Week of September 24, 2017

Nothing to report from the mayor as I have been bicycle touring in France, but here are a couple of wonderful opportunities to be a tourist in our own neck of the woods.  I hope you can make one or both of these unique events:
White Bear History Hikes:  the Lake Links Association is hosting two History Hikes along the shores of White Bear Lake in October.

1) On Oct. 14, White Bear Lake Area Historical Society executive director Sara Markoe Hanson will lead a tour of Indian mounds, early resort sites and other historical landmarks along Lake Avenue in White Bear Lake. Meet at Lion’s Park at 2 p.m.

2) On Oct. 21, Lake Links Association co-chair Steve Wolgamot will lead a tour of the Chautauqua area, gangster hangouts and more in Mahtomedi. Meet at the Mahtomedi District Education Center.

Both hikes are free and open to the public. Call 651-303-3089 or more information or to RSVP (encouraged but not required), The Lake Links Association is a citizen group pursuing safe passage for bicyclists and pedestrians around White Bear Lake. Learn more at lakelinks.net.
