50th Anniversary

RIVERFRONT CELEBRATION

Thanks to all of our friends who attended VLN’s Annual Riverfront Celebration on September 15, 2016 at the Nicollet Island Park Pavilion. Speakers RT Rybak, President and CEO, Minneapolis Foundation, and Senator Amy Klobuchar dodged the raindrops to join us and deliver inspiring remarks of thanks, hope and meeting the challenges ahead. Over sushi, walleye and “sliders” we honored our award winners, Carole Megarry, Volunteer of the Year, and Jim Baillie, Distinguished Service, and our founders and early volunteers and board members, to whom we owe so much.   To see more pictures of this wonderful event, please visit our Facebook page here.
