Thank You from Crosslake Ace Hardware

Letter to the Editor

Small Business Saturday at Crosslake Ace Hardware was another success for the Crosslake Food Shelf. Our 12th annual Bucket sale, November 26th, raised over $2000.00 in one day with the help of ALL the customers that shopped local. For every bucket sold, the customer donated $5 to the food shelf, got 20% off their purchases and Crosslake Ace Hardware matched another $5.

The winners for the contests were: Joe F. Crosslake Husqvarna backpack blower, Sandra C. Girls Christmas package, David L. Coon Rapids, Boys Christmas package, Olivia P. Elk River Air Fryer, Kathy M. Fishing lure basket, Jeanette Crosslake Wine Package.

Appetizers were served all day, with games and ugly Christmas sweater contest for the employees. The only way small businesses succeed in any town, is the support of the residents.

Thank you.

Letter to the Editor

On election night, Cindy and I couldn’t just sit around and wait for the election results to come in, so we decided to go out and start picking up my yard signs. Sometime after midnight, I got a call from Chelsea Perkins from the Dispatch telling me we had won. Needing to take a break, we stopped by our church, where I sat and prayed for peace and strength. As I begin preparing to be a County Commissioner, I am filled with gratitude. To the people who supported me. To the people who spent time talking with me. And most importantly, to God, for giving me the strength and courage I need for this role. I want to thank my friends and neighbors in northern Crow Wing County for entrusting me with the responsibility to serve you. Now the work begins.

Jon Lubke
Crow Wing County
Commissioner - District 2
