2/7/2013 10:39:00 AM Roaring 20's is coming to Chisago City; we welcome a new member to the family
Last week I made a comment on how the radar run was cancelled at the last moment. I should have clarified it a little more. Because the Rotary Club had hosted the run in years past, many people assumed I was referring to them. I was not. They from the beginning, had not planned on doing the run this year which everyone understood. A second party stepped forth and volunteered to do the radar run this year. That was the party I was refering to in last week’s article. If I lead you to belive it was the Rotary that backed out, I apologize.
Speaking of the Rotary, they have a really fun event coming soon. They will be hosting a throw back Casino Night on February 16. The event will take place at Strom Hall in Ojiketa Regional Park which will add to the atmosphere and theme of the “Roaring 20’s.” The public is invited to dress in 20’s apparel and come enjoy a night of social entertainment with gambling and a silent auction. There will be a raffle with great prizes as well. There is going to be music and dancing as well as Eichten’s Bistro providing hors d’ oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets may be purchased by calling 651-402-5429 and to get into the event you must know the password “Moonshine.”
If you were at Ki Chi Saga Days over the summer, you probably saw a tall shaggy blonde haired kid with a video camera. The kid’s name is Zach Sieff and all of his filming has been finalized and is available for viewing. He has posted the entire 2012 Ki Chi Saga Days on You Tube. The link is www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTUWkqgagdg. Be prepared to stop your computer and back up the video. The entire video is done in fast forward and if you think you saw yourself, just stop the video and back it up. I found myself, my kids and our friends in the video. Pretty neat.
The North Branch Sno-Barons Snowmobile Club would like to invite you to their annual Vintage Snowmobile Expo and Ride on Saturday. The expo will feature many many old snowmobiles (I should have kept my old Suzuki) for public viewing, so bring your camera. The expo runs from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and as soon as they hand out awards, they will fire them up and take a spin around JJ’s Bowl. Then they will head north to “The Fuse” in Harris. The snow and the weather should hold up this year. Hope to see you there.
Our family had a monumental event this past weekend. Our baby brother finally tied the knot. I know, people get married all the time. But when it is the last one, there is something special about it. My brother has always held a special place in my heart. Ever since Mom died, I began to reach out to him and while he is 13 years younger than me, we have become very close. This was doubled when Dad passed away 10 years ago. For those of you who know Sean, you know he is one special kid. One of the nicest, smartest, caring people you could ever hope to meet. We have spoke quite a bit leading up to the wedding and our talks always come back to mom and dad. Initially, he (we) would get sad thinking about them. There is absolutely no reason for his (our) sadness. I guarantee they are in Heaven looking down with huge smiles. Sean married Shannon who grew up in Wyoming, MN. Shannon has been dating Sean for years. For some reason they have put off marriage (probably because we pushed them too hard) until now. Shannon is such a special person and we couldn’t be happier to have her join our family.
