Weekend events remember Chad Hansen

A series of events this Saturday, Sept. 22, will pay tribute to Chad Hansen, a Forest Lake man who passed away at the age of 37 in a snowmobile accident in January of 2011, and will raise money for the memorial fund established in his name.

A  blood drive will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Forest Hills Golf Club. It will be put on by the American Red Cross, Chad’s employer. A carnival for kids will run during the same hours. A golf outing there will have a shotgun start at noon. Registration includes lunch and dinner. Wilcox Chevrolet Cadillac out of Forest Lake is sponsoring a hole-in-one contest with a brand new 2013 Chevy Malibu on the line.

The events continue into the evening with a spaghetti dinner from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Forest Lake VFW. A silent auction and raffle will go until 9 p.m. The Rockin’ Hollywoods will entertain from 8-11:30 p.m.
