Our Memories of Maynard Johnson

By Andrea Kaderlik


We  are forever grateful for the impact Maynard Johnson had on each of our lives.  Maynard Johnson was born in 1921 and passed away this month (July 16, 2017) at the age of 95. Maynard married his sweetheart, Madeleine (who passed away January, 2017), and together, they raised their family in Minnesota. Maynard made many contributions to our local Lakeville community, which included a vision for the Airlake Industrial Park & economic development of Lakeville, Minnesota. He was instrumental in starting what is now known as "Pan-o-Prog"   (Panorama of Progress), as Lakeville's annual community celebration. Maynard was even the Grand Marshall of the event in 1983!

Our companies' owner and co-founder, Jack Matasosky, has long considered Maynard to have not only been his mentor, but a lifelong friend, with a relationship that began when Jack was hired by Maynard in 1978. After Jack co-founded APPRO Development, and later, CERRON Properties, Maynard continued to be a trusted adviser and valued confidante .

 We hope you enjoy learning more about this fascinating Lakeville pioneer, who is forever in our hearts!

School Construction Projects: CHA, Lakeville, MN Update

School Construction Projects: Christian Heritage Academy (CHA), Lakeville,  MN Update


The new Christian Heritage Academy building located at 7320 175th Street, Lakeville, Minnesota, is really starting to look like the school that had only previously been a picture on a page. I took a tour of the site today with the project manager, Cam Luong, and could literally envision the staff and the children coming through the front doors, walking the halls, sitting in the classrooms and playing in the gym.  The whole space has a lot of open space and natural lighting which made it feel both welcoming and warm despite its current unfinished state.
