Crow Wing County Outstanding Senior Volunteers
Crow Wing County’s Outstanding Seniors do not work for the recognition, but they received some anyway, today. Donald Mink and Bonnie Franzen both expressed shock upon receiving the honor. Mink volunteers at least 15 hours per week with Essentia Health, the American Legion, the VFW, and his church. Frazen volunteers as many as 20 hours per week at The Center in Brainerd. All nominations for the award must be at least 70 years old and must have started volunteering at age 65. The two winners will compete against other “Outstanding Volunteers” at the State Fair.
