Readers Digest Article on Grand Marais

I will be busy the next few days and won't be able to post a blog update, so today I'll post a second. As many of you know, Grand Marais won $40,000 in the Readers Digest contest. The money will go towards fixing our bay, which has been filling in with sand ever since the original breakwall across the northeast side of the bay eroded in the late 1960s.

A PDF file was sent to me, which I split into the three pages. If you click on each page, you will be able to see it better.

Thanks to all those who helped to give Grand Marais the most votes at 1,281,724. This is 97,354 more votes than what was received for Fairbury, IL, and 637,757 more votes than the third place town of Genoa, NB.
