31st Annual Whitefish Chain Classic Boat Show
Classic boats are a long held tradition on the Whitefish Chain of Lakes and several were on display in the 31st annual White Chain Classic Boat show on Saturday, June 16th in Crosslake.
The morning started off with rain but as the skies cleared, the docks at Moonlite Bay Restaurant filled with spectators during the sunny afternoon.
Bill Terry, one of the event’s organizer said the day before that he expected 43 boats to be displayed during the day - including three from the 1920s and about a half dozen from the 1930s.
Playground dedication in Jenkins
Several residents and government officials from the City of Jenkins gathered on Saturday, June 16th to officially open and dedicate the new city playground located in Veteran’s Park along Hwy 371.
The project was a long one said Mayor Jon Lubke, who said the idea to replace and upgrade the park and playground began in the early 2000s. Donations and monetary gifts to the project were gathered over that time, then a few years ago, council member Charlie Hoffman asked at a council meeting if the city had the resources to complete the project. The answer was yes, and the city moved to complete the funding for the project. Work on installing the equipment began in September 2017 and was completed about a month later.
Lubke called the project a true community effort as several people have been involved, “This is a source of pride among the community to see this completed.”
