Even if I try my best to proofread my news column there are mistakes from time to time. This time I had the wrong cemetery. It’s Lakeview that is looking for donations, not Lakeside. But, I’m sure you can understand the confusion when both cemeteries have such similar names. So, donations for the Lakeview Cemetery (the one located within the Wright city limits) can be sent to the Lakeview Cemetery Association c/o Pam and Bob Rahja, 1445 Hart Road, Tamarack MN 55787. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Sorry for the misinformation, although I’m sure any of our area cemeteries can use the help.

Jim and Julie Gronbeck are proud to announce the birth of their grandson, Owen Daniel Krenz, born to their daughter Andrea and husband Dan. Congrats to all. Jim was pastor at Bethlehem and Bethany 1984-1991.
