For those who had to put up with a summer filled with heat and humidity, relief came last Friday in the form cool temperatures, brisk winds and hot chocolate. Except for Christmas, is not fall the best time on the calendar?
Old Glory flies in front of Mt. McKinley, the largest mountain on the North American continent. Whether you call it McKinley or Denali (the debate still rages in Alaska) its still awe inspiring nonetheless.
The Ellsworth Hubbers decided not have a tournament this year, which had been held in conjunction with the Cheese Curd Festival, and decided instead to hold a golf tournament as their main fundraiser. The First Annual Nick Bayer Memorial Golf Tournament will take place July 17 at the Ellsworth Country Club.
