Back From Vacation!
I know it's been awhile since I have blogged, but we've been on a big family vacation and just returned last evening. Today, I have been busy recovering from the big week by doing several loads of laundry and catching up on emails! What did we do before email?
Ok, let me first let everyone know that we had a great time. This is Anna, Mark's wife out on her sailboat. She apparently has sailed for many years and was thrilled to have a chance to rent a boat while we were on the water. I think she is so brave! I'd never do something so risky. What happens if it tips over in the wind? I don't even think that thought even crossed her mind. We don't know who had a better time-Anna doing the sailing or the whole family watching her!
We heard that a big windstorm blew threw town while we were away. There seems to still be some tree limbs down that are blocking driveways and even a few roads here in town. Mayor Noonan asked me to please ask that you make plans to have to debris moved as soon as possible. They pose a problem for emergency vehicles to get through.
The volunteer firefighter recruitment effort seems to be going along quite well. As always, if you are still interested in helping out you'll need some training. The first class begins next Monday at 6pm over at the fire station. Please sign up with Gary Garrison over at the Roseville Times newspaper office to get your name on the list.
Karen Johnson would like me to announce that she is sponsoring an all day bus trip to Watertown and Miller's Creek in September. The trip will include a tour of the plant who do all of her coffee roasting, lunch on the deck at the Miller Creek Lodge that overlooks Lake Wisconsin and shopping at the outlet mall at Miller's Creek to finish off the afternoon! She will have free coffee, muffins and scones at her shop beforehand and Gene invites you to stick around for a cook-out when you get back! Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it? Stop by and sign up! Karen and Gene Johnson can give you all the details!
Well, time to get back to all that laundry!
