>There seems to be a lot of misinformation on the upcoming meeting about the roundabout in Cromwell, but there is more to this meeting than the roundabout.
The CCHS is also looking for donations of old photos, miscellaneous old antique items, old dolls and doll clothing and other clothing. With this in mind, Alice Lake donated her 1958 wedding dress and photo. <
I applied last month for a Lake Country Power Operation Roundup grant for quilt batting for the Bethlehem Lutheran Quilters and we were given that $500 grant.
The Dollar General Store is in the beginning stages of being built just east of the school bus garage in Cromwell. The CACC'S Gazebo next to Northview Bank is also in the process of being built, too. Then, a huge warehouse building is being built just north of Cromwell on Highway 73.
The Farmer's Cooperative Co. purchased D. C. Behren's Store building, organized and opened it for business June 3, 1919. Shares were $10 each and it was incorporated with $10,000 and annual sales of $60,000. Shares are still only $10, and you must have a share to be a voting member of the co-op.
> The women of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Wright are continuing to collect items for the Carlton County Crisis Shelter, especially diapers. Just drop them off in the fellowship hall. They are still collecting "Socks for Detox" and any other donations for Seafarers, youth and other causes.
Vendors are needed for the 53rd Annual Wrong Days In Wright community celebration's flea market July 20 and 21. Please call Jennie K. Hanson at 218-357-2385 or 808-366-6582 if interested. Space rent is only $15 and you can set up wherever you want — outdoors or in the Big Top, but not in the park's log pavilion. Bring your own tables. Spaces are first-come, first-served. Thanks. The Wrong Days in Wright Buttons are here with the theme "Oh, Say Can You See, Wrong Days 53."
<. One of the biggest changes in Cromwell will be the closing of the Country Inn after over 50 or 60 years in business. Yes, this restaurant has had several names and owners over the years, but now the time has come to close the doors on this iconic business as of May 28.
p>The Cromwell Area Community Wide Clean Up Day has been rescheduled for May 19, when we hopefully will have no snow on the ground. Meet at the Cromwell Park Pavilion and bring your own tools and rakes.
Well, we finally did it! The temps are now above 50 degrees for the first time since Oct. 23, and the robins, swans and sandhill cranes have been seen by many folks.
