It’s crunch time for the Salvation Army kettle campaign in Greater Grand Forks. SA officials say kettle collections are on track but the mail portion of the campaign is a bit behind set goals. The hope is to raise around 365-thousand dollars this holiday season. Bell ringers have found a few surprises in their kettles this year. A troy ounce silver coin worth about 37 dollars was found in one bin while a silver coin with a note saying it was worth about 70-dollars was dropped in another bucket. A third kettle contained eight 100-dollar bills. The mail campaign will continue into January.
