Bringing people together to serve, strengthen, and celebrate Edina.
Edina Community Foundation Servant Leaders
This year at the annual City of Edina Volunteer Awards Reception, we honored Jim and LaRae Hovland with a Servant Leader Award. Jim has served on our Board of Directors for 25 years, including service as our Treasurer for six years and as our President for an additional 10 years. LaRae has served as Jim's personal support team member during this quarter century, both for his work on our Board and also for his work during the past 14 years as Edina's Mayor. Jim and LaRae have been leaders in financially supporting Foundation programs as well as many of the Community Impact Funds for which we serve as a Charitable Partner. We are happy to celebrate their dedicated and enthusiastic service, leadership and generosity by honoring both of them as Servant Leaders.
