Visiting Twin Valley & Detroit Lakes - Sept. 2008

We went to visit Joe Merhiy at Twin Valley, and he shared with me a list of children from Wild Rice and the dates they were confirmed. Also, stopped to see his sister, Marian Shoemaker, in Detroit Lakes. Northern Minnesota was lovely with all the hues of green, lakes and rivers. Stopped by the Wild Rice River - it was beautiful!
