Veterans Memorial round table meeting

The City & Veterans Memorial Committee are hosting a community roundtable discussion on January 18, 2022, at 6:30 pm regarding the expansion of the Veterans Memorial in Central Park.  The North Branch Beautification Association’s Veterans Memorial Committee, a local 501 (c) 3 organization, is proposing to expand and revitalize the existing Veterans Memorial that is located in the southeast corner of Central Park. The expansion costs would be funded 100 percent by the Beautification Veterans Memorial Committee’s ongoing efforts to raise donations from various community members, business and organizations in support of this site.  The Veterans Committee, consisting of members from our North Branch American Legion, VFW, School District, and Beautification Association, will design and fundraise for an impactful site memorializing those who served our country.  The new Veterans Memorial would honor veterans from all five branches of the military and would occupy an area of approximately 60 feet by 60 feet (under four percent of the park’s total area) and is proposed to be placed at the southern portion of the park possibly between the gazebo and Main Street.  The Committee’s proposal is not intended to change the use of any structures such as the gazebo, playground or basketball court.

Jan Kersey

Janice “Jan” Kersey, 81, passed away after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer's Disease on December 21, 2021 in Roseville, MN. Jan was born in 1940 in Pine City, MN, and spent her childhood years in Sandstone and in Minneapolis, where she graduated in 1958 from Washburn High School. The following year she married Dave Kersey and together they embarked on a lifetime of ministry, beginning with the launch of a new Christian radio station, KFNW, in Fargo, ND. Jan worked tirelessly behind the scenes at the radio station, doing everything from hosting events to lawn care and building maintenance. Together they organized and hosted multiple tours of the Holy Land in the 1970s, and regularly visited local churches throughout the Red River Valley region to share their travels, testimonies and song.
