Please join the City of Elk River in congratulating Loren Volk, for his recent recognition as Volunteer of the Month. Mayor John Dietz, who established this award program, selected Loren for his many contributions and commitment to the Elk River community through voluntary personal service.

Loren’s recognition comes after many years of actively giving to our community through his church, local schools and community events as well as just being a thoughtful neighbor who helps others in need. He has been a Minnesota DNR firearms instructor for over 17 years. He has volunteered during special programs at Guardian Angels and participated in Habitat for Humanity for several years. Loren’s legacy of volunteer service through Elk River High School Ski and Swim programs is cherished by many.

Loren Volk is an active member of Saint Andrew’s Church and serves on the Parish Council and cemetery maintenance crew. He is an active member of the Knights of Columbus (K.C.) and has taken on leadership roles such as Grand Knight and Financial Secretary, as well as coordinator for many K.C. breakfasts, Beyond the Yellow Ribbon meals and lasagna supper events.
