Willow River Area School 9th grader, Louie Kliniski, was involved in a dirt bike accident this summer and is bravely fighting his way back to health. Two upcoming blood drives are being held in honor of Louie Kliniski as he recovers. At each drive people will be able to write positive messages to Louie and his family.

Hello All, Cold, then hot, then cold, then hot…it almost seems lately that mother nature is having hot flashes. The tomatoes are finally starting to ripen. It seems that you go from not enough ripe tomatoes to too many ripe tomatoes. Oh well, I love fresh pico de gallo. You just chop up a great big sweet onion, chop up three or four tomatoes, a couple of jalepeno peppers, add a Tbsp of lime juice, ½ tsp of garlic powder, ½ tsp of salt, ¼ tsp of black pepper, and stir. Dip into it with some tortilla chips and some beer for the burning mouth. (In keeping with the hot and cold theme, right?) It’s wonderful. I don’t like cilantro in it. You can add it if you like it.
Boy, you should all check out the new website for the City of Willow River. It is outstanding. Diane created it. You can find all kinds of information and links on the site. Check it out at: http://www.cityofwillowriver.com. Good Job, Diane. Beckie called the hall last week and said that they will be flushing out hydrants in October, from the 3rd to the 15th. So look for those free car washes…ha. There will be notices in the paper as well.
The Youth of St. Mary’s, St. Isidore’s and Holy Angels Catholic Churches are hosting a BBQ Dinner fund raiser on Sunday, September 24, 2017 from 11am to 2pm at Holy Angels Church in Moose Lake. They will be serving bratwurst or hot dog, baked beans, chips, dessert and drink (Gluten free, dairy free and take out options available.) The cost is adults $8, ages 5-12 are $5, and 4 & under are free. There will also be outdoor games to play as well. Looks like a great excuse to get out of cooking and cleaning up lunch dishes, while supporting a great cause. Yum!
There will be a fall craft fair at the Rutledge Community Center on Saturday, October 7, 2017 starting at 9am. It’s that time of year again. Fun!
Stay safe and hug your kids!
