Seward Resident Leaves Money to City

Lifelong Seward resident Bob Olson has left $100,000 to the City of Minneapolis, in addition to gifts of $50,000 to two of his neighbors and hundreds of thousands of dollars for the University library. I thank Mr. Olson for his generous contribution. It sounds like he was an avid cyclist, and I'm looking for ways to put his donation towards bicycle infrastructure - a fitting memorial for a good and generous man.
