We recently celebrated Viola Maehren’s 100th birthday outside her residence in St Paul.
Viola Maehren was an early organizer of LEA , and on the LEA board for many years. LEA has been informing voters since 1972 on the basis of its Credo, supporting American founding principles and ideals. On the left, she is animated at the 2016 LEA Awards Banquet.
Viola is one of those high-energy, highly principled, enthusiastic citizens with the passion to makes things happen. She Viola was an election judge for many years for Ramsey county, and is an active volunteer making the altar breads at Saint Agnes Church. She helps prepare 2,000 hosts each week.
She won an Eagle Award in 1975:
“Eagle Forum’s mission is to enable conservative and pro-family men and women to participate in the process of self-government and public policymaking so that America will continue to be a land of individual liberty,respect for family integrity, public and private virtue,national independence, constitutional government, and private enterprise.We honor Eagle Forum’s citizen volunteers for their dedicated work at every level of government since 1972.–Phyllis Schlafly”
We honor Viola’s commitment, energy, and service.
