Event at nature center recognized Lund for winning the League of Minnesota Cities' C.C. Ludwig Award.
Fridley Mayor Scott Lund missed his first chance at public recognition for winning a statewide award in July, when historic floods swamped the Duluth area, where the League of Minnesota Cities was holding its annual meeting.
Friends, colleagues and supporters gathered instead in considerably drier drought conditions last week at the Springbrook Nature Center in Fridley to recognize Lund for receiving the LMC's C.C. Ludwig award for mayors of cities of more than 10,000 residents.
Among those in attendance on Sept. 11, 2012 were Dr. Bill Burns, Fridley city manager; Anoka County Commissioner Jim Kordiak; Anoka County Attorney Tony Palumbo; and members of the Springbrook Nature Center Foundation, Fridley Lions, the Lee Carlson Center and nMotion Dance Center.
Sponsors included the Fridley Knights of Columbus, Fridley Lions, Springbrook Nature Center Foundation, Lee Carlson Center and the Residents for Maintaining Water Systems.
That's according to Mandy Meisner a volunteer with Lund's re-election campaign, who also provided this quote from Lund's speech:
"Your accolades motivate me to make sure I earn them. I will continue to work hard to serve my community."
