Ron also volunteers for RSVP Volunteer Services, Boy Scouts, Knights of Columbus, St. Francis board, Mass server trainer and Prison Ministry.

I volunteer because: I love it and it is rewarding, I want to give back to my community and touch people's lives. 

My most rewarding volunteer experience: Prison Ministry, as you can see lives turned around and see hope in their faces.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
