CAMP RIPLEY — Camp Ripley leadership begins annual community updates — Camp Ripley 101 — to surrounding communities starting next week.

“Providing the Camp Ripley 101 to our local communities is essential to us,” said Army Brig. Gen. Lowell Kruse, the Minnesota National Guard's Assistant Adjutant General and Camp Ripley's senior commander, in a news release. “We recognize how our neighbors support us, and we appreciate our partnerships with these communities.”

The Camp Ripley 101 is a presentation created each year highlighting Camp Ripley’s mission, construction updates, current leadership, accomplishments, and partners both on and off base. The brief covers the larger public and training events occurring for the remainder of 2022. Additionally, the 101 covers Camp Ripley’s economic impact on the area and the environmental program’s efforts to support conservation for the base and the surrounding area.

“One way to show our appreciation is to engage with the community,” said Kruse. “These engagements provide the yearly opportunity to meet our communities and to communicate with our partners about what is happening at Camp Ripley."

“We take pride in our community engagement, and this is a part of our efforts to reach out to the communities and let them see and understand our base more,” said Army Chief Warrant Officer Two Kristin Tritz, Camp Ripley’s director of the Joint Visitor Bureau, in a news release. “We enjoy interacting with the community, and being able to showcase what Camp Ripley has to offer to our military as well as our local community partners, is something we look forward to every year.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at www.brainerddispatch.com. News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
