Congratulations to Nicole and Ed on the birth of their first child: Ian Robert Fogarty (Ian means God is Gracious), who arrived at 9:04 a.m. June 26, weighing 6 pounds, 15.5 ounces and is 20.5 inches long! Ian was in the NICU as he worked out a couple of issues, but he and mom are doing well thanks to all of dad's help and the awesome staff at the hospital. Nicole's parents are Roger and Kim Suhonen.

Congratulations to Linda Dahlman as she retires from Moose Lake School on June 30. She has had a long career in school finance and office work. She started out at the old Wright School back in the 1970s.
