Easter Egg Hunt - Thanks Volunteers!

Thanks to the volunteers, including Lisa Houchins and Kelly Farrell, who organized today's great Easter Egg Hunt in Arbre Park.  The turnout was bigger than ever and all had a great time!

$40 Spring De-Thatching/Raking Service

Bud Schneider is offering discounted machine de-thatching/raking services again this spring.  Tony Schwab has negotiated group rate pricing with Bud.  The cost is the same this year as in previous years: $40 per yard. 

Many residents have been hiring Bud Schneider for the last few years and he's done a great job.  Sure beats raking by hand!

Please contact Bud Schneider at (651) 429-6896.

Hamburger Nights at the American Legion

Every 4th Wednesday of the month from 5-8pm, the Legion hosts a special fundraising hamburger dinner to raise funds for a very good cause, the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Network, and each month community businesses have the opportunity to funds and sponsor the event. This month Boyd's Promos is sponsoring the event. For just $5, you can enjoy a delicious grilled hamburger made to order, along with fries. It's a great meal and a great cause in helping those that work so hard to defend our freedoms.

For those of you that are not familiar with the organization, Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is a comprehensive program that creates awareness for the purpose of connecting Servicemembers and their families with community support, training, services and resources.

They do this by:
1. Creating awareness through the Yellow Ribbon Community Campaign and synchronizing sustainable community support networks.
2. Connecting and coordinating organizations, agencies and companies to provide resources and support to Servicemembers and their families.
3. Delivering a series of formal Yellow Ribbon Training events to Servicemembers and their families before, during and after deployment.
4. Providing an opportunity for Minnesotans to support Servicemembers and their families.
Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is united to bring Servicemembers all the way home.
