Salvation Army celebrating 120 years

The Salvation Army in Bismarck marked 120 years of service Thursday night.

The organization serves thousands of people each year through its programs. The festivities included music, honoring veterans and more.

"We're just excited to be able to celebrate with the residents here 120 years of service here in the Bismarck Mandan area,” Major John Flanagan said. “We want to thank the community for the good support they've given to us."

It was also the kickoff for the annual Red Kettle campaign, which means you'll be seeing the red buckets at stores starting on Monday and running through Christmas Eve.
