New faces at Salvation Army


The Brainerd Salvation Army has two new faces.

Capts. Scott and Shanais Strissel took the ministry post after Maj. Jeff and Cindy Strickler were transferred to the Salvation Army in the Twin Cities area. The Strissels have four  children, Isaiah, 12, Zech, 10 and 3-year-old twins Ethan and Isabella.

The children have already “gotten their feet wet” by helping out with projects since the Strissels’ first day on the job last month.

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.
