Sonshine: Willmar man uses farming skills to volunteer

Email

Update 11 a.m.

At the age of 84, Willmar-native Don Friedlein continues to put his farming skills to use.

Raised 15 miles west of Willmar, Friedlein grew up on the farm working in the barns and fields with crops, animals and mending fences.

The fence work instilled in him as a youth has given him the opportunity to volunteer at the Sonshine Festival this week.
