Watford City, ND - The Promiseland Project was launched at this year’s SXSW in Austin, TX with the goal of visiting all 50 states to encourage us all to better get to know one another and “walk a mile in each other’s shoes.” Founder Roy Spence was joined on stage by Matthew McConaughey who threw a dart to determine the first stop on our journey. It landed on Watford City, and we’re excited to bring America’s Front Porch to North Dakota as our inaugural destination.
On Sunday, October 14 from 3-6:30 p.m., we’re inviting McKenzie County area neighbors to join us at the Rough Rider Center for an afternoon of inspiration, front porch conversation and music from North Dakota’s own Tigirlily and Nashville’s MamaDear. In addition to great music, Promiseland Project founder Roy Spence and Watford City’s Jessie Veeder will take part in a conversation among local business owners and community leaders.
“We’re here to help folks get to know each other and build an American culture of us. So that together we can be the best US, as in USA.” said Spence. “Watford City is a great place to call home,” adds Jessie Veeder “Getting to know each other better is a great way to help strengthen our sense of community.”
America’s Front Porch is an actual front porch, built by Texas and North Dakota builders that will serve as a stage for the day’s events. This porch will travel with the Promiseland Project throughout the country.
