GRAND KNIGHT DENNIS NAGORSKI of the Knights of Columbus presented Big Lake Chief of Police Joel Scharf and Becker Chief of Police Brent Baloun with a donation of prescription drug drop-boxes for each city.

Now our residents have a safe way to dispose of their unwanted or out-dated medications. (Photo by Jennifer Edwards).
