It's a busy week for the United Way of Becker County, with not just one, but two major events coming up.

The United Way Celebration of Heroes takes place Thursday at the Holiday Inn Lakeside in Detroit Lakes.


The Celebration of Heroes began in April 2002, in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
