Memorial Day in Sartell began on a misty morning, which gradually turned into a slight drip-drizzle, but that kind of somber, mournful weather seemed to fit the mood of the ceremony – the sadness of the sacrifices of so many American soldiers and their families for their country.
Sartell’s yearbook for 2015 has been honored by Jostens as a National Yearbook of Excellence.
Jostens is the leading producer of yearbooks in the nation.
The company’s Yearbook Excellence program recognizes engaging yearbooks that reflect a broad representation of the student body while students who create the yearbook develop skills such as communication, collaboration, and information and communications technologies. Jostens called the Sartell yearbook “dynamic and engaging.”
A benefit has been slated for the family of Travis Brandt, 39, of Sartell, who is suffering from a rare kidney disease requiring a transplant.
The benefit will take place from 4:30-7 p.m. Sunday, June 7 at Calvary Lutheran Church, 1200 Roosevelt Road in south St. Cloud. There will be a pulled-pork dinner, fixings, a silent auction and a raffle. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children.
