Senator Tim Johnson presents Lester Crawford, director of the Sisseton Wahpeton Dakota nutrition program for elders, with a certificate for being an outstanding host for clients from Experience Works.

Experience Works, formerly called Green Thumb, provides training for people 55 in non-profit host agencies, and then helps them find permanet employment. Lester Crawford is training two participants, Rabbit Crawford (no blood relation) and Henry Shepherd, in his facility.

Sen. Johnson spent Sunday visiting with various groups on the Lake Traverse Reservation, reviewing programs for the elderly and other federal programs. With so much attention devoted to the effects of Katrina and Rita in the Gulf states, Sen. Johnson is looking at ongoing programs in the state he represents.
