VCSU to Host Gathering for Remembrance to Honor Buehner
Valley City State University will host a Gathering for Remembrance to honor the life of the late Dan Buehner at 7:30 p.m. today in the W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse on the VCSU campus.
Buehner, a VCSU senior from Blaine, Minn., died Monday in a rafting accident on the Sheyenne River in Valley City. A business administration major, Buehner was the starting catcher on the VCSU Viking baseball team.
The gathering Wednesday night will include remarks by VCSU President Steven W. Shirley, athletic director Jack Denholm and baseball coach Casey Olney.
VCSU student leaders from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes will share remarks, as will the Rev. Emmy Swedlund of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Valley City.
A memorial video will be shown, and several of Buehner’s friends and teammates will speak. There will also be a time for open sharing by those assembled.
