Despite the wind and rain that blanketed Detroit Lakes early Thursday morning, the United Way of Becker County was able to pull off a successful Community Celebration that evening at the DL Pavilion.


"The rains stopped, the winds aren't as strong -- and the people are smiling," said LuAnn Porter, executive director of the United Way of Becker County, at the start of the event. "Someone's taking care of us up there."
