FARGO—I remember bending pipe cleaners to create handles that I'd attach to Dixie cups filled with candy. My sister and I would run up to our neighbors' porches, ring the doorbell and leave the May Day baskets. We'd look forward to the ritual each spring and our entire north Fargo neighborhood would participate. May Day celebrates the return of spring. Historically, festivities included the gathering of wildflowers and green branches, weaving floral garlands and dancing around a Maypole, according to various online sources.
FARGO — Presentation Center, 1101 32nd Ave. S., Fargo, will host a class called "Living in God Space" from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, April 25, Monday, May 2, and Monday, May 9. Using Teilhard de Chardin's book "The Divine Mileau" as a starting point, the class will explore ways to enter into a richer personal spirituality. The class will rely on formal presentations, group discussions and personal exercises like journaling.
FARGO – More than 185 people have shared their style in this space. You've told me stories about your families and travels, and how it all shapes the way you dress. Most of us have become friends.
FARGO—Tessa Beck shares her in-between moments on Instagram. The 21-year-old North Dakota State University student calls them "aftermath images." "I tend to gravitate toward the more quiet happenings and moments," she says. "I like to think the aftermath images can just as effectively tell a story." Beck is studying German and art history in Berlin and her Instagram feed, @tessamariebeck, reflects her minimalistic, artistic aesthetic. The images have a quiet, peaceful vibe and are often muted in color.
MOORHEAD—In the photograph, they're smiling, eyes closed, heads touching. It was the first day of summer. Jacqueline Bussie was home from graduate school to care for her mother, Charlotte Bussie. Charlotte didn't recognize her daughter—she was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease at age 50.
FARGO—The first time I tried to remove gel polish at home, it was a disaster.
FARGO—HGTV's "Property Brothers" Drew and Jonathan Scott have never been to Fargo. But they're familiar with the North Dakota State University Bison, pronouncing it like most outsiders do, with an "s" instead of the "z." We'll forgive them since one of the brothers said "heckuva" during the interview and the other wears flannel sometimes. Drew, a Realtor, and Jonathan, a contractor, will fit right in with Midwesterners when they speak Saturday, April 23, at the Eco Chic Design Conference here. Their keynote talk gives them a chance to connect with fans.
FARGO—Hope Lutheran Church's Women's Ministry will host two events for girls and women in April.
MOORHEAD—The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County invites the public to a presentation and discussion at 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 20, at the Hjemkomst Center, 202 1st Ave. N.
FARGO – Clark Iepson's favorite accessory is a snack. He's a year and a half old—I'd want snacks all the time, too.
