We would like to extend a very warm thank you to the Nisswa Area Historical Society for opening their doors to our Kinship Partners and Blueprints program. A wonderful day was had by all touring the pioneer village, learning about days of "old," helping design quilts, making rope and allowing the kids to get hands on with all the animals.
The Nisswa Historical Society is open Wednesday thru Saturday-10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Labor day weekend. Thank you for supporting the mission of Kinship Partners!

We acted as residents needing medical assistance in our home. The Mission Township Volunteer Firefighters came to provide first responder treatment. As volunteers, being fully awake and cognizant, we were able to realize what wonderful, extremely competent care they were providing.
They thanked us - but our thanks goes out to them. With so many senior citizens here we know that a vast majority of the calls they receive are medical in nature. We feel very secure in knowing that they are ready to help, with so many highly trained responders, in an actual emergency.

Thank you to all the students, staff and families from Baxter School who donated items for our silent auction baskets for the July 25th Relay for Life at Don Adamson Field. We invite everyone to come down and participate in an emotional and fun-filled evening to remember, celebrate and fight back in our battle against cancer.

I want to thank the Mills company for their one page pull-out in Sunday's (June 29) paper thanking all of our courageous men and women serving our country in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. On the opposite side of the pull-out is the American flag.
I will be mailing this page to my son in Iraq. He often feels the part he plays in the war effort isn't every important, but I tell him that every soldier makes a difference regardless of what their job is. When he receives this page, he will be able the understand a little clearer that we, as a community, are proud of what he's doing. I know I am proud to live in a community that appreciates the sacrifices made by our military. I will ask him to share this insert will everyone in his company, so that they, too, will know they are appreciated. My only regret is that it will take three to four weeks for him to receive his package.
There really are kind and caring people in this world that do stop to help strangers.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the two guys that stopped on June 11 on County Road 8 on a very stormy, rainy day to help my daughter when she rolled her car. You were kind enough to help her get out and get her into your van and try to calm her down and keep her warm until help arrived. We appreciate that so much.
I am sorry I did not stop to say thank you or even get your name or the name of your company truck. You were gone by the time I came to find you. Also, to another lady who stopped to check to see if she was OK...I did not even think to get any names.
We are so grateful to you strangers that went out of your way! My daughter is fine and came home with a very bruised body but no injuries.
