Region 5 commissioners packed 4,320 meals, and the board of Happy Dancing Turtle packed 2,376 meals recently at Kids Against Hunger-Brainerd Lakes Area, a nonprofit humanitarian food-aid organization dedicated to feeding hungry people in the United States and throughout the world. Volunteers pack a highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified soy-rice casserole, and those meals are distributed to starving children and their families through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide.

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.
