Pictured Above Richard Babler is presented with the US Flag flown over this historic site from Spring 2012 thru Spring 2013. Richard is being presented the flag by Chairman Jim Andrie and Tim Paquin for all his years of work. Richard was appointed to the board in 1987 and has served since that time. I am proud as the Chairman of the Board to honor Richard for his many years of service.
I also want to Thank the many Fourth Degree Knights from the State on Minnesota who support this site. All of the work that has been done at the site is through the generous donations of time, talent and money. This is truly a big undertaking as could not be done with out you. For myself, when I visit the Fort Site, I think of all of those who have gone before us. From 1732 thru 1756 it was French Fur traders; in 1908 it was rediscovered; In 1949 the 4th Degree Knights took this on a project. Thank you to all the Knights alive and deceased who have worked, prayed and enjoyed this beautiful site.
Sincerely, Jim Andrie (Chairman)
