Event of the Week

There hasn't been a lot of quiet time since returning from Duluth. The "event" of the week so far was the National Night Out event at Parkview. Thanks to the Social Ministry committee, youth and others for making it a success. The goal was simply to give an opportunity for the folks at Parkview to get to know each other a little better. I talked with many people last night for the first time. One man has been a resident of those apartments for 14 years, another for 13. We brought food and invited people from the neighborhood. 92 year old Glenna came over, escorted by Cokato Corn Carnival royalty and candidates. We met a Vietnamese woman who speaks hardly any English and a Grenada veteran who wants to do some visiting at Cokato Manor. Thanks again to all who helped out. And thanks to Becky Sorenson for the pictures!
