Annual Banquet

Thank you to everyone who attended last night’s Dinner and Auction! Fountain was a great host and we thank them for welcoming us to their facility and town. If you went home with an auction item, thank you for your donation and we hope you enjoy your items!

Mike McCabe gave us all stunning perspectives on life and leadership from his experience as a former TOPGUN. Most of us concluded after watching his clips from the Blue Angels and TOPGUN pilots that we should probably keep our wings on the ground and not quit our day jobs! Stunning!

Former board member, Wayne Dreier, presented a special recognition award to our founder, Dan Christianson, who has been instrumental in the creation and growth of our Community Foundation. Dan has been a true voice and advocate for our area in many ways. We wouldn’t be where we are today without him.

Tim Penny, President/CEO of the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation, also stressed how instrumental Dan’s leadership has been for our community but also how important Community Foundations are to rural growth. We couldn’t agree more!

Estelle's Eatery & Bar made up a delicious spread as always!

Once again, we appreciate your support and are always excited to put your donations right back in to the community!
