Patty Wetterling is the featured speaker at the Life Connections event taking place at the Willmar Civic Center on Friday, April 21st at noon. The event is free and open to the public.
Patty will share her personal story of the investigation following Jacob's abduction as well as lessons learned from working with hundreds of searching families across the nation. Patty will also describe the dynamics of child abduction, sexual exploitation and how it affects communities.
I am excited to make a difference and feel confident to do so!
“I'm honored to be part of Vision 2040 and the team that is forging the future of the Willmar Lakes Area community. We are a strong vibrant community that works hard and works together through partnerships and collaborative efforts. This spark of leadership for this is caused by people willing to risk failure to reach for success. We have seen there's no limit to what a group can do if the individuals don't care who gets the credit.”
“I'm proud to volunteer and support the efforts of Vision 2040 because creating a healthy community takes a collabortive effort. No one person or entity can create a community where people want to live and work and play, but working together we can create it. Vision 2040 started with an inclusive effort to bring together people from across our region to articulate their vision of the future of our region's communities. The goals that emerged from that vision offer everyone the opportunity to share in the collaborative work necessary to create a healthy and vibrant region--and that's a good thing for all of us.”
