Wright/Cromwell news

There is a fact sheet available at the school on the upcoming Cromwell-Wright school district referendum taking place on Feb. 14 with voting at the Sno-Gophers building, or by absentee if requested.

The plan is for three types of improvements: No. 1, safety and security improvements, including to the main entrance and building security, and improved configuration for bus and parent pickup and dropoff areas; No. 2, site and building improvements including site drainage improvements, pavement upgrades, additional parking spaces, bathroom renovations and interior finish upgrades; and No. 3, small gym expansion.

Why now? With the last significant building updates dating back to 1995, now is the time to invest in our facilities to provide the students, staff, alumni and community with a comfortable and suitable learning and working environment. For more information go to isd95.org or contact the superintendent at [email protected].

Our sympathies to the family of Jeanette Carlson Worgren, 81, of Cloquet, who passed away Tuesday, Dec. 6 with family by her side. She was born on Jan. 25, 1941, in Cloquet to John and Vendla Carlson. Jeanette married Raymond Worgren in Bethany Lutheran Church in Cromwell on Oct. 3, 1959. She will be deeply missed.

Also, stop in for Christmas customer appreciation at the Farmers co-op in Wright for cookies, coffee and hot chocolate throughout the week of Dec. 18. The store appreciates all the local and area commerce.

A huge thank-you goes out to all who donated to the Cromwell Forest Hill Cemetery Association for the purchase of a 1.4-acre parcel of land, adjoining the west side of the cemetery. Donations matched the purchase price.

He will be conducting services the first three Sundays of the month as a part-time pastor. Lay ministers will serve on the fourth and fifth Sundays. His contact information is [email protected] or 218-464-2090.

The Bethany quilters will not meet in December, and will resume Jan. 17-18.

Remember, a good friend is like a four-leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have. Be sure to remember your friends and neighbors at the Villa Vista/Cardinal Court with cards or gifts for Christmas.

That’s all the news from “The Edge of Wright.”
