Unity. One definition of the word at dictionary.com states: oneness of mind, feeling, etc., as among a number of persons; concord, harmony, or agreement. Minden exemplified this definition during the Minden St. Jude Auction.
I am amazed each year how our community comes together for this cause. Hundreds volunteer their time and resources for the effort. Businesses, organizations, and individuals all enthusiastically participate in the auction.
The “cause” unifies groups and individuals, regardless of race, status, background or other divisive factors. For these four days, we are truly “one Minden.”
