Much obliged - 10th annual DFL Paul Wellstone memorial fall dinner
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

A huge thank you to all who participated Oct. 20 in making the 10th annual Crow Wing/Cass County DFL Paul Wellstone memorial fall dinner a great success. Fun and good times were had by all. Special thanks to keynote speaker Governor Mark Dayton, speakers Jim Klobuchar for U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, Attorney General Lori Swanson and 8th District Congressional candidate, Rick Nolan. Thanks to the Nisswa Legion and the fine service and wonderful food provided by the Red, White and Blue Catering Service and staff.


We also enjoyed short speeches from current Representatives John Ward and John Percell and State Senate and House candidates from Senate Districts 10, 9 and 5.

We appreciate the extra large turnout and continued support and hope to see you next year!
