I recently spoke with Marcia Benway, a representative from CHI St. Alexius Health in Williston, to learn more about this beating heart of our community and to collect information about the number of infants born in 2023.

It is a tangible expression of the community's growth and resilience, encapsulating the optimism and promise that new beginnings bring.

As we celebrate the arrival of 617 (so far) bundles of joy in 2023, we also celebrate the prosperity and vibrancy of Williston, North Dakota.
