Leadership Skills.

In support of Patty Norgaard

Letter to the Editor

Caring, Economy, Environment, Physical Responsibility .....This is what Patty Norgaard, who is running for mayor in Crosslake, MN., is all about!!

I was the first woman to be a member of the Crosslake Council 20 years ago! It was a huge learning and challenging experience of which I will never forget and was very proud to be active in our community! Needless to say it took a while for the rest of the council to accept a woman within their environment! I wasn’t very knowledgeable at first but, did gain respect and was known as the council member with “common sense.” Since then I stayed interested in our town and still care about the leadership and wish more women would show an interest in our City of Crosslake!!

I can see PATTY being a great leader in seeing that things get done once again and be there for all of us who love Crosslake!!

Letter to the Editor

The series of articles in the September 9, 2020 Brainerd Dispatch about businesses in the Brainerd Lakes area gave a very positive picture of the area. There is another culture by some of the area businesses.

Maintenance is an important part of home ownership. When contact was made with some area trades individuals to schedule routine maintenance of the 8 calls made. 4 never returned a call and 3 indicates they would come look at the maintenance project but never showed up. The 8th call was positive and the project was completed much to my appreciation and satisfaction. A similar tale could be said about another summer time project when only 1 out of 3 returned a call and the single return caller did the task. Makes one wonder if workmanship matches the indifference of some.

Thank You from the Whitefish Chain Yacht Club

Letter to the Editor

On behalf of the Whitefish Chain Yacht Club (WCYC) I would like to thank Richard and Jessica Eide and the staff at Moonlite Bay Restaurant for their generous support of the WCYC.

On August 22, 2020 the WCYC sponsored a boat parade on the chain. WCYC members and non-members participated in this fun event. At the conclusion of the parade, Moonlite Bay provided lunch for the participants, with dock side dining using COVID-19 protocols for safe interaction and dining.

Because of the generosity of Jessica and Richard, we were able to use money collected for our “Light the Buoys” campaign.

Community support comes in many ways. Our board is grateful for the continued support we receive from so many businesses and members and especially, Moonlite Bay and Jessica and Richard Eide.

Thank You from the Lakers Lions

Letter to the Editor

The Lakers Lions extend our gratitude to area residents, visitors, local businesses and institutions for their generous support of our scholarship fund. Our annual Corn Feed has always been the primary fund-raiser for our scholarship program. This year it was cancelled for the first time. However, thanks to the Pickled Loon and the exceptional  response from donors, we will be able to continue to fulfill our commitment to area college students without cutbacks.

We are proud to serve this great community.

Emily, Outing and Fifty Lakes Lions
