Al Kinnunen

Seat : Honorarium
Position : Founding Chairperson
When : Founding Member to 2013

Al moved to Stevens Point in 2002 and immediately noticed the needs in the community around him. When an opportunity to arose to feed people and meet one of those needs at the place of peace, he immediately gathered his friends and signed up. At his first meal, 9 turkeys were deep fried, the driveway caught on fire twice, and Al caught the bug for helping others.

Five years later the founding leadership team of Place of Peace were ready to retire, and trusted Al to continue on what they had started. We try to continue on as he would have, being there for people in our community. We can give away all the free stuff we want, but connection and love through conversation is what Evergreen Community Initiatives strives for.
