Week of November 4, 2018

It is always nice to see so many residents on election day making their way to city hall, especially on such a blustery day.  Despite news reports that many voted early, it seems many in Birchwood still enjoy the social aspect of seeing their neighbors and sharing a story or smile or two regardless of party preference.

Just an update on a grant we were seeking from the Greater White Bear Lake Foundation to help with digitizing the city historical records (including many pictures and community club documents).  We were hoping to have assistance with getting this information on the web in time for our centennial coming up in 2021.  Unfortunately, the application was denied.  We will continue to look for help as this is an expenditure that is beyond our means right now.  
Yoga resumes Tuesday, November 13th at 5 pm at the village hall. All are welcome!
