Jim Evenson recently pre- sented a $5,000 check to the Youth Baseball Association on behalf of his cousin and good friend, the late Roger Vasend.

With this donation, Roger Vasend’s total donations are at $52,000 in recent years for various youth activities in the Sisseton area. Also of note, Vasend was born in Sisseton and graduated from Sisseton High School in 1961. He continued his love of the commu- nity by establishing a legacy of giving while making frequent visits back to Sisseton from his home in Salem, OR, to visit relatives and friends.

The funds donated will go toward the recently sodded baselines at the large field in the background of the photo.
