After serving 8 years on the Cochrane Foundation board, fellow directors honored Glen at the Annual Fall dinner for his service to the community. Glen made contributions of time and art work over the years. A few years ago, Glen generously donated the rights for us to print his “Man of Vision” painting for Cochrane Foundation purposes. Truly, a Man of Vision himself! Thank you Glen for making Cochrane a better place. cochranefoundationsm2lrg
