About 150 people from all over the Eighth Congressional District attended a "thank you" dinner for retired U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan, who retired this year after serving the district since 2013.

State Rep. Mike Sundeen, DFL-Esko, was the master of ceremonies. Local party dignitaries such as former legislators Don Samuelson and Loren Solberg joined former congressman Bill Luther and former state attorney general Lori Swanson in praising Nolan's accomplishments in Congress. Swanson, who ran for the DFL party endorsement for governor with Rick Nolan as her running made, made the keynote speech.
