Bauer earns volunteer award
The Bemidji Pioneer, Paul Bunyan Broadcasting, Ken K. Thompson and the United Way recognize "Someone Special Volunteers" who have made significant contributions to the community.
Kinship North has nominated Pat Bauer as a Someone Special volunteer.
In addition to raising her own children and working fulltime, Pat Bauer always makes time to help others. She has mentored two children in the Kinship North program and has been mentoring weekly since 2006. Even after her first mentor child graduated from the program, Bauer maintains contact with her while continuing to work with and mentor a new person. Bauer also rakes lawns for elderly people who need a little help for no charge and she is a foster parent.
