Wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful evening, it was well organized, so many great stories, and everyone seemed to have a great time. Here's a few photos for anyone the missed it.
The main speakers Mike and Ashley (in photos below), although after the formal event was done, the stories continued for a good 30-45 minutes from different people attending sharing their own prohibition tales.
And the display that was set up in the back room:
And a photo of some of the crowd in attendance, thanks again to everyone that showed up, gave their support and donations to help the Koochiching Historical Society keep doing their great work.
Thanks again and looking forward to finding out what's next!
The Thankful Loony
What better way to take a break from winter than being able to try a dozen new wines? Maybe 12 new beers but we'll get to that in a couple weeks. In the meantime, we've loaded up a myriad of different wines to try, including jumping head first into what could be called the fruitier varieties.
Here are the wines, a colorful display of different flavors and blends:
Come on down this Saturday for what's sure to be an enjoyable evening/escape from our beautiful winter surroundings.

PS: Don't forget, tonight is the exciting Rum Running/Bootlegging discussion from the Koochiching Historical Society, starting at 5-6pm.
I just heard the news
It couldn't be more blue
For I'll always remember
The song of the day a tremble
Yes it's true I didn't know you long
But I'll always remember the song
Of all the times you helped us through
With y9ur spark, always new
You may have pushed sometimes too far
Break the glass, left in shards
You were the one that brought me fishing
So much more, I am wishing
But not to be, just the way it goes
The tragic card, has been thrown
I surely wish wherever you are
So much more, than the cards
You will not be, forgotten so
Like a seed, born to grow
Your ideas and inspiration
What I'll strive, an inclination
So whatever new stage you play
I'll always remember, the song of the day
The Sad Loony
Definitely an event not to be missed, this Thursday we have a special treat thanks to the Koochiching County Historical Society. Run running on Rainy Lake during the prohibition era.
While Ranier, Voyageur Park and the area in general has a deep, rich and diverse history, this is a unique aspect that is dear to our hearts, the aspect of supporting and providing an inebriating beverage or two for those looking to unwind from the toil of everyday living.
Come on down on Thursday to learn and discuss with others about this intoxicating time in Koochiching County history.
