Kettle River News

Congratulations to all the graduates.

The Ma & Pa Kettle Days committee met May 25 to plan for this year’s event, which will be held Aug. 13, so look for more information on what will be happening.

I hope everyone will be able to attend the Finnish Luncheon on June 21 at 12 p.m. at the Kettle River senior center. With road construction on Hwy 73, those from Cromwell will have to find a different route to get to the lunch.

The ADK teachers group is looking for children’s books in good condition to supply the Little Red Schoolhouse books at the Moose Lake food shelf. Any books you can donate to this cause will be appreciated. For more information, contact Mary Sanders.

Quite a few people attended the fire commission meeting May 26. Unfortunately, the members of the Silver Township board were not present at the meeting. These are the same township members who needed the meeting to address their arguments. The question still remains if they will sign the fire contract that all the other townships signed a year ago. Will Silver Township be covered by the Kettle River Fire Department if they do not sign the contract? That question was not answered at that meeting.

It was wonderful to see how many people attended the Moose Lake Library book sale on Friday and Saturday. The proceeds from the sale will be used for the children’s summer reading program. Although there were many books taken by all who attended, there were still many to choose from at the end of the day. Thank you to all who donated books and money for this project. I began volunteering for the book sale Saturday morning shift in about 1990, and have been able to volunteer every year since then except during the Covid shutdown. A big thank-you to all the volunteers who helped set up for the sale and packed everything up after the sale, as well as helping during the sale.
