From what I was able to observe and attend, the Annual Harvest Fest was a huge success. Our thanks to Deb Switzer and Cherie Nyberg for taking on the leadership task and for all the many volunteers who made this event possible.
Fall yoga began at the Cromwell Pavilion on Sept. 3 and continues every Tuesday from 5-6 p.m. Yoga works on developing strength and flexibility, a good workout but not aerobic or high impact. Cost is $5 a session, seniors and students under 18 are free. Proceeds go 50 percent to the city for rental and 50 percent for covering the costs of yoga gear. If you are new to the group, please come 15 minutes early. If you have questions about the yoga, call Ann Markusen at 218-644-3516 (home) or 218-428-3300 (cell).
The Tamarack Presbyterian Church will hold their Annual All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner and Salad Bar on Saturday, Sept. 14, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
