"A few of us had a lovely day in the Shire of Stromfels yesterday in a park by the river in River Falls, WI. It was their first event in 5 years and it was wonderful to be there to join in the celebration. Beautiful weather and wonderful hospitality was to be had and I am glad that I had the opportunity to be there. Not only do I want to thank this Shire for allowing us to share in the party but I want to congratulate them on making it 10 years. May the next 10 be wondrous!"
