VP/Chairman Fishing Committee/Facebook Admin/4th of July Parade Coordinator: Chris Block 3420 Latoka Bay Road SW
Tel: 651-307-7663
Email: chrisblockre@gmail.com

Chris’s family moved to Alexandria in 2014 after living in St Paul for 10 years. His wife Amber received a position at the Hospital as a Nurse Anesthetist. Chris is a Realtor who also invests in real estate. Both graduated from the U of M (Twin Cities). The Block family always wanted to move out of the cities into a more rural area since Amber grew up in a small town outside of Brainerd, but still close to the cities since Chris’s family is there. Living on a lake was a big draw, so Alexandria was a perfect fit. Chris’s hobbies include: fishing, hunting, traveling, & golf.
