My mom was recently awarded the distinction of being Polk County's Volunteer of the Year! This is given to a person who has been nominated by others in their community for outstanding volunteer contributions.
Below is a photo of Mom, Dad, me, and Arlen (one of my older brothers) after she received her award at the Fertile Fair. This picture was taken only a week before my Dad was hospitalized in Rochester.
My son Ben was also there.
Last week Mom even got to be in a parade in Crookston because of her award.
This was really exciting for her and us! : )
