I just received a letter from John and Carol Esbjornson asking for some information on old friends from Wright. They will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on June 28. Eddie Hamren was their best man and they have lost track of him. Would any of you be able to answer this and other questions they might have? Their e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org and phone is 320-235-4630.
The Harvest Fest Steak Fry will be held Friday, June 15, from 4:30 -7 p.m. at the Cromwell Park Pavilion. Cost is $12. Proceeds will be donated to the Pavilion Park Playground.
Edna Samuelson sold the farm and has now moved to Duluth.

Please feel free to call me, too, for more information. My number is 218-357-2385.

I just got home from a three-day Lutheran Women of the ELCA Convention/Gathering at UMD. It was a truly wonderful event and I wish more women of the Northeast Synod could have been able to attend. I think there were over 200 there at times during this event which takes place each June.
Preliminary plans are being made for a “Let Freedom Ring” Celebration at Villa Vista/Cardinal Court on Tuesday, July 3, at noon. You will hear more later, but put this special event on your calendars and also bring a bell to ring for this event. This is a nationwide event and it will be fun to participate in it.
That’s all the news from Lake Celebratethe4th and have a great week.
