Wednesday, June 16, 2021 - The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County and Fargo Veterans Affairs are collaborating on a series of public events featuring the art of local veterans in trauma recovery. One aspect of the project is a series of veterans’ writing workshops. We visit with the facilitator of those workshops, Vietnam veteran Wendell Affield. ~~~ This June marks the 10th Anniversary of the Souris River flood, which caused millions of dollars in damage, displaced thousands of people and destroyed homes and businesses. Today we begin our special series Main Street, Minot: 10 Years After the Flood. We start with a montage of people reflecting on the event, then continue with excerpts from former KX news anchors Jim Olson and Shaun Sipma.
