When Vivian Lee found out that she would be the recipient of the 2012 Becker County Outstanding Senior Volunteer award, she said, "it was a complete surprise."


"I had absolutely no idea," she added. "But it was a nice surprise. It's overwhelming ... it makes me cry."

Lee, who will be 85 in August, was presented with the award at Thursday's Becker County Fair, along with fellow Outstanding Senior award winner Charles Korinta.
