On January 20th 2017 Friends of Francis held an event to celebrate Mayor James P. Francis at the Historic Concord Exchange. A star studded event with over 100 in attendance and food from Wishfull dancing provided by Complete Music.
Bob Lange, Don Shelby, TD Mischke, Joe Soucheray & the Rookie came to give their congratulations to the new mayor. Hosted by Adam Carter, these men from KSTP & WCCO radio talked about James P. Francis and agreed to come back next year and perform a radio play.
Mayor James P. Francis made it known that his intentions are to do this event annually and give proceeds to charity. The people in attendance had the opportunity to pick from four local groups, SSP Lions Club, SSP/IGH Rotary, SSP Jaycee’s and Kaposia Days. The winner was Kaposia Days and will be the recipient of all proceeds for NEXT Year’s event.
