A community homecoming party was held at the Vadnais Heights Commons March 8 for winter olympic athletes Hannah and Marissa Brandt. The sisters had their photos taken with visitors and gave autographs before and after a series of speeches from their parents, former coaches, childhood friends and the mayor of Vadnais Heights. Following the ceremony, Hannah skated with youth hockey players in the Community Park ice rink recently named in the Olympians' honor. — Photos by Paul Dols
