9/11 event in Newfolden

Today is 9/11/11 and the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council provided funds for the wonderful commemorative event that took place in Newfolden this morning.  The choir and band and select groups provided high quality music and the visual art backdrops created by local schools were a nice addition to the stage.  It was an amazingly large crowd!  The event was very well organized.  Congratulations to all the volunteers and the 9/11 committee!  – Mara Wittman
