September 17, 2012
I am trying to blog as often as possible, but with all of this continued storm clean-up it is difficult to get on-line as often as I would like.
It's time to remind you about the big Oktoberfest celebration coming up on the second weekend out at the Roseville Resort Lodge!
Grace Lutheran Church will be hosting the event and will be sponsoring Bobby Joe's Big Brat Band on Saturday afternoon! You all remember Bobby Joe. Just in case you don't, he graduated from Roseville High School and went to UW Madison to pursue his dream of teaching high school music. He started down at Disney World working during the summers and was "discovered" by a talent scout last year. Since graduating from college, he has been all over the world touring with big bands and having the time of his life! Since is the pastor's son, the congregation got a deal for our celebration which was very nice! We're all looking forward to hearing him play "professionally" back home in Roseville. It will be the first time his folks have seen him since he left to go on tour, so we can all celebrate together!
As you know, we're still in need of some volunteers to get this weekend off the ground. I understand you probably feel like you've done nothing but give your time to the community lately, but if you could spare an hour or two to work a food tent or help with parking, set-up or clean-up we'd really appreciate it. Just give my son Mark Bauer a jingle out at the Lodge or stop by the quilt shop and we'll get you all signed up. We have free t-shirts for all who work the event and we'll have a special orientation next weekend complete with a free cook-out out at the Lodge, so come join the fun!
We're also in need of some pies for the church ladies tent. You know how people come from all around for our pies, so start baking and freezing now! Sam's orchard is full of apples and his pumpkins are ready for the picking, so now is the time to get started!
Well, speaking of getting started it's time to head down to the quilt shop-

P.S. The editor of the Roseville Times has asked me to announce that he is leaving on a two week trip to Finland on Thursday. If you have any issues with your ads or paper delivery, you're going to have to wait till he returns and resolve the problem.
