The annual Mathias “Math” Fischer Memorial Scouting Breakfast will be 6:45-8:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 25, at Valleywood Golf Course Clubhouse, 4851 McAndrews Road, Apple Valley.
The event is held in memory of the late Math Fischer, the founder of Apple Valley Red-E-Mix, now known as AVR Inc., and longtime supporter of scouting. It is sponsored by his daughter Liza Robson and son Peter Fischer of AVR Inc.
On hand for the event will be scouts from Troop 205, scout leaders and supporters. In 2016, over 50 people attended the event, which raised approximately $10,000. The goal for 2017 is to raise $15,000 with more than 70 attendees.
Guest speaker will be Apple Valley Police Chief Jon Rechtzigel. He will discuss “Engaging Our Youth.” His department has promoted Teen Academy, mentoring, the school resource officer program and community service officers. Rechtzigel is celebrating his 30th year in law enforcement, having started as a patrol officer in Apple Valley in 1987.
Chairpersons for the fundraiser are Jim Friend of Anchor Bank and Robson. Serving on the committee are Rechtzigel and Fischer, along with Robert Hannah Sr., former scouting professional; Thomas Robak, Sterling State Bank; Jason Zienty, scouting representative from Northern Star Council; and William H. Tschohl, fundraiser.
