PEPIN — The Flyway Film Festival has announced that the festival organization will restructure during 2018, with plans to host a two-day event Oct. 19-20 in Stockholm, Pepin and Alma. When the Flyway's founder and executive director, Rick Vaicius, made the decision to move to the Twin Cities last year, a group of Lake Pepin-area volunteers took the reins of the annual event. According to incoming Flyway board member Mary Anne Collins-Svoboda, the group is in the process of forming a new nonprofit organization.

Mildred Marie Enquist (Fredrickson), known to all as Milly, was born April 24, 1924, to David and Emma Enquist in Minneapolis. Fifteen months later, her brother John was born. Her father was a veteran of World War I and worked in the construction trade in Minneapolis. Her mother was a devoted wife and mother but sadly died from cancer when Milly was 13. Losing her mother was one of Milly's most painful losses. However, she was loved and cared for by her extended family. She is forever grateful to her older cousin, Marge, who left her senior year of high school and came to live with her.
