Roers Hosts Give Back Lunch for Cullen Children’s Foundation

Roers employees recently hosted their second Give Back lunch at the Roers main office location. This lunch proceeds from this quarterly lunch were given to the Cullen Children’s Foundation. Employees vote on a charity of  their choice for proceeds to be given to from the free will luncheon. “Being part of an organization that builds stronger communities by supporting charities such as the Cullen’s Children’s Foundation is a true blessing!  I enjoy being a part of Roers, not only because I enjoy my job, but also because they care about the communities where we live and work,” said Leslie Wegner, Roers team member.

Employees come together once a quarter for this lunch which is a time for networking but more importantly to help give back to the community. The Cullen Children’s Foundation is very generous to children in this area dealing with healthcare issues. “Supporting Cullens Children’s Foundation is close to my heart as they donated funds to create a spectacular children’s play space in the new Sanford Hospital.  When my son was only 2 years old, we had a few hospital stays in the previous Sanford Hospital and we spent time in the much smaller children’s play space there.  It was a great space for my son to feel like a kid and play, even though he was in the hospital.  I can’t imagine how thankful the parents of children in the new hospital are for that new space where their kids can forget about being sick for a while,” commented Wegner.

Roers is proud to give back often to community organizations in a variety of ways. For details on our Give & Grow Committee, visit https://roers.com/about/.

Construction is Officially Underway at Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center

A groundbreaking ceremony took place on Wednesday, October 16, 2019, to commemorate the launch of the construction of the Missouri Slope North Campus. Local city officials including Bismarck Mayor Steve Bakken, Brian Ritter, President of Bismarck Mandan Chamber EDC, Pastor Larry Giese, Missouri Slope’s Board of Directors, proud residents and care givers of Missouri Slope, Roers Companies and Pope Architects team members, along with numerous community members were all in attendance for the event.

Roers Construction and Development teams will work collaboratively with Pope Architects for Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center on the initial phase of the project which will feature the Skilled Nursing Facility and Town Center. “The Roers team is looking forward to starting work on this project for Missouri Slope, the largest and only locally owned and operated non-profit long term care organization in the Bismarck/Mandan community,” commented Larry Nygard, President of Roers Development Inc. Missouri Slope’s current facility which has served the community for 52 years, is imperative to help fill the unmet needs of senior living options in the area.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, our journey to build the most advanced long term care facility in the region begins with the first shovel” says Reier Thompson, President/CEO of Missouri Slope.  Phase I is anticipated to be completed by October 1, 2021. Phase 2 will consist of Base Care including 130 basic nursing beds and Phase 3 will add 60 apartments for Independent Living options.

Exciting Times for the City of Moorhead

Roers and the City of Moorhead (the “City”) have recently announced their plan to enter into a predevelopment agreement with the option for the City to purchase real estate property with Roers. The partnership will lead to identifying redevelopment opportunities for the existing Moorhead City Hall, located at the 500 block of Center Avenue in Moorhead, and surrounding City-owned property.

The predevelopment agreement provides Roers Real Estate Services to take representation of City-owned property in order to explore potential partnerships, which may lead to a comprehensive redevelopment plan for the City owned property. Roers and the City have entered into a professional services agreement, therefore a public bid for the services was not required. Roers will not be compensated in any manner until a City approved plan is developed.

As part of the joint venture, Roers and the City will focus on a win-win situation for all parties including the Moorhead Center Mall property owners, Downtown Moorhead Inc., residents and business owners of Moorhead. Moorhead Center Mall is privately held, therefore these properties will maintain standard operating. Both the City and Roers recognize these businesses have been vital to keep the mall a destination for the community. Roers will partner with Moorhead Center Mall property owners to identify future opportunities as plans for the City progress. Downtown Moorhead Inc. and the City of Moorhead have begun to embark on a downtown planning effort, which is currently engaging citizens and business owners in creating a vision for Downtown Moorhead. Any project concept Roers would develop for City-owned property will be consistent with the vision of the Downtown Master Plan currently being drafted. “We anticipate this partnership with the City of Moorhead is just the beginning of major growth for the entire Moorhead community. With the excitement the Moorhead residents and business owners have around the plans for revitalization in the downtown sector, there are abundant opportunities for growth. Its an exciting time for the community,” commented Jim Roers, CEO of Roers.

10 Years of Chili

The beginning of fall not only means it’s time for pumpkin spice lattes, sweaters, pumpkin patches, and football… but it also means it’s time for the Annual Roers / Keller Williams Chili Feed! What is better on a crisp autumn day than a hot bowl of chili for a good cause? We’ll help you out – nothing!

 

Every fall for the past 10 years, the Roers team and the Keller Williams Inspire Realty team has joined forces to host the Chili Feed with all proceeds benefiting the United Way of Cass-Clay. That’s right… 10 whole years. What a milestone!

 

Celebrating 10 Years

To celebrate 10 years of the Chili Feed… we decided to make this year’s event bigger and better than ever. We increased our sponsorship levels, introduced a Match Sponsor, Taracon Precast, who matched every dollar donated on the day of the event up to $5,000, and for the first time ever had raffle board prizes donated by SCHEELS. We also welcomed back our Presenting Sponsor, Bremer Bank, but with an added bonus of a Fargo INC article and our event on featured billboards around town!

 

 

We also set a goal to raise $50,000 total and surpassed it by a landslide. Thanks to our sponsors and every person who attended, we were able to raise over $69,000 for the United Way of Cass-Clay. Bringing our grand total of money raised from the Chili Feed over the past 10 years to more than $284,000. All because of our amazing community!

 

50 Chili Chefs

Of course the Chili Feed is about raising money for a wonderful cause, but it’s called a CHILI feed for a reason! When you show up, you are greeted by over 50 chili chefs ready to serve you their chili.

 

Thank you to all 50 Chili Chefs who took the time to cook their chili and serve it during the event! What’s fun about serving chili is the little competition that goes on… we run a VIP Judge contest where our VIP Judges vote on their favorite chili, as well as a People’s Choice contest. Every attendee receives a chili bean when they arrive and are get to place that bean in the jar of their favorite chili.

The chilies that win the two contests receive an amazing prize package stuffed with items donated from companies and businesses within the community.

Buffalo Wild Wings, Dakota Design Company, Fargo Force, FloatSix, Gigi’s Cupcakes, Gunderson’s Jewelers, Junkyard Brewing Company, Keller Williams Inspire Realty, Midwest Radio FM, North Star Plumbing, Royal Jewelers, Sandy’s Donuts, Suntana, Uncle Maddio’s Pizza, Vive Salon, Westside Wellness, LLC, Window Tint Pros & Automotive Accessories, & Zorbaz
