(Moorhead, MN) -- A special group has been honored by the City of Moorhead.

On Monday, September 13th, the Moorhead City Council and Mayor Shelly Carlson presented group administrator Mara Morken and moderators Chris Orth and Marsha Drewlow Wichmann with the MoorHeart award.

Moorhead = Fantastic has more than 3,900 members and is growing daily. The group focuses on creating a positive place where members can share important information about Moorhead and also help each other answer questions and solve issues. Topics include:

  • Moorhead-specific events
  • Ideas or dreams for the community
  • Solution/answer seeking
  • Interesting articles relating to Moorhead
  • Volunteer/donation opportunities
  • Celebrations

The group doesn’t allow rants for the sake of complaining, public shaming of people or businesses, political postings, or behavior that might make users uncomfortable.

The MoorHeart award is an opportunity to recognize individuals who go above and beyond to demonstrate community within our City by their actions and service. Former Mayor Johnathan Judd received the first MoorHeart award in February 2021. A team of volunteers from city boards and commissions selects award recipients.
