Friends and family of Richard Thiel – the former board chairman of the Rush City Food Shelf who passed away in February – gathered at the Chisago County Fairgrounds in Rush City Aug. 18 for the unveiling of a bench dedicated to him. 

The bench was placed near a garden by the historical building, where Thiel did much of his work, in memory of his long and tireless service to the Rush City Food Shelf. (L to r) Paul and Hayden Kahring, Richard’s son-in-law and granddaughter; Carolyn Thiel, Richard’s wife; and Sarah Kahring, Richard and Carolyn’s daughter; were on-hand for the unveiling.
