Hello! I hope you are enjoying the current climate. The Farmer’s Almanac suggested this winter would be like the last one. Let’s hope they continue to be wrong on the temperature part. We don’t need -30 degrees, but we could use some more snow.
The Old School Art Center’s Opening was fantastic. About 120 to 150 people came through the gallery and saw the beautiful collages of Judy Bergerson as well as the many other artists. We had great music from the Procrastinators and Johnny Fingers, delicious snacks and refreshments. Being back in the main gallery was a joy and the atmosphere was happy and celebratory. Thanks to everyone that came out to celebrate north woods art.
Keep looking for more showings. There are great things coming and I will keep you posted.
About 100 people gathered to celebrate the union of Micki Johnson (Joe Vink’s daughter) and David Simecek on January 17th at the New Life Church in Aitkin, MN. The bride looked lovely and it was great to have Joe out and about as he walked her down the aisle. Joe’s son Brian and his girlfriend Carol were also in attendance at this lovely ceremony.
The Duxbury Volunteer Fire Department is currently participating in Firefighter One training. They also have a new station and two new fire trucks. This is a very important thing for our community and they are always looking for volunteers. If you are interested contact me and I will put you in touch with them.
One of our new residents Sara and her husband Ben Glocke have a great farm and many other interesting items here in town. If you would like to see it, go to DuxburyFarmGirl.com and see the beautiful pictures.

Hello from the “huge metropolis” of Duxbury. This year has started off slightly warmer than last year. That’s if you consider lows of -10 to -18 to be warm.
The Old School Art Center Board of Directors met this past Thursday. It was a flurry of plans and hopes for the Center now that we are back in our main gallery home.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the first exhibit of the year on January 16th from 7-9pm at 214 Eagle Drive in Sandstone. There will be food, refreshments, music by the Procrastinators and Johnny Fingers as well as the beautiful collages of Judy Bergerson and art from many others. Bring your family and friends and enjoy art “up north”.
The Art Center is always looking for new art and volunteers, if you have art or would like to volunteer a bit of your time, please contact Fran Levings at 242-3933.
With the beginning of the year comes the discussion of trash. Not a favorite subject, but a very necessary one. The Tri-Township Disposal District has sent out their schedule for the year listing requirements and meeting dates. If you have not received your notification, contact your Township representatives. Arna – Cheryl Wickham at 242-3409, Clover-Curt Nelson at 384-6079, Danforth-Jeff Shute at 245-2768, New Dosey- Dave Baker at 242-3933, and Wilma-Gary Vink at 245-2517.
Approximately three to four hundred people gathered at the Zion Lutheran Church in Cloverdale this last Saturday to say goodbye to Dustin (Dusty) Klar. The church was filled with beautiful flowers, laughter and memories by friends and family. Pastor Tim Faust delivered a powerful, tear filled obituary that touched everyone. There was beautiful music and fellowship after the service to feed our hungry and sad souls. Dusty touched a lot of people in his 33 years and will be sadly missed. Love and blessing to his parents, Tammy and Jack Klar, family and friends as they try to continue on.
Remember, tomorrow is promised to no one. So live positive, love hard and dance like no one is watching.
