Letter: German Culture Day a big successCongratulations, Moorhead-Fargo. We produced an entirely new festival at the Hjemkomst Center focused on German heritage Sept. 28, and more than 1,000 attended. That was double what we expected for our first year.
The most commonly heard comment was “It’s about time you celebrate German heritage!” It was our pleasure.
We want to thank all our sponsors and supporters including Moorhead Public Service, North Dakota Council on the Arts, The Arts Partnership, the Lake Region Arts Council, thanks to the voters of Minnesota through a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, Bergseth Brothers, and Schell Brewery.
Arts and cultural heritage are essential to a healthy, happy community, and we appreciate the support in making German Culture Day a big success.
