A ‘moving’ experience: Veterans receive long-awaited welcome home – Richmond

“To pull Freedom Park, which was essentially a field, into an excellent site … the event ran so smoothly … We kept waiting for a shoe to drop and nothing did. It was amazing.”

In addition to city staff, Ard  also thanked volunteers for their help – whether it was manning the welcome center or assisting veterans any way they could upon their arrival.

Friday was school visitation day in which students from New Richmond, Osceola, home schools, and Somerset visited.

Saturday was marked by a program which included speakers, including former Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Ray Boland.

In addition, on Saturday and Sunday, Vietnam veterans in attendance were presented special lapel pins that won’t be officially available to veterans across the country until this coming November.

Ard didn’t have an accurate count on the number of people who attended over the four days, but

Self-proclaimed ‘river nut’ will serve as grand marshal

But one hat he hasn’t worn yet is that of Prescott Daze Parade grand marshal, which he will be for this year’s parade.

“I’ve never been nominated for anything before, so it’s a nice gesture,” Shiely said. “I’m looking forward to it. It’ll be fun.”

Love of the river

Shiely, who was born and raised in St. Paul, learned to love the St. Croix River at a young age. His grandpa owned a house at the end of Prescott’s Lake Street turnaround along the river, so he and his cousins spent summers and holidays fishing, swimming and skiing, he said.

He was always intrigued when he was younger by the house on Lake Street that he and his wife Dianne have now called home for 40 years. Prescott and its riverfront are in his blood.

Since 1971 he has practiced general law in St. Paul, with an emphasis on

New pastor values outreach to community over building

Torrent’s office in a strip mall near Prescott’s Tractor Supply store is being closed, for example.

“We didn’t spend enough time there,” he said, concluding it’s amounted to a place mainly for storage–and expensive storage, at that.

Moreover, Roeder likes getting out into the community. He said church members held a party featuring a chili cook-off in an area barn, besides a party where they dressed in Halloween costumes. They’ve gone to the assisted living complex in Ellsworth, where they built a raised planter for flowers and expect to build more. On the same day, they were at the Borner Farm in Prescott, sanding down furniture and serving pizzas.

They’ve conducted Bible studies at the former, he said, and hope to feed families in need for Easter at the latter. These types of projects are included in what’s called the “Faith Works” program for the church.

Meantime, all of
