Music in the Park donations needed before June 10

The Silver Lake Music in the Park Committee is reminding donors of prizes for the event that donations are due by June 10 so a listing may be compiled. If an organization, business or individual would rather donate cash for the small gratuity paid to the musicians, it would be appreciated.
Donors are encouraged to put their names on the prizes if they want to be acknowledged.
Any donations turned in to the committee after that date or brought to the park will be listed as given by an anonymous donor.

As Memorial Day approaches, some may wonder what those little red flowers are that are appearing on people’s hats and lapels and purses. Perhaps it’s time for a reminder of what the American Legion Auxiliary Poppy Program is about.

Ban on plastic shopping bags?

As convenient as they are for so many tasks, from hauling our groceries to cleaning up pet waste, most of us are aware that plastic bags are not healthy for our environment.
Although there are biodegradable plastic bags, most in use are not. Plastic bags are, however, recyclable, but getting them to proper recycling facilities is problematic. They clutter up recycling equipment, blow around landfills and along highways, and generally are as detrimental as they are useful.

Despite my best effort, I finished the ride

As usual, I was under-prepared, under-trained and, I admit, more than a little frightened.
As I have written before, my brother, his daughter and I like to push ourselves with new challenges, from 5K runs to a duathlon and other events.
Now, we have become biking enthusiasts. Well, maybe enthusiast is too strong of a word, at least for me, considering how little time I’ve spent on a bicycle lately.
But earlier this winter, we committed ourselves to riding in the MS Society’s 50-mile ride, which was Saturday in the Twin Cities.

GSL kids get kudos on behavior

I just wanted to let all Glencoe-Silver Lake (GSL) parents and community members know that our kids received an excellent comment from the staff at the Brunzwick Zone, where prom and the after-prom party were held.
The kids were commended for their great behavior and respectfulness. GSL truly has great kids!
