February 23rd, 2014|

There is a stark contrast between what is happening in my mind and what is actually happening outdoors at Coop’s Event Barn.  We, like the rest of much of southern Minnesota got buried in hard packed snow, the result of blizzard like conditions that brought 8-10 inches of snow in less than 24 hours.  This was […]
