We regret to pass along the news that MLM’s Special Events Coordinator Bill Rissmann has passed following a lengthy battle with health issues. Bill gladly took on the challenge of coordinating shore operations for MLM’s Special Events (the art fairs, James J. Hill Days, etc.). Bill created our color-coded $5 tickets to speed passenger loading and managed MLM’s ticket booth. Bill’s can-do attitude and deep support for Minnehaha will be fondly remembered and sorely missed!
Bill’s service will be held Tuesday, January 3rd (details can be accessed by clicking the link below). The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations to help end liver cancer be directed to the American Cancer Society at raiseyourway.donordrive.com/campaign/BillRissmann.
