A message in February

I hope you have read the Feb/March issue and tried the local history date quiz.  The answers can be found on the website.  Take a look at the calendar and attend a local event or two.   My husband and I walked over to the Beargrease start in late January since it's back in our neighborhood.  The dogs were eager to run and the snow conditions worked well for the race.  Crossing from Duluth East over to Northland Country Club had the teams on their way to their journey up north.

For the next Look at Lakeside issue which will come out in April I am looking for photos of things made by Lakeside women.  It doesn't have to be items for sale.  In fact, I'm mostly looking for items that someone made perhaps as a gift or simply for the sake of creating - a decorate cake, a quilt, and sweater.   Send a photo and I'll put it in the newsletter.  Creating is a good way to pass through the chilly winter nights and days.  We've had a few of those this year!

I'm also looking for information on the history of the Lester Park Fish Hatchery and any boating or dock activity along the Lester River.  The next deadline is March 15.  Early is better for submitting news topics and photos.

I've done some editing on the look of the front page of the website.  At some point at photo gallery or links to Lakeside videos will be added.  I do what I can to fit things in.

Happy Valentines Day! 

I love Lakeside.
