This always is a fun event.

The Davis and Griesner families and neighbors on the south side of the River had a picnic on their riverside beach. It startled the rafters coming around the bend, as the Griesner beach is a favorite stopping spot for the rafters. The rafters wanted to know if it was private property - (YES)! The rafters like pulling out of the water and climbing the rocks and jumping in the river, even though the rafting companies say not to do that.

The Willms house on Willms road has had its outside reconstructed and painted, now to the inside! It is quite a spectacular home, drive by and take a look.
