Ice Tee Open prevails over polar vortex
“I’d like to pay to NOT play!” was a familiar theme this year at the 5th Annual Ice Tee Open Golf Tournament. As the temperature rose to minus 4, and the northwest wind did not abate, fifty hearty golfers braved the cold and teed off on the frozen course.
Despite the polar vortex, $22,000 the highest amount ever, was raised to support the mission of Camp Knutson. Silent auction donations were at an all-time high.
Jessica Eide of Moonlite Bay expressed her emotions at the check presentation, "We were so worried about this event, several persons called to ask if [it] was cancelled, we are just so pleased to be able to present you with this highest check ever. Thanks to all of you!”
Lucy Kaplansky returns to Grassroots Concerts Series Mar. 7
Lucy Kaplansky returns to the Grassroots Concerts stage after almost 15 years Friday, March 7. The 7:30 pm concert will be at the Live Well Nightclub and Coffee Bar in Nisswa.
Blending country, folk and pop styles, Kaplansky has the unique ability to make every song sound fresh, whether singing her own sweet originals, covering country classics by June Carter Cash and Gram Parsons or singing pop favorites by Lennon/McCartney and Nick Lowe.
Raised in Chicago, Kaplansky began singing publicly as a teenager, traveling to Norway to perform as a country singer. After finishing high school, she took off for New York City, where she became part of the renaissance of the Greenwich Village folk scene. Compatriots included Suzanne Vega, The Roches, Steve Forbert and John Gorka as well as her frequent duo partner Shawn Colvin.
