At the invitation of W.B. Paul Monteen, the Grand Lodge of Minnesota sponsored a table at the Minnesota Chiefs of Police first annual Gala in Excelsior Thursday night. We had a wonderful time and helped support the Chiefs in their charity, Special Olympics.
Shown around the table are DGM John Cook and his date, Ruby; Barb Holly, who brought along her husband, DR Bob; Tim Davison; SGW Tom Hendrickson; JGS Bob Darling; and JGD Jim Christensen and his wife, Pam. (Tim and Tom are Minneapolis Police officers, and Jim is a retired Duluth officer, currently on the faculty at Vermillion Community College.)
Several of us also left some additional money there for goods and services purchased through the silent auction!
