A City of Coon Rapids employee has been recognized for her work in the community off the clock.
Last week, Lori Anderson was given the "Friend of the League" award from the ABC Chapter of the League of Women Voters. The award was given to Anderson in recognition for her work founding the group Transformative Circle, a non-profit that celebrates diversity in the community.
For the past three years, Transformative Circle has hosted a multi-cultural Night to Unite event in Coon Rapids. The Transformative Circle holds free dinner meetings on the first Thursday of each month from 6-8:30 p.m. in the Coon Rapids Civic Center.
