Thanks to all of our friends who attended VLN’s Annual Riverfront Celebration on September 14, 2017 at the Nicollet Island Park Pavilion. Speaker Kevin Lindsey, Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Human Rights delivered inspiring remarks about the work of his department that needed to meet the challenges ahead. Over sushi, walleye and kabobs, we honored our award winners, Stephen Rathke, Volunteer of the Year, and Joe Dixon, John Levine Distinguished Service Award recipient. The weather cooperated and we were able to enjoy dessert and coffee on the patio while watching the sun set over the Mississippi river.
