From the archives of November 1909, Audrey Brake reported the following in a recent edition of the Wilmont Shopper: “The Lismore church fair, held on Thanksgiving Day, was a great success, financially and socially. They realized in the neighborhood of $1050, a sum you don’t surely expect to find on the road. Honorable mention must be made of the ladies who so richly provided for, and so gallantly served dinner and supper, which were pronounced delicious by those who sat down at the well loaded tables.”
Laura Erdman, daughter of Mike and Pam will be recovering at home following her release from the hospital. Readers can follow her progress at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/erdmanlaura. Her mailing address is: Laura Erdman. 17218 Cory Ave, Lismore, MN 56155.
