I hope you and your family. had a wonderful Easter. You couldn’t ask for better weather! Let’s hope this weather is here for good. Somehow I have a feeling it’s not. I think we had snow on my daughter’s birthday last year - that was in June.
For those of you who have asked us when the compost site at the wastewater treatment facility, will open, you are in luck. Beginning April 14, the compost site will be open: •Wednesdays 2pm - 7pm (or dusk, whichever comes first) •Saturdays 9am - 4pm •Sundays 1pm - 4pm
Friday I got the call to get my vaccination. All of you non-vaccine people can begin your name calling now..it’s okay I am a big boy. Thrifty White had some openings and I was able to get mine in the afternoon. Say what you will about getting a shot or not getting a shot, but this virus has taken a lot away from me personally as I am sure it has for most of you. I still have yet to properly say goodbye to my grandmother who passed away at the beginning of the pandemic. No funeral, no visitation nothing. I have seen my nephew exactly twice since he was born and he is a year and a half now. So I am on board with a shot if it will make all of this crap (I have much worse words) go away. If this pandemic is made-up as some of you think it is, this is one powerful lie - the biggest of all time. I need normalcy, plain and simple. Get your shot, don’t get your shot, I don’t care. For me it was a no-brainer. The people at Thrifty White were so great to work with. So friendly and very efficient.
This is the last week to donate to the Family Pathways FoodShare Month campaign. They are super close to their goal of $150,000 to stock the shelves of their nine food sites. For the first time ever, you can now donate via text message. All you need to do is text FAMPATH to 41444. You will be prompted to enter your donation from there. Thanks again for thinking of our local food shelves.
As we make our way back from the abyss, there are a few events that will take place this summer that sound amazing. After spending what seems like 153 months locked inside staring across the top of my UNO cards at my wife, we can finally get outdoors for some legitimate entertainment. Lindstrom’s Harmony in the Park and St. Croix Falls’ Music on the Overlook are both happening this spring and summer. Finally. To enjoy music outdoors with friends will be so great. I have a feeling this pandemic is going to make us appreciate the little things in life that we have taken for granted all of our lives. Who would ever think we would yearn for a converstion with a neighbor in the driveway. But here we are.
