FROMTHEEDITORS

I was a sophomore and it led me to a lot of introspective thinking. What did I really want to get out of life after college? While I have the utmost respect for teachers everywhere, I didn't think it was for me in the long run.

I

n May of 2012, my parents drove myself and a car full of my belongings from Alabama all the way up to midtown Manhattan in New York City for me to embark on my college journey. I was all the things you'd expect an 18-year-old moving to "the big city" was. I was eager to make friends with EVERYONE, I wanted to eat Shake Shack beneath the shade of skyscrapers in Madison Square Park, I wanted to take the subway to Coney Island and back and I wanted to walk down Broadway at midnight. And I did all of these things, completely immersed in the whirlwind that was New York City. The only problem was that my attention was not on college whatsoever. I wasn't a good fit for the school I was at and my major wasn't what I thought it was going to be. To say that I wasn't doing well would be an understatement. I became convinced that academia wasn't for me and that I should just drop out and "make it work" as a creative something-or-another. My mom wasn't on board with this plan to "figure it out" and, with her help, we found a new school for me to attend: Stephens College. Stephens is a small, liberal arts women's college in Columbia, Missouri. I'd never dreamed of going to an allgirls school and I certainly wasn't ready to leave The Big Apple to go to *cue record

scratch* Missouri. But almost immediately, I thrived. I began pursuing a major in Fashion Communication and taking classes that interested me. I was engaged in my classes, I found sisterhood like I had never experienced before and I finished my first semester with a 4.0 GPA, something I'd never dreamed of accomplishing before. I never thought I was much of a writer, but I had teachers who encouraged me and gave me resources and opportunities to succeed. And now here I am. Believe it or not, I'm not telling you this to brag about my blossoming. I'm telling you this to emphasize the importance of the environment you learn in. I went from feeling hopeless and dumb to becoming a student who won awards, all thanks to a change of environment. No matter if you are a Bison, a Dragon or a Star (go Stephen's Stars!), find an environment you thrive in. Lucky for you Fargo students, this community has its arms wide open to you and is more than willing to help you grow along the way. Until Next Month, Alexandra Martin

I

came to further my education in FargoMoorhead for a few reasons.

One, I wanted to be far away from my hometown. As much as that hurts my mother and those kind folks in Bismarck, it was true. I needed a break from it and was ready to be fully independent. Another reason was the school I was attending. My final two college choices were the University of Mary in Bismarck and Minnesota State University Moorhead. Obviously, I chose to be a Dragon. MSUM had a sort of culture and friendly atmosphere that was attractive to me. The above photo is me in April of 2012, almost a month before I graduated from high school. The person you see above was destined to become a social studies teacher thanks to some tremendous instructors at Century High School in Bismarck. MSUM is renowned for its education program which was another reason to go to school there. And now, here I am in September of 2019. I am not a social studies teacher (although I do hold a minor in history). Instead, I am a magazine editor. So, what happened? Without boring you too much, my dad passed away when

Spring semester began the day of my dad's funeral. I was back on campus a day later, my first class was English 288 - Intro To Creative Writing with Kevin Zepper. I took it for a general requirement, but within a week of being in class, I knew this was what I wanted. Never in my life had I been so sure of something. I poured out a lot of things throughout that semester and it was extremely therapeutic. I changed my major to English and Mass Communications during that spring. The rest is history. Throughout this change and beyond, MSUM was there for me, helping me every step of the way. This is why I continue to be a champion for the university whenever I can be. I cannot thank MSUM enough for that and I would be remiss not to mention those professors who guided me to where I am now. So, thank you Kevin Zepper, Dr. Stephen Hamrick and Dr. Thom Tammaro for pushing me to be the best. I still look back on your tutelage and lessons to this day. I'll never be able to repay that debt to you, but I hope I've done right by your teachings. Cheers To Those Professors Who Change Lives Each Day, Nolan Schmidt

This month, we took a step into the past and looked at area homes that have been around for quite some time. We trodded on original hardwood and turned the brass doorknobs into these historic homes to see how their current owners have embraced and updated them. Come with us as we celebrate the rich architectural history that Fargo has to offer.

Manufacturing in North Dakota accounts for about six percent of the workforce and is responsible for almost $1.4 billion in annual wages. We'll take a look at the impact the industry is having on the state by looking at three companies and taking a holistic look at the industry.

With new coaches and faces up and down the NDSU football roster, it's safe to say there are questions. Will the Bison continue to dominate the gridiron? How will these new faces factor into 2019 and the future of this program? In our yearly football preview issue, let us answer those questions. The Bison way will never change regardless of who has come and gone. NDSU football is back and there is no reason to believe anything will change in 2019.

At seemed to be written in the time, he was an agriculture the stars.

Because out on the ranch when it was calving season, it happened all the “My grandparents lived on their ranch time,” he said. “I looked into how I can and we had quite a few cows and get to that point and it included medical horses. We had a CTE portion of my high school. My advisor told me to talk to the school where you could take agriculture animal science department.” electives,” Schwalbe said. “That was something I excelled in, so going to NDSU That led Schwalbe to the renowned animal for agricultural education made sense.” science department on North Dakota State’s campus. Ultimately, he switched Throughout his prep school years, his major from agriculture education to Schwalbe was heavily involved in the biomedical animal science with a focus agriculture community in Beulah and on animal reproduction. Schwalbe is across North Dakota. He was an active keeping his options open as far as his member of the Future Farmer’s of America future education but would like to obtain organization and was even elected North a Master’s degree in animal science and Dakota FFA President his senior year possibly go to medical school after that. of high school. That led to a very busy freshman year at NDSU for Schwalbe. Schwalbe has excelled in academics and has big plans for his future. Yet, he has “When I was in high school I was really succeeded while still being involved in involved in FFA.

He told himself he wanted to do that once he stepped onto campus. Up until

this season, he has donned the yellow suit and has led North Dakota State’s student section at various athletic events. Wanting to get involved on campus takes a special type of person. For Schwalbe, he knew getting heavily involved at North Dakota State would only help him and the campus community. “The foundation of being so involved came from when I was in Beulah. I was super involved there and I saw what a small amount will have and the impact it will have on our community. I continue to see that in the servant leadership positions that I’ve held,” he said. “When I came to NDSU, I realized that it doesn’t take a lot of effort to make a big change. Finding a bunch of people who feel the same way is really what can make the world turn in a lot of different senses. I’ve always been the person who wants to be out there.” Schwalbe continues stating that getting involved is the only way to make a true change. “If you want to make a change on campus, this is the way to do it,” he said. “The sense of satisfaction that something has happened, that I have even made a small impact around campus or in Fargo. The unity and the ability to make a change is great.” Fargo-Moorhead has become home for Alfred Schwalbe. Oddly enough, it is the people of Fargo-Moorhead that have charmed Schwalbe so much. He feels the sense of community in our area. “Honestly, I just love the people and when people come together. Fargo-Moorhead has incredible support behind NDSU and they all support each other,” he said. “That’s very important to me and it feels like a community here, especially coming from a small school.” He may have come from a small school on the Western side of North Dakota, but Alfred Schwalbe has made a big impact on North Dakota State and FargoMoorhead. With his willingness to fight for change and motivation to get involved, he is a dazzling example of what college students in our area are capable of. However, whatever he does here in FargoMoorhead will pale in comparison to what he does in the future for the animal science field.

CONCORDIA COLLEGE

t’s safe to say that most students in college attend in hope of finding a meaningful career postgraduation. For many of these students, internships while in college pave the visions for their futures. Communication Studies Junior Micayla Bitz of Concordia College particularly knows this to be true.

Micayla Bitz spent this past summer interning at Lutheran Social Services (LSS) on their community engagement team. While interning there, she immersed herself in public policy work, doing projects like making profiles for each legislative district and analyzing data. In a sea of nonprofits and incredible organizations, Bitz was drawn to interning at Lutheran Social Services from yet another internship she completed. In the summer of 2018, she interned at the congressional office of Senator Heidi Heitkamp in Bismark. “I had gone to a few refugee resettlement meetings and I just thought it was really cool what [Lutheran Social Services] was doing. It was something I wanted to be part of,” she said about her introduction to Lutheran Social Services while in Bismark. While Lutheran Social Services were on her radar and she was interested in the work they were doing, it was Concordia’s online internship database that helped her get connected with the organization. Aso integral in her decision to apply for the internship was a special scholarship available to Concordia students. Interning

at a nonprofit is something many Concordia students find themselves interested in, but with many of these internship opportunities being unpaid, there’s a barrier. Lucky for these Concordia students, Bitz included, there is the Swendseid Service Scholars Award.

Thanks to donor Solveig Swendseid (‘50), Concordia students can apply for the Swendseid Service Scholars Award, which funds students internships at nonprofits. Bitz was a recipient of this award for the summer of 2019. “[Swendseid] really cared about nonprofit work, so she donated money so that we can get paid to work for a nonprofit in the summer. I wouldn’t have been able to afford to stay in Fargo [for the summer] otherwise,” said Bitz. After a summer of learning and hard work, Lutheran Social Services wasn’t ready to let go of Bitz just yet. “I had a few unfinished projects so they did some negotiating and brought me on. My title is now ‘Fundraising Assistant’ for the community engagement team,” she said. The main thing Bitz will continue with is writing a special book in celebration for the organization’s centennial. “It’s been so fun to be in that work environment. Where you all know you’re working to put good in the world and everyone’s really excited about it,” she said.

Fargo-Moorhead in general. She noted that she has seen a lot of pride in the Fargo community and that she enjoys being in a community that people are proud to live in. “A lot of people here have big goals and big dreams and that’s just a cool atmosphere to be around,” she said. What’s next for Bitz? This question of “What do you want to do after college?” is always dreaded by 20-year-olds across the nation. But thanks to her summer experiences, Bitz isn’t so in the dark. “After working for Lutheran Social Services, its really cleared up the direction of where I want to go,” said Bitz. “I think a broad description would be that I want to put good into the world and to do good things.” Bitz is a walking example of how important internships are and how the right internship can really help a student decide what they want their future to look like. During her time at Concordia, Bitz has discovered her passions. “I think they are really good about pushing their students to be the best they can be and to keep reaching,” said Bitz. “That mentality where everyone is trying to be the best they can be has really pushed me to grow as a person and a student.” While the “Overinvolved Cobber” is a jestful stereotype amongst the student population at Concordia, it’s something that sets Concordia’s students apart. This culture of engagement and community involvement is something Bitz has found encouraging and has helped shape her college experience. It’s hard to say if Bitz qualifies as an “Overinvolved Cobber,” but she certainly is making her mark on the community and will be an example to future students.

What Bitz liked about Lutheran Social Services is similar to what she likes about

Despite on a surface level. He is a great runner, the shake-up in major, Yusuf immediately yes, but he is far more than that to the fell in love with MSUM and the people who Fargo-Moorhead community and MSUM. make the campus what it is. Yusuf and his family immigrated to the United States from Somalia 13 years ago. While their original destination was Virginia, the family moved to Wilmar, Minnesota, shortly after arriving in America. “Our original destination was Roanoke, Virginia. My mom ended up getting in touch with some of my aunts who lived in Downtown Wilmar so then we came by coach bus,” he said. “We were just wearing shorts and short sleeve shirts and all of a sudden we get off the bus and it’s white, snowy and cold. It was a huge shock.” While in Wilmar, Yusuf became one of the top distance runners in the state of Minnesota. By the time he graduated, he was a four-time state qualifier, four-time all-conference and two-time all-state. That caught the eye of the coaching staff in Moorhead and they wanted Yusuf to become a Dragon. However, there were more reasons than just running that brought Yusuf to MSUM. Having come to the United States not knowing any English, he wanted to help immigrants in the school system.

“The faculty members are so great and the coaches and the administration all want the best for the students. If you know one person, that person will connect you to another person and get you involved somewhere else on campus,” he said. “It’s all about guiding students and helping them where they want to go.” Yusuf has become very connected at MSUM’s as his time on campus has gone along. Not only is he a studentathlete, but he also is the President of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. This committee volunteers throughout the community, holds professional development events and much more for MSUM student-athletes. For Yusuf, it’s being able to see change take place that is most rewarding about being the President of SAAC. He also aids in the Dragon GO! Team. This in-house marketing and production team promotes all things Dragon athletics. From broadcasting games to in-game events, GO! Team does it all. Yusuf is a Dragon Ambassador as well. The Dragon Ambassador is one of the most important points of contact for incoming and prospective students. They

give tours, help with class selection, introduce students to faculty and staff and more. Yusuf takes a tremendous amount of pride in this task. He knows he is the first MSUM representative for many students and must represent the school well. “The moment a student comes on campus, I’m the first face that they see. Before they get to their faculty meeting or their admissions representative, I’m that first resource that they get to see and interact with,” he said. “It’s really nice being that first face, showing students around and sharing my experience.” Yusuf also joined the Dragon Leadership Program. This organization provides students the opportunity to develop and practice leadership skills in several different settings. Students graduate from the Dragon Leadership Program after multiple years in the organization. So how does Yusuf do all of this? Being a student is a full-time job, add to that being a student-athlete which is also a full-time job. Yusuf is grateful for those fellow leaders on MSUM’s campus that can step in for him if he needs the assistance or cannot make an event. Yet, he tries to do everything he can within the parameters of his schedule. When asked why he enjoys FargoMoorhead so much, Yusuf shares the sentiments of many. It’s the people. “Everybody is very welcoming whether it’s holding the door for someone at Walmart or ALDI, they’ll say thank you and someone will hold the door open for me,” he said. “You can go to a big town like the Twin Cities, you’re going to walk past people and not make eye contact, smile or say hi. This community is very small and close-knit and are able to communicate with you. It’s a community that will keep on growing forever.” Sure, Nadir Yusuf’s running accomplishments at MSUM are impressive. Those marks do not tell the entire story, though. Beyond what he does on the track, he is making an immediate impact on future generations of Dragons as well as our community at large.

Our Response: Fargo-Moorhead is always

growing and our population has grown every year since 1992. That, coupled with several other factors have actually led to a boom of restaurants in the metro. In fact, Fargo-Moorhead has a high restaurant to people per capita compared to metros of similar size and population.

HOPE FROM NDSU GRIPES:

FARGO-MOORHEAD NEEDS MORE RESTAURANTS...

There seems to be a misnomer that Fargo-Moorhead does not have enough restaurants. In actuality, the metro has had an influx of new places open over the last year or more. This summer has seen plenty of new establishments open. Here are just a few new spots in town to eat. Never be afraid to step outside your comfort zone for food either. You are only limiting your options by doing so. A&E Liberian Restaurant 524 N Broadway

BECCA FROM M STATE GRIPES: Our Response: First off, check out

the “Things To Do Under 21” guide in this issue to aid you in your quest for entertainment. Secondly, there is no shortage of things to when you’re in that dreaded “grey” area of 18 to 21 years old. Most restaurant/bars in Fargo-Moorhead serve those under 21 until certain times (usually 8 or 9 p.m.). Also, most breweries allow minors in until a certain time as well. So, if you have friends that are of age and you are not, there are still opportunities to enjoy company in what are traditionally deemed “21+ establishments”. My pro tip: Never underestimate The Bowler. Monday-Thursday after 9 p.m., college students bowl free with a valid student ID. I had many good times bowling with friends when I was under 21 and it’s FREE. Take advantage of free entertainment, people.

Fargo Classroom They come from farms, tiny towns and Twin Cities suburbs. By Deneen Gilmour Deneen Gilmour is a journalism professor at MSUM, teaching media writing, reporting and digital storytelling courses. Gilmour worked as a daily newspaper reporter for 16 years before earning a master’s in 2005 and Ph.D. in 2007 at NDSU. She and her husband, Jim, live in north Fargo where they’re raising 16- and 17-year-old daughters. Their 27-year-old son is a national reporter for McClatchy Media in San Francisco

They come to Fargo-Moorhead to earn a degree and launch their adult lives. “They” are the 25,000 students at F-M’s colleges and universities. If you ask — as I do at the start of each semester — why students choose Fargo-Moorhead, almost none say they come seeking fame or fortune, or to put down roots here. Their wants are simple: Learn enough to land a job that’ll let them enjoy a life about like mom and dad or grandma and grandpa. During first-day introductions, I ask students to list the following: -What do you want to be when you “grow up?” -What’s your major? -Where are you from and where do you want to go? Rare is the student who aspires to fame, a glitzy gig or a six-figure salary.

They simply hope for the best job they can find wherever that may land them. Most say they chose Fargo-Moorhead because they found the major they wanted and relatively affordable tuition. Most are pragmatic and willing to go wherever the first job happens to be. Life goals tend to be down-to-earth desires like staying within driving distance of family, fishing and hunting spots and summer lake life. I’ve been teaching at North Dakota State or Minnesota State University Moorhead since 2003 when I was a Forum senior reporter and NDSU asked me to teach a journalism course. A year later, I became an NDSU graduate student and traded a willingness to teach for my tuition bill. With Ph.D. in hand in 2008, I became a professor at MSUM’s School of Communication and Journalism. Meeting and getting to know students has been the greatest pleasure of my 16 years as a college educator, much like meeting all kinds of people is the best part of being a journalist. Some students leave an indelible mark


on a professor. Some have done that, while also leaving a significant mark on their community, too. These young professionals are all beneficiaries of F-M’s economic boom, allowing them to land a job close to home and build a life in a booming metro area. But we all are beneficiaries of these students – our region’s young people – who no longer have to head to the coasts or Twin Cities to begin a career. It is we, not they, who are the ultimate winners because these young people have big hearts, great minds and a desire to make their community and their world a better place. We are lucky to have them here rather than in Brooklyn, Minneapolis or Silicon Valley. Roots Planted A generational shift has occurred, keeping more students closer to where they grew up. In the 1980s and ‘90s, parents bemoaned the fact their kids couldn’t find jobs here after they graduated from NDSU, MSUM or Concordia. It was common to hear parents and government leaders complain that our educated youth were our chief economic export. With fresh diplomas in hand, grads had to move to the Twin Cities, East or West coast to find their first career-type job. More and more lately, F-M’s university

grads can land their first career job here. That’s thanks to a nearly twodecade economic expansion in the Fargo-Moorhead region. Three key factors underpin the expansion. 1. Economic diversification: As always, ag is prime. Now tech, ed, medicine and energy diversify the metro economy. Remember, Fargo is home to one of Microsoft’s largest corporate campuses, with more than 1,000 jobs; plus Sanford Health recently built an 11-story Fargo hospital that employs 1,500 people at peak times; and oil boom money rolls right through the metro economy. 2. Economic resiliency: Fargo’s economic indicators outshone even those of the Twin Cities during the recession that began in 2008-09, according to a July MinnPost story on F-M’s booming economy. 3. Jobs for all: A low unemployment rate in the early 2000s provided jobs for anybody who wanted one and led to more of those jobs becoming career-building type jobs. The F-M metro area’s unemployment rate was a miniscule 2.1 % in May, according to Job Service ND. In fact, 80 percent of NDSU students now stay in the Fargo-Moorhead region after graduation, according to a recent study by NDSU. That’s a huge generational change, one we are thankful for.

ndrew Christopher was sold on Minnesota State University Moorhead when he took his first tour of the school. His parents, Travis and Jennifer, were sold on the university long before that. MSUM’s solid reputation in the community and proximity to home were key selling points. Andrew is a sophomore communication studies major at MSUM. He’s active on campus and works at the bookstore. His father, Travis, is the director of donor fulfillment for Dakota Medical Foundation and Giving Hearts Day and his mother, Jennifer, is a paraprofessional for Fargo Public Schools. Read about three of the reasons Andrew and his parents knew MSUM was the right fit:

1. We felt a connection on campus Even though he went to high school in the Fargo-Moorhead area, Andrew learned a lot from his tour of MSUM. It was an opportunity to explore academic offerings, experience the campus culture, and meet other students and professors. “When I toured here I felt a connection. I thought everyone was friendly and it’s not a big school so I learned that class sizes are pretty decent as well,” Andrew said. It was during MSUM’s Preview Day that the entire Christopher family decided MSUM was the right fit. Travis and Jennifer toured the campus for the first time and witnessed their son’s immediate connection. “We came for Preview Day and he got to talking to one of the professors. They had a bond immediately, and they talked for 20 minutes about business and sports and other things,” Jennifer said.

2. Professors care about their students

place sold me,” Andrew said. Personal attention from the entire campus community – faculty, staff and students – is what makes MSUM a special place. “The faculty and the students are all willing to help. I think that’s been the most impactful thing about MSUM—the people,” he said. “It’s so nice to have the mentorship and guidance and even making friends with people on your dorm floor. All of that eases anxiety and nervousness. It feels like you’re a part of a family; the Dragon family.”

3. MSUM is involved in the community Given the nature of his work, Travis had connected with several MSUM alumni and leaders. He was impressed with MSUM’s level of involvement in the FargoMoorhead community. “Even before we talked about MSUM for Andrew, I saw faculty in my daily job. I got to know President Blackhurst, and she’s so community-minded that she’s out there all the time,” Travis said. “So, by the time we had to make a decision it was easy because I had a chance to meet some of the leadership. They’re out in the community preaching the good word about the Dragons. I knew I could send my son here for four years and not worry about him.” Travis and Jennifer couldn’t be more pleased with Andrew’s college decision. MSUM gives them peace of mind about several things. “MSUM does what they say, and that’s to provide a high-quality edcation,” Travis said. “And frankly, it’s great for families. I would recommend MSUM to anyone.” Andrew credits his parents for helping him make his college decision. “My parents are wonderful people, and they’ve raised me to be the gentleman I am today,” Andrew said. “They’ve been very supportive of my decision to come to MSUM, and I think it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

“I can tell the professors care about their students and that’s another reason this

mily Groth was determined to find a school that was known for graphic design. She had been interested in design since her high school years at Fargo Davies. Her parents, Donn and Michelle, are both proud Minnesota State University Moorhead alumni; they were also committed to helping Emily find the school and program that was right for her. While she looked at other, bigger schools in North Dakota and Minnesota, the program at MSUM piqued her interest.

and how it ranked nationally was really important,” he said. “There is a great education that comes out of this school.”

Emily is a senior graphic communications major at MSUM. She also runs her own business, Studio 1318, where she makes and sells macramé. Donn is a senior marketing consultant for Midwest Communications, and Michelle is an operations manager at Bell Bank.

“I think she found out when she started looking at other schools and comparable programs the cost to go to school,” Donn said. “That was one of the big things.”

These three factors helped Emily and her parents decide on MSUM.

1. Opportunities in the classroom “I always wanted to go into graphic design and MSUM has a graphic communications major. I was very excited because it is more multimedia-based, which is what I’m interested in,” Emily said about what made her decide on MSUM. And, when she found out about the class sizes at MSUM, Emily felt comfortable. “The bigger programs at some of the schools I was looking at, the class size was going to be much larger than what I was used to,” Emily said. “Getting here, my major courses are smaller. It’s really nice getting more of a one-on-one connection with professors.” Donn, a seasoned marketing and communications professional, added: “The program she wanted to go into

2. An affordable education College is a big investment for families and getting the most value was another key factor in Emily’s decision to attend MSUM. Once she knew MSUM had the program she was looking for, she began comparing other factors. She found another advantage MSUM had over the rest of the competition — it offered greater value.

3. Being a part of the Dragon family Donn and Michelle are both still involved in the university. “We still have a lot of connections and a lot of lifelong friends from our time here,” Donn noted. “We both knew the campus and the size would fit Emily well,” added Michelle. “Culture and community are at the forefront of MSUM’s mission.” It was that familiarity that gave Donn and Michelle peace of mind when sending Emily off to school. Those are some of Emily’s favorite things about being a Dragon, too. “One thing I love about it is that you really feel your professors know you and care about your well-being,” Emily said. “You’re not just a number to them and I really appreciate that.”

Fargo-Moorhead’s culinary couple, Eric and Sara Watson, take their industry know-how to Urban 42 and the Delta By Marriott in Fargo.


any readers of this publication know Eric and Sara Watson. They are, in the purest sense, the culinary family of FargoMoorhead. Once owners of Mezzaluna, they opted to pass along the downtown staple to their general manager and head chef (who happens to contribute to Fargo Monthly). Then, they shifted their focus to Rustica Eatery and Tavern, a restaurant they owned simultaneously with Mezzaluna. The Watsons turned Rustica into one of the finest eating establishments in the region. In July, the Watson duo sold Rustica to members of their team. Throughout this culinary journey, they have passed along their knowledge of the industry to the next generation of restaurateurs. Truly, we may not know the impact the Watsons have had on the Fargo-Moorhead restaurant business. However, one mainstay of the Watson culinary empire has been their catering company,

Mosaic Catering. In recent months, the couple has taken on an entirely new venture in their journey. Upon selling Rustica, they partnered with the Delta By Marriott hotel on 42nd Street in Fargo. In turn, they began taking on event catering and assisting the sales team with event planning for the hotel. They will also operate and manage Urban 42, the restaurant located inside the hotel. Eric is the Executive Chef while Sara is the Food & Beverage Director. Mosaic now has a new home inside the Delta By Marriott now operating as Mosaic Catering by Delta Marriott, opening a new chapter in the lives of Eric and Sara Watson. Rather than prepping for an evening of dinner service, they are preparing for large scale events held in one of the Delta’s many event and conference rooms. Instead of concerning themselves with the number of diners inhabiting their restaurant on a daily basis, they are

They service everything from weddings to business conferences. The Delta’s Crystal Ballroom is one of the premier locations in the Midwest to host various events. Now, if you choose to hold your event in the Crystal Ballroom, the Watsons will be catering. Coupled with the incredible hospitality by the Delta, you have a winning partnership for your next event. They will also offer offsite catering too. That is not to say that the Watsons have gone away from the restaurant side of things either. Their venture into Urban 42, a beautiful space inside the hotel has provided Eric the ability to flex his culinary muscles. For those who know Eric’s cooking ability, you know it is quite vast and unafraid to take risks. Urban 42 offers a breakfast, lunch and dinner

menu as well as a Sunday brunch menu. What you’ll find on Eric’s new menu is an eclectic grouping of foods. From walleye hash for breakfast to a club croissant sandwich for lunch or some bacon-wrapped bison meatloaf for dinner, there are dishes touching each sector of your palate. It’s certainly a new avenue in some ways for Eric and Sara Watson. Yet, it is not a major departure from what they’re used to. They’re still catering the biggest events in town inside the Delta, but they are also serving their own style of food at events and inside Urban 42. Truthfully, our area would be satisfied with just one of those facets from the Watsons, but yet they continue to give us more. We’ll gladly accept more, Eric and Sara, but not without giving thanks first.

ach year, more than 16,000 college students make their academic home in Fargo, be they a North Dakota State University Bison, a North Dakota State College of Science Wildcat or others. It is not only Fargo-based students deciding to continue their education locally. In the fall of 2018, nearly 60 percent of students enrolled at NDSU came from out-of-state. With extensive educational opportunities and myriad career paths from which to choose, it is not surprising that so many students, local or otherwise, choose to enroll in Fargo-based universities and colleges. Determining which school to attend is certainly an important decision for any future student. Prospective undergraduates agonize over what degree to pursue, what to expect about life on a university campus and how the next few years could shape their life. What some may not realize is Fargo makes a great home not only for current local students but also for recent graduates of

Fargo area schools as well as those graduating from regional colleges, universities and other schools. Fargo is a young, vibrant community with a median age of 30.2 years, according to the United States Census Bureau. Fargo’s median age is seven years younger than the national median. In fact, the Census Bureau reports that more than a quarter of

Fargo’s residents are in their 20s, compared to less than 14 percent nationwide. Not only is Fargo young, but it is also growing. Since 2010, the City’s population has seen an increase of nearly 20,000. Students who fell in love with the Fargo metro, in part, fueled this growth. The state instituted the Main Street ND Initiative in 2018 with the purpose of creating


Many students come to our City as visitors and we work every day to encourage them to call Fargo home. 21st-century cities with vibrant cores that will help attract and retain talent. That means walkable neighborhoods, mixed-use real estate and the renovation of historic buildings to appeal to a younger demographic. “Many students come to our city as visitors and we work every day to encourage them to call Fargo home. This is an extremely attractive community for anyone to call home, especially students and recent graduates. Fargo is ‘it!’ We have the buzz as the Midwest’s best up and coming city,” remarked Fargo Mayor Dr. Tim Mahoney. Reviews.org, a website specializing in ranking products and services, named Fargo a top 10 U.S. City for Millennials to Relocate based on unemployment rates, housing costs and crime rates. Additionally, Fargo was recognized by Livability.com as one of the 10 Best Places to Get a Fresh Start and the 5th Best Place to Start a Business due to its strong economy, safety, the culture of growth, affordable cost of living and a booming, thriving

startup scene. The site also called Fargo “surprisingly cool” with a “hale and hardy economy.” How do recent graduates weigh the decision to live in Fargo or any city for that matter? According to a study from the American Institute for Economic Research, economic conditions are an important aspect in a young person’s decision but so too are quality of life considerations. Those factors range from public safety to the arts and culture of a community and to the services one can expect from their home city, such as public transportation options. The same American Institute for Economic Research study shows another important factor in a graduate’s postcollegiate living decision is choosing places with large young and educated populations. In this sense, Fargo’s higher education and the greater community operate in a synergetic manner. Institutions of higher education cultivate a more educated population, which in turn creates a more attractive home for recent graduates. This relationship can lead to incredible partnerships occurring every day in this community. Fargo was recently named one of the best-run cities in the country, ranking sixth among all U.S. large cities in “Quality of Services,” according to research website Wallethub. This commitment

to excellence certainly differentiates the Fargo advantage. Fargo ranked higher than all of its regional peers and was one of only a few Midwest cities included in this prestigious designation. Residents have come to expect world-class utilities, amenities and City staff members when they choose to live in Fargo. Wallethub also earlier this year named Fargo the 6th Happiest City in America, with key indicators including incomegrowth, average leisure time, sports participation and the unemployment rate. Of course, one of the greatest motivators for students seeking degrees is launching their career following graduation. Major employers from the medical, manufacturing and technology industries (and everything in between) are firmly rooted in Fargo, including Sanford Health, Essentia Health, Phoenix International, Border States Electric, Case New Holland and Microsoft. With an unemployment rate below three percent, Fargo has a work-friendly job market perfect for nearly anyone looking to begin the professional chapter of their life. When the final exam is complete, the final paper submitted and the cap and gown worn, area graduates will conclude their college days with not only a degree but also a new and vibrant home in Fargo. 47


MEET THE

Studio 1318 F

or our collegiate month, we are hanging with Emily Groth - a student in her final year at MSUM who is creating macrame works under the name Studio 1318.

INTERVIEW BY Ashley Morken, Unglued

48 | SEPTEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Tell us about yourself! My name is Emily Groth, I am 21 years old and grew up in Fargo. I am currently attending MSUM and will be graduating in spring 2020 with a BA in Graphic Communications with a minor in Marketing. I work at a local insurance company as a graphic design intern in the brand and marketing communications department. I love going to concerts, traveling, fishing at the lake with my family and hanging out with friends! What do you make under Studio 1318: I create hand-knotted macrame wall hangings and plant hangers on found driftwood and branches. Macrame is a form of textile produced by using various knotting techniques. Decorating with wall hangings and plant hangers add texture to the otherwise flat walls of a room. Every piece I create is unique. What is one of your most favorite items you have made? My favorite macrame piece was knotted on driftwood that I found on the coast of

Australia. It’s sort of a souvenir to me and reminds me of my goals to travel as often as I can! This specific design truly makes me proud! It’s the only wall hanging that I’ve decided to keep for my own home. What are your most essential tools? My hands are my most essential tools. I also have clothes racks where I hang the driftwood so I’m able to stand and knot. The only other tool I use is a scissor. It’s a fairly simple process. My studio space is in the spare bedroom of my home. How has your business evolved over the past couple of years of doing it? I started knotting under my lofted bed in my dorm room as a hobby. The macrame trend became increasingly popular around this time so I kept practicing my knots. I began creating custom wall hangings for friends and internet friends. Eventually, I felt confident with my style and applied for my first craft show. Since then I’ve been participating in a few craft and art shows every year and have


recently made my work available online. It’s exciting being an artist in the FM area because there are so many opportunities to share your artwork with others. Where do you find your inspiration? I find inspiration in macrame from previous decades and try to take a modern approach using their techniques. What is your favorite thing about focusing on macrame? It’s very therapeutic. It helps me unwind and relax because it’s kind of a mindless activity now that I’ve gotten better at my craft. What is a word that best describes you? Passionate. I dive in wholeheartedly into all of the creative work that I do.

What advice would you have given yourself three years ago? Taking creative risks is the most important goal you can have for yourself. Get out of your creative comfort zone and try something new whenever you have the opportunity.

time for my relationships, whether that be family or friends. Being a design student, working as a designer and creating macrame has instilled a new level of confidence in me. I am now a firm believer that you can do anything you put your mind to.

How do you balance being a student with creating things for your business? I am very busy but that’s what I enjoy! I love having multiple projects to work through at the same time. Balancing work, school and business is another art form in my eyes. I get tired of being bored so I am always working towards personal and professional goals that I set for myself. Having goals and a plan to make them happen is exciting and helps me stay on track.

Where can people find your work? I’m involved in community events like Unglued Craft Fest and pop-ups at local stores. To be in the loop of where I’m setting up shop next, follow me on social media. If you’re a business owner and interested in learning more about my art, please contact me by email at emilystudio1318@gmail.com

HEALTH & WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT

Making Time

for the Little Things

I

BY Patrick Metzger

n his famous book, “Eat that Frog!,” author Brian Tracy states, “There is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important things.” It’s true in the fact that you are constantly prioritizing items in your life. You’re trying to walk that fine tightrope of balancing work and family, between drive and relaxation and with your health and allowing yourself to let loose in life a bit. At the end of the day, you always seem to make time for the absolute most important items in your life.

In reality, however, it’s not that you’re making time. You’re ultimately choosing to put focus and energy toward the items and activities you’ve chosen to place the highest value on. Some of those might be helping you move the needle toward creating better results within your personal life, career or with your health and wellness, or they may be just a time suck for you, eating away the precious minutes you’re blessed with each day. If you truly want results, you need to have a focused plan and be consistently implementing small habits and behaviors into your every day so you can reach a higher level of performance and success in your life. Take the time to do the little things that will have a compounding effect. As the saying goes, as a rising tide lifts all boats, you’ll find that as you begin to improve one area of your life, the others will begin to rise to a higher level as well. So where can you start? Here are my top hints and tips, all very doable, that I personally use that you can begin to implement on a daily basis to reach a higher level: 1. Wake up each day with your sails set toward specific intent. Be clear on what living a life of significance truly looks and feels like for you. 2. Think positively and look at potential obstacles as opportunities to grow and develop. 3. Get active first thing in the morning. It will increase energy levels and stoke your motivation and self-confidence.

50 | SEPTEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

4. Drop the hour-long cardio sessions and put the Netflix away. Focus on fast and furious strength circuit training to boost that metabolism, add some great muscle tone and save time. 5. Tell those closest to you that you love them and give them a hug. Life is too short not to. 6. Eat a good-sized breakfast packed with protein that will set you up for a successful day. You’ll be less hungry throughout and later into the day.


Patrick is a life and highperformance coach. For more information visit him at patrick-metzger.com

14. Take time to transition and refocus between activities. You’ll be amazed at the energy you have later in the day.

25. Make time for yourself each day. Quiet time and deep thought reduce much stress and anxiety.

15. Drink enough water by aiming for at least a half-ounce to one full ounce for each pound of body weight. Your whole body will thank you.

26. Plan your day in advance the day or night before. Plain and simple. No plan = No results.

16. Be proactive rather than reactive. You have much more control of your life than you think. 7. Sync calendars with your significant other. It will save a tremendous amount of time going back and forth on daily items, schedules and planning. 8. Block schedule your workweek. Be sure to include transition, buffer and open times to account for changes and additions.

17. Remember that you become your environment and whom you choose to hang around with. Choose wisely. 18. Connect your current decisions to the future identity you seek. You become whom you focus on becoming.

9. Control your calendar. You’re the gatekeeper of your time.

19. Don’t look for the easiest method. Look for the one that will provide you with more long-term opportunity or growth.

10. Remember that food is merely fuel for the phenomenal machine that your body is. Treat it well.

20. Ignore the naysayers. They’re only that way because they’re self-conscious or jealous.

11. Seek to be open-minded and to listen to and understand others first. You’ll be surprised by how people will begin to open up to you and what you’ll learn.

21. Use the alarm and reminder functions on your phone. They’ll help you create habits.

12. See things in life for what they are, not only as you choose to see them.

22. Stretch your comfort zone and lean into fears daily. They’re the only ways you grow.

13. Bring the energy in life rather than sucking it out of others. Nobody likes an energy vampire.

23. Be where your feet are. Find the enjoyment and fulfillment you seek in the present moment.

27. Always be looking for growth and development. Books. Podcasts. Articles. Networking. 28. Prep what you need for the morning the night before. You’ll be glad you did in the dark at 5:30 am. 29. Reflect on each day, seeing and feeling where you could have done things differently, where you had successes, how you grew and where you need to make changes. Self-awareness is vital. 30. Be thankful for all that you have. Things can change in a heartbeat, and there are much less fortunate than you. 31. Get at least seven hours of sleep each night. Enough sleep will keep you healthy, happy, motivated and well. There you have it. Thirty-one tips that you can immediately begin implementing in your daily routine to reach a higher level of overall performance in your life, without a ton of work, other than maybe a little planning and a shift in mindset. But as the great coach John Wooden said, “It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.”

24. Meal plan. This is THE biggest habit when it comes to nutrition that will kickstart you onto the right path.

THINK GLOBAL ACT LOCAL

THE ULTIMATE PITCH

Hillary Ehlen

#book1life

Habari Gani!

Can you tell us more about yourself, Sawyer?

starts with a small goal.

When someone first meets Sawyer Anderson, she seems like a regular fifth grader.

S: I’m Sawyer and I’m going into fifth grade at Oak Grove. I’ve gone to Hope Kids at my church, Hope Lutheran, since I was a baby and sat on a mat with older kids in class. I love theatre, dancing at BAS Studios, drawing, playing basketball and I’m trying volleyball. I play drums at Elevate with Bryce and his friends. Most important of all, I LOVE doing things with my three-year-old sister, Sloane.

S: In “Water Works,” Sloane wants to raise $50 selling cookies and water at her grandma’s garage sale.

At first glance, you seem like a normal busy fifth-grader, except there is something special about you…

How much more?

However, when I saw her interview on WDAY on how she was thinking globally and acting locally, I immediately wanted to help to share her story with the world! The fall semester has started in our vibrant tri-college community and that means the 50,000+ college students are back in our area. Therefore, we hope that Sawyer's story will inspire all of us to tackle local and global societal issues, one meaningful act a time. Asante Sana! Alexandre Cyusa

BY Alex Cyusa

S: Well, I have this book I wrote and illustrated called “Water Works” that tells the story of a character I named Sloane, after my sister because I love her so much. My protagonist learns from her dad, who just returned from a water mission trip to Zambia in Africa, there are people who don’t have clean, safe water and have to walk miles a day to get dirty water from a shallow well or stream and fill a big bucket for the family to drink. I read “Water Works” and really enjoyed it. There are so many messages and the story

52 | SEPTEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Why $50? S: Her dad told her that $50 will provide water for one person for life! But she doesn’t raise $50. Oh no! She raised a lot more!

S: Well, people need to buy and read “Water Works” to find out. We have this deal, my dad says it’s called a co-venture agreement, with Wellspring for the World and World Vision. He does the math. ALL of the money from sales of “Water Works” goes to Wellspring and gets doubled. Then, World Vision triples it. So, every book sold generates at least $50 and will provide water for one person for life! One book one life! I read your bio too. It says you started raising money for water when you were eight selling cookies and then chitenge bags and raised $26,000. Quite a bit more than your $50 goal.


So “Water Works” is based on something that moved you to raise $50? S: My dad told me stories of people he met in Zambia named Maria and Michael and the bad things that happened because they didn’t have water. The story of Brian was the last straw for me. He’s my age and had to go to a shallow well with his sister to get water for the family for the day. She fell in and drowned. A year later he went to the same well and a puff adder, it’s like a cobra snake, bit his arm. It hurt and by the time he got home, he passed out and they had to amputate his arm. That just did it for me. I thought to myself, it’s just not fair. I had to do something! Who helped you along this ambitious project? S: My grandma made cookies until her arm got tired and then we found some friends to help because I sold 80 dozen and raised almost $5,000. At my church, Hope Lutheran, the kids in Children’s Ministry designed and sold chitenge bags that A LOT of volunteers, like 100, helped Pastor Paul cut and sew 1,400 chitenge bags. What is a Chitenge? S: Chitenge is a skirt made from African wax fabric, but they use it for many things - head wraps, baby carriers, clothes, bags, etc. And you sold more than 300? S: Yes. And a chitenge bag that I designed, cut, sewed and named after

Wilfred, who came from Zambia for the Wellspring Wine to Water event, sold for $6,000. How did you raise more than $15,000 from selling chitenge bags? S: First, so many people at Hope Lutheran helped cut and sew. Well, one of the first buyers was this guy, Alex, a friend of my dad. My dad said I should text him a video of my elevator pitch. I was like, I’m eight, what’s an elevator pitch? So, I developed an elevator pitch and it was an offer he couldn’t refuse. A book? How does a nine going on 10-yearold decide to write a book? S: That’s a really cool part of the story. A lot of people who bought bags bought more than they needed because they wanted to save lives. Some of them donated the bags back and asked me to find the right home for them. When I learned about the young women and kids in the Jeremiah Program, I knew that’s where the bags would go. So, they asked me to make a presentation at their graduation and I got to meet some of these ladies who have had a really tough time. There, this nice lady named Coiya, said ‘Hey, how would you like to work with me and write a book?’ I was like..huh? Can I illustrate it too? So, it took about four months and we have “Water Works”— and I developed a new elevator pitch for “Water Works:” “1 book, 1 life. Save a life with every book. That’s an offer you can’t refuse, so buy a book and save a life. $9.99!”

forget about the

crock-pot By Joe Brunner, Mezzaluna Photos by Nolan Schmidt 54 | SEPTEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Serves 10

Trusting The Process Braising has five easy steps, if you follow these steps every time, you will have a great product at the end. No matter what.

E

veryone loves the simple thought of being able to put something in the Crock-Pot in the morning. Then, you come home after work to a finished meal that IS that simple, but is it that good? When cooking in the crock-pot, essentially what you’re doing is simmering the protein in a liquid that will turn that protein tender over time. Technically that process is called braising. To braise means ‘to cook (meat, fish or vegetables) by sautéing in fat and then simmering slowly in very little liquid.’ The difference between braising and using a Crock-Pot is, when you braise in a pot or dutch oven, you can build on top of the flavors by searing and deglazing. Gathering Your Meats Unlike when you’re cooking steaks or pork chops and spending more money on those quick-cooking meats when you choose the meats for braising, you will be spending way less on bigger pieces of meat. When braising either pork, chicken or beef, you want to look for the tougher, fattier and harder working pieces. This is because the proteins break down and so will the fats that will result in a more flavorful product.

Step 1 Sear your meat By searing the meat, you create a barrier to keep all of the juices in the meat. By doing that, it will bring a more complex flavor to the end product. Color equals flavor. Step 2 Sautéing your vegetables Once the meat is seared, there will be vegetables that need to be cooked as well. When cooking the vegetables you will follow the same idea as step one. Step 3 Deglazing Deglazing is a fancy way of saying you’re collecting all of the delicious brown pieces left on the bottom of the pan. You can deglaze with any liquid whether its wine, beer, vinegar, stock or even water. When that cold liquid hits the hot pan, use a wooden spoon to scrape all of the pieces off, which will help flavor your liquid. Step 4 Cover with liquid Once the meat and vegetables are seared and the pan is deglazed, it’s time to add the liquid you’ll cook in. When adding the liquid, only add enough to where it reaches halfway up the protein you’re cooking with. If you cover it completely, you’ll be stewing the meat. Step 5 Cover and cooking The final step is to make sure your meat and liquid are in a heat-proof pan. Cover it with a lid or foil and then stick it in a 350-degree oven for any time up to five hours.

Braised Pull Pork Shoulder with Cabbage Slaw Ingredients • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

5-8 lb pork shoulder Salt Pepper 2 onions, chopped 1 large carrot, chopped ½ bunch of celery, chopped 4 garlic cloves, crushed 2 Tablespoons chili powder 1 Tablespoon of cumin 2 - 12oz cans of light beer 2 quarts chicken stock, or water Fresh thyme 1 head of cabbage (red or green) 1 cup mayo 1 cup of buttermilk 1 tablespoon honey 1 tablespoon white vinegar 10 burger buns

While the pan is heating, cover pork shoulder with a generous amount of salt and pepper. • Add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil into to pan, carefully place pork shoulder into the pan. Continue to brown the shoulder on all four sides while being careful not to burn it. Once the pork is browned, remove from the pan and set aside. • Add in your vegetables to the pan and stir around until the vegetables are softened. Deglaze the pan with the beer, add in the stock and spices. Bring to a simmer. Add in the pork shoulder. Cover and place into the oven for five-six hours. • Once the pork has braised in the oven, take it out. Wait for it to cool down a bit and then shred the pork. Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce.

SAILOR JERRY PRESENTS ROUGHRIDER INK & IRON EXPO

Enjoy an evening of food, music, art, and live performance at Folkway’s Night Bazaar. Listen to live music by Slim, Dylan Boehmer and Bryan Stanley, Kari Marie Trio, and Jessica Vines Band. Shop from local artists, makers, and vintage shops. Grab a drink from Front Street Taproom or dinner from food trucks and carts. Join for the final Bazaar of the 2019 season!

The Roughrider Ink & Iron Expo (RIIE) is an event combining two separate genres that align when we compare the skill, artistry, and expression shared by tattoos and motorcycles. Aimed at providing education, recognition, and empowerment of the original canvas while also celebrating the incredible artistry of custom motorcycles, RIIE creates an environment equally approachable for the novice as well as the most hard-core among all artists, enthusiasts and fans. RIIE stands by its commitment to give back to the community and will be donating a portion of tickets sales to the Make-A-Wish® North Dakota.

Thursday, September 19 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Pop Evil with Royal Tusk & BRKN Love Saturday, September 21 at 7 p.m.

When North Muskegon, Michigan native Leigh Kakaty formed Pop Evil, he chose the band’s name for a reason. He loved hard rock songs with good melodies but he also dug loud, crunchy guitars and propulsive metal rhythms. For Kakaty, it’s a natural duality that came from growing up in the Great Lakes and it eventually became the raison d’etre of his band. Five albums into Pop Evil’s career, combining strong hooks with knockout


eclectic players with whom he’s been touring, on and off, since 2002: longtime guitarist Justin Adams, keyboardist-programmer John Baggott, bassist Billy Fuller, drummer Dave Smith, and guitarist Liam “Skin” Tyson. Collectively, the group—which evolved out of an earlier Plant backing combo, Strange Sensation—has its roots in folk and world music, and the still-influential Bristol Sound of Massive Attack and Portishead, propelled by the juggernaut Howling Wolf/Led Zep legacy. jadepresents.com Bluestem Amphitheater 801 50th Ave S., Moorhead

the alzheimer's association

Not familiar with Alzheimer's? Alzheimer's is a (currently) irreversible progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory, thinking skills and ability to carry out tasks. Symptoms include difficulty remembering newly learned information, disorientation, mood and behavior changes, confusion and difficulty speaking, swallowing or walking. Why is the continuation of support and research around Alzheimer's so important? In North Dakota alone, more than 14,000 residents are living with Alzheimer's and more than 30,000 friends and family members are providing care. Since January 2019, our region's branch of the Alzheimer's Association has provided approximately 14,000

care consultations or family meetings in every county in North Dakota. With more support and involvement, this number can continue to grow. One of the most widely recognized efforts The Alzheimer's Association puts on is their Walk to End Alzheimer's. This walk is the world's largest event for raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research. Within North Dakota, there are walks in Minot, Bismark, Fargo, Grand Forks and even more in Minnesota. September 21 will be the Fargo Walk to End Alzheimer's, held at the Fargo Civic Center. This all-ages event has a goal to raise $110,000 and to see 1,000 walkers showing their support for the mission. "The Walk brings a sense of purpose to our community and to those who work with individuals everyday living with Alzheimer's and dementia. They see firsthand how this disease can affect individuals and families, and they are fighting for a cure to find our first survivor," said Emily Bultema, senior development manager at Alzheimer's Association Minnesota-North Dakota Chapter. "By fundraising for the Walk and starting a team, you can create awareness of the disease and our cause."

What are some ways people can help? • Sign up for the Walk today! There is no minimum amount you must fundraise, but The Alzheimer’s Association is here to help make it easy. Register at alz.org/walk • Companies can support the Alzheimer’s Association at a sponsor level that fits their needs while supporting the association’s programs, research and care options as well as build a positive presence in the community. • Encourage your friends and family to get involved and volunteer with you at the Walk. • Sign up to be a Walk day volunteer to help set-up and tear-down for the Walk. Sign up here: signup.com/go/RfCJCQa • Become a volunteer community educator and teach classes and programs for the Alzheimer’s Association. • Join their Walk Planning Committee and be an instrumental volunteer for planning the Walk to End Alzheimer’s!
