Preston Area Community Foundation dinner, auction to be held March 24


Thu, Mar 13th, 2014
Posted in Preston Business Announcements

The Preston Area Community Foundation will hold its 8th Annual Dinner, Auction & Celebration on Monday, March 24, 2014 at the Branding Iron Supper Club in Preston, Minn. Social Hour will be hosted from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. with dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m.

A silent and live auction will take place, and auction items will be matched $0.50 on the dollar by Dan Christianson of F&M Community Bank. Admission to the event requires a ticket at a cost of $35.

The evening will also consist of a presentation by special guest speaker David Swantek who is the Cemetery Director for the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs. The focus of the presentation is “A Sacred Trust: Minnesota’s Veteran Cemeteries ... Past, Present and Future”.

Prior to being hired by the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs in July of 1996 to oversee the administration and operation of the veterans cemetery north of Little Falls, he was employed by the State of Wyoming as a cemetery worker at the Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery near Casper, Wyo. He started his career serving our nation’s veterans in 1992.

Swantek has been tasked by the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs to oversee the design and construction of three new state veterans cemeteries to be located in the northeast, southwest and southeast regions of Minnesota. These new cemeteries will provide better access to burial in a state veterans cemetery to an estimated 90,000 veterans. Construction on the first of the three proposed cemeteries began in Preston, south of Rochester, during the fall of 2013.

Swantek holds an Associate of Science Degree from Casper College and also attended the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. Swantek has three daughters: Taylor, Kendal, and Molly.
