Dickey Rib Cook-off is July 13
The 10th annual Sweet N’ Stickey in Dickey Rib Cook-off will be at the Dickey Bar on Saturday, July 13. All proceeds will be given to Hospice of the Red River Valley in memory of loved ones who have passed away, most of whom have received hospice care in the community.
“We continue to hold this event because we are so thankful for the care Hospice has and continues to provide to our loved ones, and we look forward to another successful cook-off,” said Chrissy Kartes, event organizer.
The North Dakota Community Foundation has announced that Tim Ottmar, attorney and partner at Ottmar & Ottmar PC, Jamestown, has been elected to a one-year term as secretary/treasurer on the NDCF Board.
The North Dakota Community Foundation Board of Directors is made up of 15 volunteers from across the state. They receive no financial compensation for their service on the board. They are elected from the population of North Dakota and are selected to represent a broad cross-section of North Dakotans. They can serve two three-year terms and then must leave the board.
The North Dakota Community Foundation is a public, nonprofit tax-exempt corporation which receives and distributes charitable funds to support a wide range of programs that improve the quality of life for North Dakotans. NDCF currently manages over 700 funds for various North Dakota communities and donors, including 65 community foundations and over 150 scholarship funds. It holds assets in excess of $83 million and to date has made more than $72 million in grants all across North Dakota.
Income eligibility guidelines for the North Dakota Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) have increased based on changes in the federal poverty levels. The change increases the amount of income a family can make and still qualify for services. Effective May 1, a family of four can earn up to $3,970 each month (or $917 each week for the household) and meet the new WIC income eligibility requirements.
Funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, WIC provides healthy food, nutrition education and community support. WIC services are available for income eligible pregnant women, moms of infants, and children up to age 5.
To qualify for WIC, families must reside in North Dakota, meet income requirements and have a nutritional or medical need for WIC services, such as anemia or inadequate diet. Qualification is based on height, weight, hemoglobin (blood test) and a health and diet assessment. Contact a local WIC agency or visit the WIC website at www.ndhealth.gov/wic.
