ANNOUNCEMENTS:
October, 2007 marks the 100th anniversary of the opening of
the Hennepin Canal. On September 8, many of the area towns

What EVER would I do (or all of us) without our little
“helper bees.” This was a difficult month for me
personally, but I am so very grateful for Melva, Becky and
Deb’s help this month. We’ll be able to start off July’s
entries with a bang, thanks to their great generosity and
willingness to share with our site members. BIG HUGS to
these special ladies!

Hope you’ll drop in for a visit soon. It is my pleasure to
help you in any way I am able.
