FARGO — The United Way of Cass-Clay announced Friday, Feb. 2, it had raised $6 million, exceeding the $5.9 million goal for 2017 that the organization set back in September. United Way Resource Development Director Travis Christopher made the announcement to a group of about 40 United Way staff members and volunteers at the organization's headquarters, 219 7th St. S. in Fargo. Before the official announcement, Christopher took time to thank the volunteer campaign chairman, Paul Richard of Sanford, and other members of the campaign cabinet.
FARGO — When Evelina Shindieva was asked what inspired her to open her new bridal boutique, I Do European Bridal Couture, she had a quick reply. "I really wanted to work with happy people," she said. Vi Mai, manager of the recently opened Honeybee Bridal, had a similar response. "The wedding industry is the happy business to be in," she said. Brittany Zimmerman may agree with that sentiment, but for her, it's also because she's been working in the industry since she was a teen.
FARGO—Christmas is the busiest time of the year for logistics firm C.H. Robinson. That's one reason the culture team at the company's Fargo office, 3175 Sienna Drive S., planned several holiday-themed festivities this month to relieve some tension. They held a cubicle decorating competition, a potluck, Christmas-themed games and a hot cocoa bar. Several local companies sponsor similar activities throughout the holiday season as a way to build camaraderie and boost morale.
