From the president of the Forest Lake Lions Club to the hall of the State Capitol in St. Paul. That’s where volunteers came from last Friday to take a pie in the face to help American Legion Post 225 raise money for the 2014 Fourth of July parade and fireworks. The event also included a fish fry with members of the Forest Lake Drum Line serving hungry visitors.

Jay displays their handiwork.
State Rep. Bob Dettmer of Forest Lake also took one for the team. Dettmer, an assistant wrestling coach at Forest Lake High School, was in his ready position prior to taking it in the chops.
Kevin McDowell of Wyoming won the bid to toss a pie in Dettmer’s face.
Dettmer reacts to the debris and gets some help from Robin Kunkel, first vice at Post 225, in cleaning up.
