It’s been quite a week at the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce. We kicked it off with the opportunity to meet with the unfortunate candy reps turned media darlings who landed in our fair city because of unmet sales goals. The Just Born candy people were a joy to have in Fargo and even opened my eyes a bit wider to this beautiful winter playground I call my home. We are forever indebted to them for using their national media draw to spread the word about our cultural Mecca on the prairie.
“We were fully charmed by the kindness and warmth of Fargo’s citizens, and considered it an honor that you opened up your city to us.”

It’s not every day that, as someone whose job it is to promote our region, I get to help provide a transformative experience to a group of visitors, who then have the ear of every major newspaper in the country to shout their praises of Fargo.
In a recent twist, the Just Born team has decided that it would like to give back to Fargo by doing volunteer work here for a couple of days (when the weather warms up). How very Fargo of them! You can bet I’ll be by their sides, serving the Fargo community that has given me so much.
