The rain didn't stop us!

Sunday, August 21, 2016 Thank you so much for everyone who attended the Stairs of Stillwater walk yesterday! Despite the rainy morning, there were smiles everywhere and the volunteers along the route who were serving as crossing guards and route guides said they didn't hear anyone complain about the weather. As mentioned previously, we Minnesotans are a hearty bunch and make the most of every day no matter what weather is thrown our way. We appreciate your support!
