City of Scandia, MN

The Scandia Good Neighbor Award honors individuals, businesses, and civic groups who make our community a better place to live.

Scandia Mayor Christine Maefsky presented a Good Neighbor Award Proclamation to Darlene Holtgreve at the January 17, 2023 City Council meeting. 

Darlene was nominated by Patti Ray, who described Darlene’s generous contributions as a volunteer member of Scandia’s Sister City Committee. In promoting the relationship between Scandia and Mellerud, Sweden, Darlene made over 370 Tomte Christmas tree ornaments for the local holiday shopping event and sent a few dozen to Mellerud, passed out candy in the Taco Daze parade, and helped bake and distribute cinnamon buns for Scandia's Cinnamon Bun Day.

Please join us in thanking Darlene for her tireless volunteerism, gifting the community with her sunny attitude, and demonstrating the many qualities of being a Scandia Good Neighbor.
