I had the opportunity to work with and alongside a couple of young men when we had our DFL Senate 13 meeting at Kennedy School on March 24.

We had asked the Boy Scouts to present the flags, lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance, and serve coffee and donuts.

Adam Novack and Soren Haaland did an admirable job in all of the above. They collected money keeping track of two different funds. They worked from early Saturday morning to midafternoon.

They did it all competently, cheerfully and courteously!

Any time we elders feel anxious, worried or concerned about the direction our country is heading, we should sit down and visit some young folks.

Thanks again Adam and Soren for helping us in our civic duty as citizens in this great country!
