29 & April 6 ASL April 28 Doors open at 7 p.m. Show begins at 7:30. Set on a bleak and unforgiving landscape, this wildly theatrical dark comedy is full of mystery, humor and surprise. Part Brontë sisters, part Twilight Zone, The Moors ensnares its bold and obsessive characters in an elaborate game to make their mark in the world.

How do you choose the shows you produce during your seasons?

CW: Theatre B is unique in that it is ensemble led. We don’t have an Artistic Director; we have an Artistic Direction committee made up of ensemble members and at least one community representative. They really guide the programming and select the projects we will produce. We read a lot of plays and have a lot of discussion about what issues are currently in the public consciousness. We look for a balance of dramatic and comedic work. We seek out fresh new work and award-winners. We look for plays that we can produce well given our space, resources and talent pool.

The process is not always efficient, but it means that ensemble members really take ownership of their work. Individuals will have certain projects that speak to them artistically, and they will champion them through the selection process, make the case for why a particular project is timely and important and help determine what resources will be necessary for the project to succeed. We find that the strongest seasons are those which have a mixture of projects a few individuals are really excited about, and projects where there is broad consensus in the committee that the project is right for Theatre B and relevant to the community.


THEATRE B

theatreb.org 215 10th St. N, Moorhead

In what ways can people get involved — on stage or off? CW: Theatre B does hold open auditions for most of its shows. We often precast from the ensemble, but it’s rare that an entire play is cast that way. We love to have new talent join us for auditions or for design/technical work. We know that people sometimes feel intimidated; auditions are difficult enough without the added pressure of ensemble members in the mix.

its impact in the community?

CW: Recently, I just asked a couple of ladies what their names were, and when they told me DeDe and Paula, I knew they were from out of town and had been coming to Theatre B for years. I made a point to visit with them after the show, and they shared a story of an earlier experience with Theatre B that kept them coming back again and again. Their story was our mission in action.

Theatre B is always open to volunteers, ushers, builders, painters, costumers, interns and board members. When community conversation and engagement are in your mission statement, you always need a variety of people involved. Different perspectives are what make the work both challenging and accessible.

They had brought a friend to see a play called "Next Fall." The show featured two men who had to hide their relationship because one of the men felt he could not tell his parents he was gay. At first, the friend was uncomfortable and wanted to leave, but they encouraged her to be patient and trust that the play would be good. The central issue in the play is that one of the men ends up in a coma and because his parents don’t know about his relationship, his partner is denied access to him at the hospital. The partner struggles with the dilemma of how to be honest with the family and how to honor his partner’s wishes. Dede and Paula explained that their friend was drawn into the story and by the end, she was crying for the characters and their struggle. She said, “I never thought of it that way before.”

Is there a story you’d like to share about

That’s what we do at Theatre B.

We try to be clear about roles that are open and roles that are not, but we also want directors to have some choice, so occasionally, just by virtue of timing, ensemble members will be at auditions too. It’s not a perfect system, but we are always discussing it, making adjustments and trying to find the balance of keeping the door open to new talent and giving a project’s director some agency in casting.


Fargo-Moorhead

ballet

Fargo-Moorhead Ballet (FMBallet) is a professional dance performance company that presents ballet, jazz, moderns and tap under the artistic direction of Matt Gasper. Recognized nationally for the original choreography and quality artists, Gasper gives us insight into FMBallet and its impact in the community.

Photos by Hillary Ehlen

24 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

q&a How did the FMBallet come to be?

Matt Gasper: When I moved back to the Fargo-Moorhead area from New York, I saw there was a need for a professional ballet company.

What all does the FMBallet offer throughout the year?

MG: We produce three full productions each season. The first is a Halloween themed ballet in October, which includes a community costume contest with a lot of great prizes donated from local businesses. Our traditional December production of The Classic Nutcracker, which we perform alongside the fantastic Wonderland Orchestra. In the spring, we


UPCOMING EVENTS Aladdin April 21 at 2 & 7 p.m. April 22 at 2 p.m. Fargo Theatre 314 Broadway N, Fargo

have our nicknamed “Storybook Ballet.” This April, we’re excited about the regional premiere of "Aladdin" at the Fargo Theatre.

In what ways can people get involved — on stage or off?

MG: The FMBallet is proud to be a feefree program for dancers who are a part of the show. Our production auditions are open to all area dancers and movers ages six to adult. We strongly believe in providing the chance for all dancers to dance alongside our professional company of dancers in these productions. We have many volunteer options for our productions, all you need to do is ask. We are always looking for interested board members.

How do live entertainment options affect a community and the culture?

MG: I think it’s the whole experience that's attractive about live performance. From getting dressed up at home to entering the theater to becoming connected to

FARGO-MOORHEAD BALLET

fmballet.org 524 7th St N, Fargo

those on the stage and being able to experience the performance with them.

What about FMBallet specifically adds to the culture of Fargo-Moorhead? What’s unique about it? MG: It's the only professional ballet company in the area that produces three live performances a season. We are recognized nationally for the artistic attributes, too.

Is there a story you’d like to share about its impact in the community?

MG: This season, we collaborated with Bonanzaville and after our performance, a woman approached me and said this was her and her 80-year-old mother’s Christmas evening out. Neither one of them had ever seen a ballet before. They were so amazed; it brought them to tears. Live performances change people — even if it’s just for a moment. A live dance performance changes you forever.


Fargo-Moorhead

choral artists

Michael Culloton has been the artistic director and conductor of the Fargo-Moorhead Choral Artists (FMCA) for six years. His job is to audition the singers, lead rehearsals and conduct the public performances. Let him tell you more about what an experience with the FMCA looks like. Photos submitted by Fargo-Moorhead Choral Artists

26 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

q&a How did the FMCA come to be?

Michael Culloton: The choir was founded in 1980 as a very small chamber ensemble called the Fargo-Moorhead Chamber Chorale and they focused on early music, such as madrigals. In the last six years, we’ve grown the ensemble to approximately 60 singers and changed our name to the Fargo-Moorhead Choral Artists.

What all does the FMCA offer throughout the year? MC: The Choral Artists present a number of concert weekends throughout the year with a wide variety of music that we are comfortable singing. In fact, last year we


FARGO-MOORHEAD CHORAL ARTISTS fmchoralartists.org

presented a program that included music by Johannes Brahms and Dolly Parton. We also present an annual gala benefit called "A Singing Valentine" and we participate in the Fargo Parks/Minnesota Public Radio Classical Music Festival at Rheault Farm. For the last two years, we’ve presented a free family holiday concert at the downtown Fargo Public Library and we’ll continue to do this as it is an enjoyable and rewarding event for us.

How do you choose the shows you produce during your seasons?

MC: I select the music for our concerts with our singers in mind and our potential audience. We are lucky to sing in a community that enjoys a variety of musical styles.

In what ways can people get involved — on stage or off?

MC: We love meeting singers who want to participate in a choir that unapologetically works hard to achieve musical excellence. Auditions take place each spring for the upcoming season and can be scheduled by emailing me at music@fmchoralartists. org. Auditions are competitive, and experience singing at the collegiate level is almost a requirement since the quality of the singers who walk through the door is so high. We are also looking for community members who want to serve on our board and provide guidance and oversight for the organization. And lastly,

we are always pleased to sing for large audiences, so we invite everybody to come and hear us.

How do live entertainment options affect a community and the culture?

MC: Choirs are particularly special because the instrument is the human voice. We all own our instrument already, and chances are pretty good that at some point in the concert or season, we will ask you to sing along with us. Communities are enriched by arts organizations that can remind us or educate us about cultures from around the world, and we do that on a regular basis. Our first concert this season featured music from 15 countries in eight different languages and our audiences enjoyed the musical journey a great deal.

What about FMCA specifically adds to the culture of Fargo-Moorhead? What’s unique about it?

UPCOMING EVENTS An American Original: Celebrating Leonard Bernstein Saturday, April 28 at 7:30 pm Sunday, April 29 at 2:00 pm Very few musicians have made as large of an impression in the American music scene of the 20th Century as did Leonard Bernstein. The Choral Artists will celebrate the centennial of his birth with a concert featuring his Chichester Psalms and Choruses from The Lark, the latter of which will feature a local actress playing the role of Joan of Ark. They'll also present music from his landmark musical West Side Story, his opera Candide and other gems from this American icon. Gethsemane Episcopal Cathedral 3600 25th St. S, Fargo

MC: We have a lot of great collegiate choirs in our community, so we need to have a choir that allows the singers who graduate and stay in the region to keep fostering their love for the art form. Our musical expectations are high, but I think that the concerts we sing can really impact our audience and make them feel something. We offer our audience the chance to unplug and enjoy humans making choral music together. 27


Fargo-Moorhead

symphony orchestra While symphony concerts have gained a reputation of being boring or stuffy, the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra (FMSO) is proving these outdated beliefs are wrong. Let's learn more about the FMSO with Executive Director Linda Boyd. "Our doors are open to everyone, and each piece of music means something different to each individual," Boyd said. "The experience is yours to define." Photo by Scott Thuen from Thuen Studios

28 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

q&a How did the FMSO come to be?

Linda Boyd: The symphony started as a group of local musicians playing together for fun nearly 100 years ago. In 1931, the group officially incorporated, making the organization 87 years young.

In what ways can people get involved — on stage or off?

LB: If you are in your 20s or 30s, we have a special networking group just for you called Urban Overture. On the Wednesday prior to each Masterworks Series concert, we host an Urban Overture event, where we offer a free wine tasting, appetizers and a short performance featuring guest artists. These events are free for ages

A STORY OF IMPACT

21-39, as we are hoping to introduce more young adults to the excitement the symphony has to offer. As an Urban Overture member, you also get special discounted tickets. You can join us as a guest, or we are always looking for volunteers to help us ensure the event runs smoothly. Aside from Urban Overture, we have volunteer opportunities for people of all ages, from helping with our annual Young Artists Solo Competition to planning the pre-party festivities for Symphony Rocks.

How do live entertainment options affect a community and the culture?

LB: Live performances of all kinds reflect the personality and vibrancy of a community and go a long way toward establishing its identity. Memphis, Seattle, Nashville, Austin, New Orleans and Chicago are all cities that are known, in part, for their signature musical scene and sound. Fargo, on a somewhat smaller scale, has an identity of its own as a place where young entrepreneurs interact with a progressive establishment — which can also describe its rich and varied musical scene.

What about FM Symphony specifically adds to the culture of Fargo-Moorhead? What’s unique about it? LB: Having a top-notch symphony orchestra in the community is kind of like having a six-time national championship football team — it gives people the opportunity to experience breathtaking excellence in performance right before their eyes, over and over. If you have never been to a symphony concert, you might think it would be a stiff and formal, maybe boring or even intimidating experience. Prepare yourself for just the opposite. Fargo is not a stuffy place and neither is its symphony orchestra. An hour before the concert begins, beverage service is offered in the lobby including wine and beer options. An informal talk by conductor Christopher Zimmerman and virtuoso guest artists before the concert is a down-to-earth and entertaining way to get some tips on the music and what to listen for during the concert. The performance itself is a dazzling display of nearly 100 professionals musicians performing exciting masterpieces under the charismatic direction of Maestro "Chris."

"One of our favorite examples of how music and the arts can create meaningful connections and powerful impacts was after our concert last fall, 'Symphony After Dark: Music of the Middle East,'" Linda Boyd said. Dayna Del Val, president and CEO of The Arts Partnership, wrote the following: "Christopher introduced the guest artists, men from Turkey, Macedonia and Syria — parts of the world I have no personal connection to and only know through news coverage. But I can't honestly say that isn’t true anymore. Syrian composer Malek Jandali's talk moved me to tears as he referenced an ancient Syrian melody that could be heard in the centuries-old Jewish temples, Christian churches and Muslim mosques, all on the same streets of Syrian towns, and all now completely destroyed. "But do you know what lives on, beyond the hate and destruction? That melody lives on because he wove it into his stunning piece, 'Variations for Piano and Orchestra.' Somehow, in the midst of absolute destruction, this melody, one that has sustained people through time and tragedy, across the centuries, was played by our symphony, people who live and work in our community. "And for one transcendent evening, I was part of the fabric of those ancient peoples and of the current people of Syria, misplaced and brutalized but clinging to their art when all else is gone. And that is why we must embrace the arts and artists. When all else fails, when all else is wiped away, we are left with the arts to tell our stories."

Based on the 1988 film starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, this high-energy musical caper is a local premiere.

FARGO-MOORHEAD COMMUNITY THEATRE fmct.org 333 4th St. S, Fargo

q&a How did the FMCT come to be?

Eloise Breikjern & Adam Pankow: FMCT was created in 1946 by a group of community members who wanted live theatre available to the larger community — outside of high school or college productions. FMCT productions were held in the Fargo Arena, a church, school auditoriums, the Fargo auditorium, service clubs and Red River Playhouse, a former vaudeville theatre. In 1967, a building was erected in Island Park as a permanent home for FMCT. Over the years, the building has increased its footprint. The latest renovation was the front pavilion, which was built with donations from the Burgum family.

How do you choose the shows you produce during your seasons?

EB & AP: There is no magic formula in

choosing a season. Ultimately, there is a want to schedule a mix of shows that draw a variety of volunteers and patrons to our theatre. The lineup will likely include tried-and-true plays and musicals that are familiar to many, but also new up-andcoming titles that are just now available for amateur groups like high schools, colleges and community groups to produce.

In what ways can people get involved — on stage or off?

EB & AP: Auditions are open to all community members on a volunteer basis. We have individuals audition who have never been on the stage or have not acted since high school. Some of the actors are theatre majors and have extensive experience. They are all welcomed and we're thrilled when they can take one of the roles. Technicians are an integral part of the production process as well and always seem to be in short supply. For individuals interested in working behind the scenes, we can train them on how to run the light or soundboard, shift scenery, help with costumes, hair and makeup or how they can serve as a stage manager. Assistance building sets or constructing costumes is also an ongoing need leading up to performances. For those interested, we offer front of house volunteer opportunities, such as selling concessions, ushering and much more.

How do live entertainment options affect a community and the culture?

EB & AP: Theatre is a shared, reciprocal experience — actors will feed off the audience and the audience feeds off each other. There is an energy inherent in a live theatre performance that is distinct from other entertainment mediums. For example, unlike film, if you come to see a show twice, it will be different each time. Because theatre often reflects the human condition, it can evoke a wide array of responses from individuals or from the larger group. Theatre is very personal in that way. It can make you laugh or cry, but theatre always makes you think.

What about FMCT specifically adds to the culture of Fargo-Moorhead? What’s unique about it?

EB & AP: FMCT has been serving the community for 72 years and that is amazing, as most community theatres do not have this long of a lifespan. This theatre holds great memories for many people; it has grown with the community and we are the only theatre that actively provides opportunities for all community members. Through our performances and educational programming, FMCT strives to be an all-inclusive place that champions art, the artist and the artistic experience.

Is there a story you’d like to share about its impact in the community?

EB & AP: It's our belief that theatre should be available to everyone. Our sensoryfriendly performance in February was an example of FMCT following its mission. We brought up the lighting in the audience, we removed any loud or jarring sounds from the production, created a quiet space for children who needed to take a break and we did not judge if the special needs individual had to move about during the show. Families with special needs children were thrilled that this production was held. FMCT plans to do more sensory-friendly shows in the future. 31

FARGO-MOORHEAD OPERA

opera

Fargo-Moorhead Opera's (FM Opera) David Hamilton has been with the staff of the FM Opera since 1999, serving first as artistic director until moving to general director in 2006. Artistic decisions, fundraising and overseeing the staff all fall under his responsibilities, including being the public face of the company. Through his words, allow your eyes to open up to the world of opera. Photos by Hillary Ehlen and John Borge

q&a How did the FM Opera come to be?

David Hamilton: FM Opera was founded in 1968 by a dedicated group of volunteers who believed that this community deserved to have its own opera company. We are the only professional opera company between Minneapolis and Montana and between Winnipeg and Omaha. Next season, we will celebrate our 50th Anniversary.

What all does the FM Opera offer throughout the year?

DH: We offer a number of fully staged operas, concerts and special events each season. This year, we bring four operas to venues throughout the community. We 32 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


also have concerts at our annual gala and at the Rourke Art Museum. Our Gate City Bank Young Artists annually sing for 6,500 schoolchildren in their schools and at assisted living facilities and for other community events. In addition, each season, we host a series of International Dinners that serve as a fundraising event for us. These dinners feature local chefs preparing food from other countries for our guests to enjoy with wine or beer pairings.

In what ways can people get involved — on stage or off?

DH: We have lots of opportunities for people, both paid and volunteer. Singers are encouraged to audition for the chorus and for solo roles. Those who have a technical background are welcome to explore working on different backstage areas of productions. Volunteer opportunities at performances include ushering, working at the box office and acting as ambassadors for the opera and interacting with the public who attend performances. We also have a great need for a variety of administrative volunteers who can help with everything from marketing to office work. And, anyone who has an interest in serving on the board of directors is encouraged to contact our Board Chair.

What about FM Opera specifically adds to the culture of Fargo-Moorhead? What’s unique about it? DH: Fargo-Moorhead can be proud that it is the smallest metropolitan area in the country to have supported professional opera for nearly 50 years. Opera is all about the beauty of the human voice and the impact that singing combined with drama can have on the soul. And, it’s important to know that the voice can have this power without the need for electronic intervention. There is something special

about the connection that a single human can create with his or her voice alone that can truly move the soul of every audience member — reaching to the core of our beings almost without the need for the intellect.

Is there a story you’d like to share about its impact in the community?

DH: In recent years, we have started to perform opera in more unusual venues in the community such as Rustica Tavern, HoDo Lounge and Flatland Brewery, and people have responded very positively. One couple that attended our production last season of “Speed Dating Tonight!” told us that they had never been to the opera before and might never have tried it on for size if we had not done a performance in one of their favorite local hang-outs (Flatland Brewery). Giving people a variety of ways to enjoy opera and breaking down stereotypes is important to us.

Anything else to add?

DH: FM Opera is a family-friendly live entertainment opportunity. Did you know that student tickets (K-12 and College Rush) are always $5? That’s one of the cheapest tickets for a live performance in town. With our new “North of Normal Chamber Opera” series, adult tickets are also affordable at $20-25. This is another important part of our mission: to make live, local, excellent opera also affordable in our community. We have one family that lives in Chicago and plans their visits to Fargo around opera performance dates. For the price of just one ticket in Chicago, they can bring their entire family to see a production in Fargo. This family loves that they are able to expose their children to the arts and mentioned our productions are just as fantastic as anything they have heard and seen at Chicago Lyric.

UPCOMING EVENTS Speed Dating Tonight! March 18-20 at 7:30 p.m. Featuring the 2018 Gate City Bank Young Artists, this show returns for another season but with all new dates. This hilarious one-act opera introduces you to the stereotypical daters you might expect while speed-dating: the liar, the cheat, the drama queen, the nerd and so on. Some dates will be highly successful while others will fail miserably. Regardless the outcome, you will have a good time eavesdropping to see how they turn out. March 18 & 19 at Rustica Tavern 315 Main Ave, Moorhead March 20 at Theatre B 215 10th St. N, Moorhead Soldier Songs April 6 at 7:30 p.m. April 8 at 2 p.m. Soldier Songs traces the shift in perception of war from the age of six to 66. Follow the lead character through the phases of life from boy to man: playing violent video games as a boy, enlisting and serving in the military, dealing with the real-life horrors of war and becoming a father whose worst fears are realized with the news of the death of his son. Adapted from interviews with veterans of five wars, this opera experience explores the ideas versus the realities of a soldier. This production has adult themes and is not suggested for young children. NDSU Festival Concert Hall 1511 12th Ave. N, Fargo

HEALTH & WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT

tips & tricks

for a healthy winter vacation BY Kylee Seifert

'Tis the season of escaping from the cold, dreary weather of winter turning into spring in the Midwest. That means most people are flying to and from warmer destinations. The last thing you want to happen when you’re traveling is to wind up with a travel bug. Trust me, been there, done that and learned my lesson. Here are eight easy and effective tips for staying healthy while enjoying your vacation.

1

SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP!

While there is so much to do, see, taste, drink and experience when traveling somewhere new, don’t cut into the vital task of snoozing. Avoid getting up early and staying up late. This will only compromise your immune system and wear you out, leaving your body vulnerable to any nastiness that might be floating around. Try for eight hours – or maybe even more when traveling – to ensure your immune system continues to function at 100 percent.

ABOUT KYLEE

2

DEVOTE TIME TO MOVING + STRETCHING!

Shoot to get at least 15 minutes of moving and stretching per day. Maybe a brisk walk, jog, a swim or even visiting the gym wherever you are staying. It doesn’t need to be a long workout, but something quick to get your heart rate elevated will do. Here’s one to do without equipment and anywhere.

Workout: 4 rounds of… • 20 squats • 15 sit-ups • 10 burpees • 5 push-ups • 1-minute plank

Her holistic business is centered around balancing fitness, nutrition and mindset mastery.

3

MODERATION IS KEY!

While you are on vacation and most likely enjoying some adult beverages, keep in mind that moderation is key. You most definitely deserve a few enjoyable drinks while traveling but don’t overdo it. Again, this only puts your immune system at risk and strips you of rejuvenating sleep. Even more so, stay away from drinks loaded with sugar and mixed boozes. Shoot for something light and containing only one type of alcohol. My go-to is a “NorCal Margarita.” (See recipe below.) When it comes to food, try splitting options with your co-travelers and opt for fresh fruits, veggies and salads when possible.

NorCal Recipe: • 3 oz. silver tequila • Juice from one lime • A dash of sea salt • Fill glass with ice • Pour in soda water (NOT TONIC WATER) • Stir and enjoy!

4

PLAY!

Enjoy your time away and try to “check out” and play. Research something fun and different to do in the area. Try to disconnect from electronics and be present in the new locale. Let yourself be goofy and challenge yourself to meet new people and hear their stories.

5

KICK THE INFLAMMATION!

Opt for natural anti-inflammatory aids like ginger tea and essential oils to keep you healthy. These are easy to travel with and work like a charm. I like to bring my own ginger tea and ask for hot water wherever I go. I’ll sip on this and sometimes even add a lemon to help my digestion stay normal. Try ginger, lavender, oregano, peppermint and other anti-inflammatory blends while you’re vacationing to keep your immune system functioning well.

6

HYDRATE LIKE IT’S YOUR JOB.

Too often, we go about our travels and forget to drink water throughout the day. When you’re traveling (especially on an airplane), it’s important to keep hydrated and drink plenty of water to rid your body of any toxins. It’s also a great idea to drink electrolytes throughout the trip. Here’s an easy recipe that you can make anywhere.

Recipe: • 16 oz. Water • 1 tsp. Sea salt • 1-2 tbsp. Stevia or maple syrup • Lemon juice to taste • Lime juice to taste • Mix together and enjoy!

7

PROBIOTICS + VITAMINS.

Probiotics and sticking to your normal vitamin routine is essential when you’re traveling and enjoying your vacation. Keeping your gut happy will keep your body happy and in turn, make for happy memories. Be sure to pack all the vitamins you need for the trip and opt for probiotics before, during and after traveling.

8

PACK HEALTHY SNACKS.

Always pick up some healthy snacks to pack for the trip. This way, if you are in a bind, you have a backup option. Easy snacks include gluten-free granola, seaweed strips, jerky, veggies, dark chocolate, coconut chips and guacamole packs.

lucas buerkley @ Labby's Grill & Bar

1100 19th Ave N, Fargo labbys.com

An Old Fashioned is one of the most-calledfor classic drinks. Sweet and strong, an Old Fashioned never really gets old — especially with bartenders adding their own twist. Bartender Lucas Buerkley from Labby's Grill & Bar shares his Old Fashioned creation.

BY Kara Jeffers PHOTOS BY Hillary Ehlen

42 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Q&A HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BARTENDING?

I've been bartending for about three and a half years and with Labby's the whole time.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT WORKING HERE?

Interacting with the people. Every day is different and you get to meet new customers all of the time — people from different cities, different countries. I love getting to know their stories and communicating with them. It's not your typical desk job where you're sitting in a cubicle and have an agenda to go by. Every day is a different challenge or opportunity. I'm also really close with the regulars. They come in to interact with us because they know us, not because it's just another place to drink.

ARE THERE ANY BARTENDING OR MIXOLOGIST TRENDS YOU'VE BEEN SEEING RECENTLY?

For this area, I'm starting to see more of the craft cocktails. The Fargo-Moorhead area is usually in a big bubble for national trends, in a sense, and it's nothing like being out in New York or somewhere like that. I've had friends who have worked and lived out there and hearing their stories and what they like to drink has gotten me more into learning about craft cocktails. I keep my eye out for it a little more and think it's something we'll start to see get just as big as craft beers have blown up.

TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE DRINK YOU MADE TODAY.

With how I've been paying more attention to the craft cocktail world, I combined a couple recipes together — ones I've stumbled across in bartending books or things I've heard from my friends in bigger cities. With this specific Old Fashioned, I was mixing stuff together, seeing what worked and one day it just came out so smooth. I had all of the other bartenders try it and they loved it so we incorporated that to be Labby's Old Fashioned recipe. We've always had an Old Fashioned here but the recipe is new.

"LABBY'S OLD FASHIONED" • 1/3 oz. Maker's Mark Bourbon • 1/2 oz. simple syrup • 2 dashes of Old Fashioned bitters • 2 dashes of Cherry bitters Pour ingredients into a shaker, add some ice and stir for about 12 seconds. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass and garnish with an orange peel.

My Favorite

universal languages

"How many languages do you speak? Is it hard to learn a new language?" Many questions I have heard from friends and people that were intrigued by the audible experience of my exotic accent.

In a time where media, politics and thought leaders are skeptical and pessimistic about our society, I can only think of the wise words of James Baldwin: “I can't be a pessimist because I'm alive. To be a pessimist means that you have agreed that human life is an academic matter.� One must know today is better than ever and tomorrow is radiant. Technology is rapidly growing, we are e-connected more than ever but foremost our cities are getting richer because of the

increasing cultural diversity. You just must choose wisely what kind and where you get your information on the status of our Mother Earth. How do you embrace this rapid change? How can you navigate smoothly in society? You must equip yourself with versatile societal human tools called: Universal languages. Unlike Kinyarwanda, Spanish, French or English that are spoken in specific regions, universal languages can be used anywhere you go with anyone you meet.

44 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


2. 1. Here are my seven favorite Universal Languages headlined in KinyaRwanda

3.

Guseka (“Smile”)

This human facial reflex is the most elegant, hopeful, inspiring and contagious emotional attire one should always wear. This is the most humanizing act you can use anywhere you go. “If you smile at life, life will smile back at you” is my daily philosophy and practice.

6.

Ikaze iwacu, mulisanga (“Welcome home, feel at home”)

Ndakubona (“I see you”)

This is the simple act of acknowledging someone’s presence whenever entering a room or large gathering. By doing so, you recognize the other person's presence. It is simple, but believe me, it goes a long way, specifically when the person is not the center of attention.

4.

Murakoze cyane (“You have done well”)

Ubuntu (“I am because You are”)

Always being grateful for someone’s service, generosity and mostly when the person’s service is taken for granted. I have seen myself going around at the end of a large community gathering and thanking the band for their melodious act, thanking the staff for their worldclass hospitality or simply thanking someone for an enriching conversation. Being grateful for someone else’s contribution to your wellbeing, in general, is paramount.

5. (“You are Amazing”) Uli Igitangaza

This philosophy is dear to the Bantu people in sub-equatorial Africa. It is the belief that you feel the pain, joy, shame and pride that your fellow neighbor feels, therefore, your human experience is intertwined. To be compassionate to each other in our society is a must otherwise we risk to become desensitized. “I am a man: I hold that nothing human is alien to me.” - Terence Afer

Hospitality without borders, radical inclusivity to the conversation, to your home, to your circles is important because we can get caught in our comfort bubbles forgetting people “stuck” on the outside of our unperceived created bubbles. Always be on the lookout of your diction and body language whenever welcoming someone.

“If humans can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the humans heart than its opposite.” - Nelson Mandela

My mom once told me that you have be the best host possible so that when leaving, your guest says: “I am looking forward to coming back to your home.” Now in our case, we can switch the word “home” with “conversation” or “group of friends”.

This is a firmly held belief that we are wired to love each other rather than fear each other. Whenever encountering someone, if you do or say something out of love — regardless of the act or the word — the other will be more inclined to receive it positively.

7.

Urukundo (“Love”)

Complimenting someone whenever they do something praiseworthy. The validation of someone’s accomplishment or attitude goes a long way. On the surface, it might seem like it was done painlessly but this is the tip of the iceberg of the continued effort culminating in this glorious moment.

These are my seven favorite ways of communicating with people and I hope that you see the difference between Universal/ Human languages (uniting and inclusive) versus National dialects (divisive and exclusive). I want to take this opportunity to thank from the bottom of my heart all the people that make me feel safe, welcomed and supported in the Red River Valley: first respondents, public servants, teachers, mentors, refugees, neighbors, international students, visitors and beloved friends aka my chosen family. Dr. Maya Angelou once said: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 45

he idea of raclette and fondue tend to go hand in hand for most. For some, it stirs up retro and sometimes nostalgic thoughts. It may also remind us of a dining experience that is very interactive and social. A dining experience that revolves around raclette does require a bit of a time investment but maybe we’re all in need of that nowadays. Like many famous food traditions from around the world, raclette is a peasant food concept from long ago. When European alpine cattle herder stopped for the evening, they would place their cow’s milk cheese (raclette) next to the campfire. As the

surface of the cheese melted and caramelized, they would scrape the melted portion onto bread for consumption. The more contemporary version, of course, includes air dried or cured meats, potatoes, cornichons and other various accouterment. The word "raclette" will refer to both the cheese, the machine and the process of serving it. There are a few different methods for racletting. You may choose to purchase a commercial style cheese melting machine. This will melt and caramelize the surface of the cheese so that you may scrape the melted portion onto a plate and serve immediately with meats, vegetables and crusty bread. You may also choose to purchase a tabletop griddle style machine that allows you to melt individual cheese portions on top of the same accompanying items. Or you could simply turn your home oven to broil and quickly melt the cheese on a baking pan before transferring to individual plates. Raclette is traditionally prepared for holiday celebrations, but I’d say go ahead and put out the raclette machine any day of the year. Racletting is great for small or large social gatherings or for simply trying to engage your family in an interactive culinary experience. Raclette is the perfect food experience for kids who are typically unwilling to participate in the cooking experience.

raclette ingredients • Raclette cheese — can be purchased online for approx. $10-14 per pound • Potatoes — any petite variety, pre-cooked • Cocktail onions • Cornichon and/or gherkins • Air dried or cured meats: prosciutto, salami, capicolla, etc. • Various fruits: apples, grapes, etc. • Crusty bread — a simple baguette is best, something with a neutral flavor • Various vegetables may be used as well

Preparation • Cut cheese wheel in half and place flat cut surface directly under the preheated broiler. Once the surface has melted and is slightly caramelized and bubbling, scrape the cheese with the back of a knife onto a plate and serve immediately. The cheese will cool and harden quickly so don’t hesitate to enjoy. • Serve raclette with a dry white or lighter bodied red wine of your choice.

The perfect Downtown Fargo gift idea is making its way across the community, thanks to the Downtown Community Partnership (DCP). Gift cards that can be used at local downtown stores are now available. Read on to learn more about this exciting project. BY Kara Jeffers | PHOTOS BY Hillary Ehlen


WHERE IT ALL BEGAN “The idea for a Downtown Fargo gift card had been discussed in our office for multiple years,” said Kalley Norr, the DCP's Development Coordinator. “We all love the idea because it’s a fun way to promote Downtown and to encourage people to visit local businesses.”

Gift card locations the program and help with the start-up costs. “We were fortunate enough to have amazing support from our sponsors of the card,” Norr said. Sponsors include Great Northern Bicycle Co., Bell State Bank, Kilbourne Group and the Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Visitor's Bureau (F-M CVB).

The previous event coordinator, Nicolette Berge, began to research possible gift card programs in the spring of 2017 and spoke with many other downtowns across the Midwest to see if they had a program.

“We were very excited when we heard the DCP was going to be getting the Downtown Fargo gift cards,” said Danni Riley, Visitor Center Manager with the F-M CVB. “We knew we wanted to find a way to collaborate with them.”

“We narrowed it down to three different programs, surveyed our local businesses to see if there was interest and presented the information at our monthly member meetings in the summer,” Norr said. “We received great feedback from the local businesses and moved forward with a program from EML Payments that ensured 100 percent of earning would be kept Downtown.”

With the DCP trying to find places to sell the gift cards, the F-M CVB came up as an option because of the extended hours and the location for people who may not live downtown. “We also thought it would be a good way to draw in some of the locals who may not have a reason to stop by the Visitor Center,” Riley said. “They can become more aware of what we do.”

The DCP is a nonprofit, so they took the information gathered to organizations and businesses to partner with

WHAT’S NEXT? In addition to the F-M CVB and the DCP, gift cards can now be purchased on the website dowtownfargo.com. “We thought it would be a great idea for people to have the ability to order the cards and have them shipped to them or loved ones,“ Norr said. The DCP is also looking into having other locations sell the card to be more accessible to customers. “This wasn’t just a holiday promotion,” Riley said. “The cards are available all year long and never expire — perfect for upcoming holidays, birthdays and anniversaries.”

New Year, New Co-op Co-op

Lower prices A few months after opening, Prairie Roots realized sales were below their projections, so they did a community survey seeking input and ideas for the store. Hundreds of people responded. "We listened very carefully to that input from our customers and owners and realized that people loved the store, but prices were not as competitive as people hoped they would be," Kaye Kirsch said. "We reviewed our systems and purchasing options, looked at our first months of sales data and 50 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

were able to lower prices on over 600 items throughout the store, as well as introducing a line of Co-op Essentials."

are organic, and some are even local as well." You can notice these items by the "essential" tag they display.

Co-op Essentials Speaking of the Co-op Essentials, Prairie Roots wanted to offer a better value for grocery basics, so they developed a new line of essential items. "These are items like milk, bread, eggs, toilet paper... all the stuff you need to stock your pantry, at a great price, every day," Kirsch said. "Most of these items were available before, but we brought in some new brands and many of these items

Deli Menu "You could eat lunch at the co-op every single day and never run out of new things to try," Kirsch said. "Our hot bar has an awesome new weekly menu. Besides the hot meals, we have soups and a salad bar every day, plus sandwiches, prepped and ready salads and lots of other great options in our Grab ‘n Go cooler. We also have really awesome Kombucha on tap."


The Prairie Roots Food Co-op opened its doors in July and only six months later has already made some big changes. Seeking community member opinions, the co-op took the received feedback and implemented the ideas, releasing them together in a New Year campaign. With General Manager Kaye Kirsch, let's take a look at some of the changes Prairie Roots has made since January. BY Kara Jeffers | PHOTOS BY Hillary Ehlen

"Ends" posted Above the windows by the checkout area are three reasons that the co-op exists. 1. Healthy and local food, fairly priced to support a vibrant economy. 2. A community-owned grocery store that supports a sustainable food system. 3. Education about healthy food and lifestyle choices. "Our grocery store is just the beginning of realizing our cooperative vision for our community and the store is a means to accomplish those ends," Kirsch said.

Owner count New owners can sign up online or at the store and are encouraged to switch the number tiles and take a picture with “their” number. It’s a $300 investment and the co-op has a variety of payment plans starting at $25 — but you only pay it once, not every year. "Prairie Roots is owned by almost 1,900 people in this community, so profits stay local and we set the direction of the food co-op," Kirsch explained. "This is truly our grocery store and being an owner is a great way to show your support for a new


local business, our local food system and the many farmers, ranchers and producers who supply the store." Owners get benefits, too. All the details are in the store or on the website. Board of Directors The board sets the strategic direction for Prairie Roots Food Co-op and is elected by the owners. They have fiscal responsibility for the co-op and employ the General Manager. "They are all volunteers and work incredibly hard, leading committees, attending regular meetings and supporting the co-op in so many ways," Kirsch said. "We want to acknowledge and thank them for their work, and ensure that all our owners know who they are and that our governance system is open and transparent to all our owners." Farmer Profiles "We love our farmers, ranchers and producers and want the co-op to be a place where people can learn about the amazing

people who grow our food, so we’ve added pictures and short profiles of some of our local producers," Kirsch said. The profiles are up around the store and will continue to change and be added over time. Logo The logo has evolved over eight years — since they first had the idea of opening a food co-op to now, with the store in the community. Originally designed by a volunteer in 2011, it was updated in 2013 to simplify it and make the name easier to read. "It was still quite busy though, and difficult to use in different formats, so as part of our rebranding effort this January, we decided to simplify it a bit further but still remain true to the colors and imagery, which reflects our agricultural heritage here in North Dakota and Minnesota and the roots that we have developed in the community," Kirsch said. "The wheat stalk imagery is reflected in our glass wall of wheat, our specially-designed bike stands and all over the store."

Local food mural A primary part of the mission at Prairie Roots is to connect customers with the great local food that is available in the region, so they now feature a big map up to help people think about where food is coming from and how local food plays a role in building a "strong, healthy and resilient" community. "Our new local icon is on the wall in produce, but also on products around the store that are sourced or grown within 150 miles of the co-op," Kirsch said. The designer, Melanie Shelito, is not local, but she is the president of her food co-op in Illinois, which opened just a few months before Prairie Roots. Kirsch added, "She has helped us create a cohesive look and feel to all our marketing and in-store experience, and do a great job at telling the story of why food co-ops are unique in the grocery retail landscape." Owner benefits One new thing for owners in 2018 is a


special 10 percent off purchases at the co-op on the first Tuesday of each month. Launched in February, it was hugely popular with the owners and is predicted to be a favorite benefit going forward.

WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT FOOD CO-OPS?

In addition to this new benefit, owners also enjoy $5 off a $50 purchase once each month, special sales that are just for owners each month, discounts on classes and events at the co-op and 10 percent discounts when they order a case of something. Owners get to vote for their Board of Directors, and when the co-op is profitable, owners get to decide what to do with those profits, and may even receive patronage dividends, based on their utilization of the store. "Most importantly, they get the pride that goes with actually owning a local business," Kirsch said. "One that is dedicated to strengthening our community and building our local food system."

War, Flu

A

mericans joined World War I in April 1917. One year later, peace was found but so was a global flu pandemic never before seen. Communities in the Red River Valley responded with courage, fear and isolation.

A new exhibit opening at the Hjemkomst Center depicts this frightening time in history, specifically within Clay County. Archivist Mark Peihl, Collections Manager Lisa Vedaa and Programming Director Markus Krueger sat down with Fargo Monthly to discuss the exhibit they've been planning for the past two years. 54 | MARCH 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Fear

By Kara Jeffers | Photos submitted by the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County

What's going on? The exhibit displays information from the years 1917 to 1919. "The more we research it, the more we realize it was terrifying," Krueger said. "It's one of the biggest wars in American history. American soldiers were in the fighting for only about six months, so the death toll was really concentrated in the summer and fall of 1918." The Meuse-Argonne Offensive was the greatest American battle of World War I and, at the same time, the biggest influenza pandemic — the Spanish Flu —

was sweeping across the country. "When you look at the number of soldiers who died in Clay County, it's about half and half," Krueger said. "Half are combat deaths overseas and the other half are the flu." With the flu going on currently in the Fargo-Moorhead area, people have been particularly interested in this upcoming exhibit. "The one we have now is obviously nothing compared to the flu back then, but people are curious when they make connections from 100 years ago to today," said Vedaa. 55


One family focused on is the Masterson family from Barnesville. Twin brothers Maurice and Kenneth Masterson both had dangerous jobs in units that saw some of the worst fighting in France. Both were wounded. Both were cited for bravery in battle. In this photo taken in France, Maurice is in front.

"There's a lot of suspense in this exhibit." "There was also a lot of political oppression," Krueger said. "This was not a good time to be a German American and this was an area that was 85 percent immigrant families — many were German, who we were at war with. The government worried which side the Germans and Austrians were going to stand on." Connection between war and flu Along with the terrifying aspects of war, a flu pandemic added to the chaos. While there's still research happening on where the flu began, it is easy to understand how it spread so quickly and dangerously. "The war created the perfect environment for the flu," Krueger said. "Ten thousand soldiers are piled on top of each other in training camps. If one gets the flu, they all get the flu." Also taking into consideration how local illnesses from around the world react when they get in contact with each other may have played into the death count the Spanish Flu caused.

"All these sicknesses get packed together into a training camp, a ship going overseas to France, the trenches — then we bring it back home to America," Krueger said. "What they think happened is the flu started and got people sick but they weren't dying from it, but rather when the soldiers went to Europe, it mutated and became more deadly when it came back to America and spread everywhere." "More than 170 people died from the flu in the Red River Valley, but an estimated one-third of the population got sick," Peihl said. While most people survived, this still caused a lot of economic and social disruption. Cities closed down — schools, businesses and churches — because everyone was at home, sick. "It's difficult for us to imagine what it would've been like — not just the dislocation, but the fear," Peihl said. "Today, we at least have antibiotics to take care of illnesses like pneumonia. The vast number of people who died ended up catching pneumonia, which became the final cause of death. We can do something about that now; they had nothing."


This photo shows the seven Thortvedt sisters. They are the Norwegian farming family from north of Glyndon that is focused on. They also had three brothers, one of whom (Goodwin) fought on the front lines. Several of the sisters left behind writings and diaries so we can see events from different perspectives. Their father Levi also left behind a diary from these years and Goodwin’s letters home from the army are also preserved.

Local ties "The unique thing with local history is you aren't dealing with strangers, you're dealing with your grandma or other people you know," Krueger said. "In this exhibit, we're getting more local than usual. We're using two families, the Mastersons and the Thortvedts, who we happen to know a lot about to be our guides through these years." "We talk a lot about the members of those two families — especially the two soldiers — using quotes from journal entries and letters they wrote back home," Vedaa said. One of the families is a Norwegian farming family and the other is an Irish family in a German town (Barnesville). "There's a lot of suspense in this exhibit," Krueger said. "You're following these people and falling in love with their families, including their thoughts and views on the war." There were more than 1,000 men from Clay County who ultimately served in the military. Many women served as

nurses, whether overseas in the war or at home with the flu, as well. Post-war While there were technological changes during the war, Peihl thinks that above all else, the attitude changed. "People's attitudes about themselves, about their country, about the world — that changed more than anything," he said. "There was a lot of cynicism after the war. It was sold to the American public as a war for democracy and the 'right thing to do,' but many Americans, including Minnesotans, turned back in on themselves, becoming more conservative and not interested in getting involved in world conflict again." "The war took a lot of local farm boys who wouldn't have usually had a chance to travel and took them all over the country and the world," Krueger said. "But you see a lot of disillusionment in their journal entries, and many come out of it saying, 'The war wasn't worth it.' They come back home and never want to leave again."


Barnesville Red Cross nurse Rose Clark served in a field hospital only three miles from the front line in Chateau Thierry, France.

Nassib Shaheen – the first Moorhead man to enlist was Nassib Shaheen. He was born in the Ottoman Empire, one of our enemies in the war, in what is now Lebanon. He was the first Moorhead soldier to die in the war, killed by a German artillery shell. He is buried in an American military cemetery in France.

"The soldiers and nurses who served, their experience should be remembered and honored."

Kid-friendly While geared toward adults, it's not a worry that children won't enjoy the exhibit, too. "We definitely have to keep kids in mind when we do our exhibits because we have a lot of school tours," Vedaa said. "Things kids like, adults like, too," Krueger said. "One example is we're going to make a full-size reproduction of a trench. That's something my nephew and I would both enjoy. We'll also have things to pick up and touch as well as many big pictures and short bursts of text." "Plus, with the tours, it's almost like someone is telling them a story rather than them having to read each portion," Vedaa said. "Children usually feel very involved." Why see this exhibit? "We don't think too often about this war as it's not in our American memory as much as others, but it's important," Krueger said. "The soldiers and nurses who served, their experience should be remembered and honored. This is your opportunity to see an exhibit where you're immersed in an experience of what people really thought and felt during the war and the flu pandemic. Because we're focusing on families and

local ties, you see how attitudes evolve as people take in what happened and move into isolation." Peihl thinks it's a "cautionary tale," too. "There was a lot of suppression of civil liberties during World War I, especially with German immigrants," he said. "The war was sold as something noble and right but it unleashed some pretty ugly attitudes and ideas. When you have that sense of righteousness within you, you can take it to some pretty horrible extremes, and they did all over the country, including Clay County." Head over to the Hjemkomst Center to discover more about this exhibit and local history.

Elise Citrowske "Hey, there. My name is Elise, and I love all things pretty. Ever since I was a young girl, I've been making things. As an artist of many mediums, I focus my attention towards creating things that bring light and life into people's lives. Each piece of jewelry, distressed or reconstructed clothing piece, fabric tapestry, etc. are created with the intent to simply enjoy creating something. When making jewelry, I use anything that shines (I absolutely love glitter — so much that over a month ago, my friends threw me a glitter-themed birthday party), mixed metals, soft pastels and anything that creates movement. I thoroughly enjoy my inner creative world, and I like to think of the pieces that I make as souvenirs of a beautiful place I enjoy. As cheesy as it sounds, each piece is a piece of Elise."

Fierce earrings "Earrings are my FAV! The more variety, the better."

Crystal necklace "Keepin' it simple/extra since 1993."

Charm bracelet "Also, the secret's out ... I love charms!"

Simple Sweetheart Necklace "I love mixing different colored metals along with sparkles ... always sparkles."

"This fabric tapestry was created for the North Dakota tent at an event (Awaken The Dawn) on the Washington, D.C. National Mall. These beasts are the most time-consuming thing I create, but boy do I love making them! Each piece of fabric represents something unique and important." PHOTO BY Hope Hagerty
