Happy Spring, friends and neighbors.
April showers bring May flowers – if they aren’t covered in snow. This is Minnesota. Some May days are sunny and spring like, some others not so much.
We at the Pine River Public Library are welcoming May with another free Minnesota Legacy Program, thanks to the vote of our citizens on November 4, 2008. Thank you, people of Minnesota.
This program will take place on Saturday, May 16 at 2:00 at the Riverview Life Center on Barclay. It is none other than the Twin Cities Hardingfelelag. You pronounce it. I’m at a total loss.
Still, I know what they do. This is a five piece Norwegian folk group providing traditional dance music from Norway and Western and Central Europe. In this age of searching for your roots (I know something of mine.), this concert should bring a feeling of coming home to many of our residents.
Come and join them. Stomp your feet, clap your hands, move to the tunes of your ancestors. There will even be an historical discussion and time for questions and perhaps answers.
Our Legacy Programs continue. For a complete schedule of these marvelous events, visit the Kitchigami Regional Library website: www.krls.org. Click on Legacy Events.
I absolutely know deep down that there will be an event you will want to attend. The ones that take place in our library will be attended by me.
