Lose your junk, visit a market

This weekend in Center City is your chance to get rid of your fall clean-up clutter.  AAA Appliance and Recycling is holding their annual fall recycling day.  It runs Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is held in the lower parking lot at Chisago Lake Lutheran Church.  This is our chance to get rid of stuff that has been cluttering our garages and closets all summer and get ready for winter (yuk).  I would list the items they accept but the list is too long. Please see page four to see the long list of items.  See you there.


We only have a few weeks left to enjoy our local farmers markets. It has been a brutal summer for these farmers with incredibly dry conditions.  They still managed to produce some wonderful fruits and vegetables for our enjoyment.  Come on out and visit any of the local markets and support friends and neighbors.


There is still time to get your tickets to the annual Chisago Lakes Lions Waffle Feed.  The meal will feature belgian waffles with toppings of your choice as well as sausage, milk, juice and coffee.  There will be Halloween treat bags for the kids. 

The meal is October 21 at Chisago Lake Township Hall (12400 316th Street Lindstrom) from 8am to 11:30am.  Tickets are $9 in advance by calling 612-501-1504.



The very popular St. John’s Fall Craft Fair in Stacy doesn’t take place for another two weeks or so, but if you are a vendor and would like to be included in their great event, you can register by emailing Nancy at presnelson@aol. com.  She will make sure you get in the show and get a good spot.


If you get a chance, stop by and welcome the new Chisago Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau, Executive Director, Sarah Soderlind, and Office Manager Jana Swenson.  They are both brand new and I am positive they will become a great asset to our local business community.


What a bummer-number the weather did on the Wildcat’s homecoming festivities Friday evening.  The Wildcats had their hands full with a scrappy Zimmerman  team that was dialed in, but to have storms come and stop the game and fireworks after was a let down. Great job by the community coming out in full force- the stadium was absolutely packed. As busy as I can ever remember.


It didn’t seem like switching to purchasing game tickets online or on your phone seemed to stop the fans.  There is a nice write up about the school board and how they decided to eliminate the handling fee that quite a few people got worked up over.  Good job school board - keep up the good work.
