Gifts, funds presented to Matson family

Minnesota 100 Club board member George Peyton presented Christmas gifts and checks of $500 to each of Waseca Police Officer Arik Matson’s two young daughters, Audrina and Maklynn, according to a press release.

Matson who was critically injured after being shot in the head while in the line of duty in January, was on hand Thursday alongside his wife, Megan.

A benefit payment is made to surviving family members when immediate funds can be helpful in easing the financial burden associated with a tragic even. A payment was made to the Matson family at the time of the incident.
