99th Birthday bash
Minot Mayor Shaun Sipma (left) and others from the Minot community helped John Sinn (right) celebrate his 99th birthday with a birthday party on Monday at Visit Minot. Sinn is a World War II veteran who worked many years for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is an active volunteer in the Minot community, still helping to keep the Scandinavian Heritage Park looking its best. Sinn was largely responsible for designing many of the features of the park and has helped maintain it for 30 years. Sinn also maintains a beautiful home garden. Sipma, a former neighbor of Sinn’s, shares a birthday with Sinn.
