From Mayor Trude
Andover is very fortunate to welcome home an Olympic gold medalist who grew up in our midst, attending Crooked Lake Elementary, Oak View Middle School and then Andover High School before beginning college at UMD, and then joining the U. S. Olympic Women's Hockey team and winning the gold medal at the winter Olympics. Her family lives near Andover Elementary. She has other relatives in our city plus dozens will be coming to see Maddie at this special event and celebrate her victory.
