Campaign within 10% of goal

    Lori Wagner, who once ran the United Way of Crookston and returned this year to run it again, reports that the current fundraising campaign is less than 10 percent from its $160,000 goal.

    The United Way progress thermometer mounted at American Federal Bank was bumped up to 92 percent earlier this week, putting it a little less than $13,000 from paydirt.

    “We’re almost there...yeah!” Wagner told the Times in an email.

    Two major fundraiser are still to come as well, including Jail and Bail and the Hugo’s Golf Scramble at Minakwa Golf Club.
