Elise Serves at the Duluth Fall Festival

The Fall Festival kicked into high gear beginning with a volunteer and sponsors BBQ lunch and display set-up on Friday. I had the opportunity to speak with Representative Brooks Coleman, exchanging thoughts and ideas concerning Highway 120 realignment, and gaining some interesting insight regarding that project.

During the next two days, I worked part of the time at the Civitan booth; circulated throughout the Festival, greeting and meeting folks from all over the country; and occasionally did spot trash pickup on the grounds for items that did not quite make it into the trash cans. The Boy Scouts did a great job of staying on top of the garbage detail.

Duluth Fall Festival Sponsors and Volunteers Dinner

There I sampled gourmet treats and chatted with Senator David Shafer, Mayor Nancy Harris, a few council members, fall festival sponsors and volunteers, and chilled with Miss Cindy and her mom. This city likes to have a good time and it is great to be a part.

Elise Becomes One of Fall Festival Sponsors

Today, I attended the Swingin’ Medallion’s Concert and kick-off event for the Duluth Fall Festival. While there, I became one of the sponsors of the Festival as a way of supporting community working together. The Swingin’ Medallions gave an outstanding performance.
