This month we introduce Douglas Schmitz, the Vice President of our Main Street Living North Board of Directors. Douglas grew up on a farm near Red Lake Falls, Minnesota. He graduated from UMC, Crookston and NDSU, Fargo, with a degree in agricultural economics and finance. He farmed with his father for a year between colleges. He then worked for an insurance holding company for four years before starting his career as a financial advisor. Over the past thirty years, Douglas has been able to help many people answer complex financial questions. Douglas met his wonderful wife, Rebekah, in college at NDSU. Rebekah has a childcare business in their home in North Fargo. They have four adult children, two of which are teachers, one is a DCE, and one is a chemical engineer. Douglas and Rebekah have been blessed with three grandchildren, and a fourth one on the way. They have spent more than thirty years as active members of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Moorhead. Thank you, Douglas, for your many hours of volunteer work for MSLN!
Also, just a quick reminder that the broadcast time for the Fargo based FOX television stations has now changed from 10:00 am to 9:00 am. (The Duluth based station will continue to broadcast their programs starting at 10:00 am.)
