We have some very exciting news to share! Watermark is planning a Groundbreaking Ceremony/Community Pint Night event on Wednesday, April 12. Come celebrate with us as we kick off construction on the new art center!

The groundbreaking will be at 4:30 p.m. at 505 Bemidji Ave N. In addition to tossing the ceremonial ‘first shovel’, there will be a brief message from Lorie Yourd, Watermark’s board president; Lori Forshee-Donnay, our executive director; and Howie Zetah, General Contractor for the project.

Following the groundbreaking, the celebration will continue at Bemidji Brewing Company, where Watermark is the featured organization for the brewery’s Community Pint Night. From 5-7 p.m., $1 from every tap purchase, including beer, soda and coffee, will be donated to the art center. Come enjoy a fun night out, celebrate Watermark’s progress and support a great cause. Be sure to bring your friends – the more, the merrier!

“We’re so excited to have finally reached this stage in our project!” said Lori Forshee-Donnay, Watermark’s executive director. “We appreciate all the support the community has given and hope everyone can come out to the brewery for a fun, celebratory evening.”
