Nisswa Citizens of the Year


When Cindy and John Terwilliger were asked to come to the Nisswa Area Historical Society’s Pioneer Village — John to fix the school bell rope and Cindy to take inventory — they did what they always do.

They said yes, and they showed up.

Before they got too far into their tasks Thursday, Aug. 23, the Terwilligers were surprised with flowers and the announcement that they were chosen as the 2012 Nisswa Citizens of the Year for their volunteer work for the area.
