An early rain moderated the temperatures but not the enthusiasm for the Annual SD50-51 Family Picnic on Friday evening, September 9. Almost 90 people came to Bush Lake Park to share warm conversation, good food, and inspiring speeches.
Welcomed by SD50 Chair Pam Tucholke and introduced by Joel Quinnell, several candidates rose to speak after a delicious picnic offering. Led off by Tom Weiler, our 3rd District Congressional candidate, MN Senate candidate Doug Fulton and MN House candidate Beth Beebe all talked about the importance of the elections this fall.
Special thanks go to the organizing committee of Sarah Knapp, Joel Quinnell, Julia Tate, and Steve Curry. Once again, Louis and Becky Dennard (the masters behind MJ Barbeque) provided some fine barbeque brisket, pulled chicken, and cowboy beans. Tom Hulting also came through with his traditional roast corn. No one left hungry!
