Two of the biggest communities in the MonDak came together to create a stronger bond.
Williston and Sidney held a Connecting Communities event at the Veteran’s Park in Sidney. The July 7 outing is a spin-off from the Good Neighbor Breakfast held a couple of years ago.
The free event allows outreach to communities around the MonDak region. This is the second event held this year. The previous Connecting Communities event was in held in Watford City last month.
"We look at the region as a whole, western North Dakota and eastern Montana. When we talk about economic development, we all have to work together. We are going to accomplish some extraordinary things when we put our heads together. There is a bright future for this region and it starts right here with building relationships," said Shawn Wenko, Williston Economic Development Director.
The third Connecting Communities event will be held in Crosby on August 23.
