Welcoming Week 2017

The Fargo-Moorhead metro area will be celebrating National Welcoming Week September 14-24 with 15+ events (the number keeps growing) spread out over the 10 days.  The local theme this year is “Bring a friend, make a friend,” as organizers hope to see 2,000 people attend events (bring a friend!).  Organizers are also looking to promote a year-round welcoming community in which friendships cross national, language, and/or faith divides (make a friend).  Events are free and open to the public!
