I always take notice of the coloring activities that are printed in the Duluth paper around holidays, and this time Payton Rosbacka’s of Cromwell and Aiden and Amber Lehti’s Easter bunnies were in the paper a couple of weeks ago. Good job, kids.
I also noticed another article in the DNT about a dress and jewelry rental business called Bella Vita Coutures (“beautiful life fashions”), started by Jeanne Weimer of Cromwell and Heather Cahoon of Wright. The philosophy is with families struggling, the business allows girls and women who can’t afford formal dresses for special occasions to rent them. I’m sure you can call either of these women for more information.

The Cromwell City Council is looking for volunteers for Harvest Fest and is appointing a committee from interested parties. They will appoint a committee at the April 25 council meeting and people should let me know before that date so I can have their name on the list for the council. They may be looking for additions after the meeting also but need to have the initial group so they can start planning the Steak Fry.
There will be a Spaghetti Supper on Saturday, April 21, from 5-7 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church in Tamarack.
