Area children seek Kinship Partners mentors


The Brainerd lakes area is filled with generous people. Once again, this was demonstrated by the donations of warm coats, boots and cozy knit items for Kinship’s annual Coats for Kids drive. More than 800 coats were distributed to grateful families in need. At one time the line had more than 300 people waiting to claim a much-needed coat. Kinship is thankful for this giving spirit and willingness to share with others.

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.
