I have been married to my wife, Kathy, for over 4 decades and we live in Stillwater, MN, just east of St. Paul. Stillwater is known as the birthplace of Minnesota. We have 2 fine sons, Charles and Andrew, 2 lovely daughters-in-law, Shelby and Megan, and 4 wonderful grandsons, Hayden, Lachlan, Kai, and William. I am a retired attorney. I joined Bruce International in 2001 and have been a member of Family of Bruce International since its inception in 2005. I became a life member shortly thereafter. I was vice-president of FOBI for 10 years before becoming president in 2018. We have also been involved in our local Scottish community through the Minnesota Scottish Fair, the Twin Cities Scottish Club, and the St. Andrew’s Society of Minnesota (now disbanded). My goals as president are to keep FOBI growing and keep it relevant to each member’s life during my tenure and beyond. Communication with members is important and we have facilitated that by rebuilding the website in 2019 and adding a Facebook page in 2020, I hope you will help us continue to be a vibrant and important organization into the future.
