Officials and Business Professionals Ring in the Season

Posted:

'Tis the season for bell ringing.

North Dakota officials help kick off the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign at Kirkwood Mall.

Bell ringing takes place throughout the state through December 24.

Last year's campaign raised more than 148 million dollars nationwide.

First Lady Betsy Dalrymple says she became more acquainted with the Salvation army during the flood of 2011.

She says she appreciates all they do during the year to help out the community.

"I enjoy any volunteer work but this is fun because you get to visit with people, you know. People will come by that, you know, a lot of strangers that you don't get to know and you can just say thank you and I think that's a very nice thing about helping ring a bell," says First Lady Betsy Dalrymple.

There are 16 red kettles throughout the community...

Their goal is to raise 110,000 dollars in Bismarck/Mandan.

Among the business professionals taking their turn at ringing a bell today, our own reporter, Stephanie Scheurer volunteers part of her day.

She says she enjoyed the friendly faces and seeing the little kids reach up to the kettle to drop in their donations.

Steph says she was happy to help ring in the holiday season and hopes she raised close to a half a million dollars on her shift.
