HMN Cohort VI has officially graduated! The ceremony, graciously hosted by class members Pam and Lincoln Gray at their home, took place on Thursday evening, November 29. Present were the members of Cohort VI, the Training Committee, our Bridgewater College liaison Dr. Kim Bolyard, and the Board of Directors, along with family members and guests.
The festivities began with some time for socializing, followed by a catered meal supplemented by covered dishes brought by attendees. After dinner, the roll was called and the new graduates were presented with their certificates as well as official VMN nametags and HMN t-shirts. Training Committee chair Brian Lux, Chapter President Chris Bowlen, and Chapter Advisor Paul Bugas then addressed the group in turn.
Many thanks to Brian, Morgan and Ben Martindell, and the rest of the Basic Training committee for all their hard work, to Chip Brown for organizing the meeting and the meal, and especially to the members of Cohort VI for their dedication and perseverance. Welcome to HMN!
