Dayton to speak at American Legion commander dinner

I’m sure those hardy state snowplow operators will have the roads clear in time for Gov. Mark Dayton to drive to North St. Paul tonight, where he’ll speak briefly at a dinner for the national American Legion commander, who’s touring 11 Minnesota legions.

American Legion National Commander Jimmie Foster of Alaska is on a four-day tour of Minnesota posts. He’s a Vietnam vet and was elected national commander last summer.

Foster also is having lunch today at the Golden Valley Legion Post.

Other stops for Foster:

  • Tuesday, Cambridge Post at 8 a.m. and Grand Rapids Post at noon, and dinner at the Walker Post at 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, breakfast at the Brainerd Post at 9:30 a.m.; lunch at Detroit Lakes Post at 1 p.m. and dinner at the Ashby Post at 6 p.m.
  • Thursday, breakfast at the Morris Post at 9 a.m.; Redwood Falls for a 1 p.m. lunch, and Chaska for a 6 p.m. dinner.
