Book fair coming up in Sherburn

SHERBURN — What an amazing turnout last Sunday for little Elsie Swanson’s benefit.

Thanks to all the volunteers, Sherburn Lions Club, all those individuals and businesses who donated items to the silent auction, and to the hundreds of people who came out on snow-covered roads to show their support. It was so heart-warming to see the community surround this family with so much love and compassion.


There will be a free family swim from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday at the indoor swimming pool in Sherburn. Bring your own water toys. An adult must accompany children. All families in the area are welcome.

All Martin County West schools will be in session Monday. This was to have been a day off, but is now a make-up snow day.
