Hard to believe our Garrison Keillor event has come and gone. It was a delightful evening filled with wit, wisdom, poetry and song, something those in attendance will never forget. Thank you to all who helped make this event possible.
Mr. Keillor left us with a little bit of a Detroit Lakes limerick as well:
"People in Detroit Lakes make very few mistakes in manners or grammar and they know how hammer and saw when anything breaks." Garrison Keillor - April 27, 2017.
