NorthShore ArtScene Nov. 14, 2009

Students from the After School program painted this mural for the Empty Bowls fundraiser for the Cook County Food Shelf held at the Congo Church Nov. 12. The fundraiser was a great success. Final figures aren't in yet, but more than $3,500 was raised for the Food Shelf.


Wildersmith on the Gunflint Nov. 18, 2009

The north woods are in the midst of November week three, and the atmospheric conditions remain as they came in, rather lamb-like. More above normal temperatures crushed what would have been a dandy snowfall last weekend when instead, rainfall in the amount of 9/10 of an inch fell at Wildersmith.


West End News Nov. 18, 2009

Polly Erickson, coordinator of the recent blood drive at Zoar church in Tofte, reports that the drive was very successful, once again. The roster was full and there were only two no shows.

Frank and Eileen Have a Snow Day

Inspired by Lake Woebegone, I was happy to have a reason (a mini-Membership Drive) to create this story. Best enjoyed while wearing mukluks and eating steel cut oats.

The Grumpy Pumpkin

Thanks to Tina and Colleen of the Wonder Weavers for teaching me this story when I was first working as a storyteller. When we performed in tandem, the Grumpy Pumpkin wore a pumpkin suit!
