It’s Coming! The Brian Saaristo Celebration Day, October 7th at the Cromwell Park Pavilion. (This is a Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Matching Funds Event.) A Pancake Breakfast will be served from 7 AM - 1 PM followed by BINGO at 1 PM. In addition there will be a silent auction from 11 AM - 3 PM and a very special musical tribute at Noon. If you would like to donate a prize for the auction, contact Carolyn Krogh at 644-3670. If you can’t participate in this event, but want to send a contribution to the benefit, please make your check payable to Brian Saaristo and mail it to the Northview Bank, POI Box 68, Cromwell, MN 55726. You may have also noticed all the yellow ribbons popping up all over Cromwell and Wright to show your support for Brian’s courage. If you’d like one for your mailbox or front yard, please call Jeanne Weimer at 644-3953 in Cromwell or stop by the Groth Lumber Yard in Wright and ask Dennis for your ribbon/s.
As you may have noticed, there was a big article about Brian and his family in the Sunday Edition of the Duluth News Tribune. This article answers a lot of the questions people have been asking about Brian and his progress. He wants to get back home to Wright as soon as possible and it looks like he may even make it for the special celebration in his honor. If not, our thoughts and prayers are with him as he continues to heal and learn to walk with his new feet.
