|Register now for 'Stone Soup' awards program|
Registration is now available for the Stone Soup Awards Program and Luncheon Wednesday, Nov. 5, sponsored by the University of North Dakota's Center for Community Engagement.
Community members are welcome to the event, which celebrates the collaborative work community and University members have done to support the well-being of North Dakota communities.
First Lady Marcia Kelley and Grand Forks Mayor Michael Brown will serve a unique vegetable “stone soup” symbolizing the collaborative efforts that sustain a community, like the old folk tale of the travelers who start a soup with a stone and entice villagers to contribute to the pot.
Recognition and awards will be given to community partners, departments, faculty, and students. Exhibits of exemplary partnerships and projects will be on display.
The event will be held on UND’s campus in the Memorial Union Ballroom, beginning at 11:30 a.m. with registration and exhibits. Tickets are $7.50 for students and $20 for community and University members. Checks made out to UND can be sent to the Center for Community Engagement, 317 Cambridge Street, Grand Forks, ND 58202; registration can be completed online at HYPERLINK "http://www.stonesoup.eventbrite.com" www.stonesoup.eventbrite.com for a nominal fee; or call 777-0675.
