Let’s beat those winter blahs. We have been invited to attend the 2nd annual Scandihoovian Dinner at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Cedar Rapids. The dinner this past January was such a huge success that they are talking “annual event.” Please invite your spouse/friend. The date has not been determined, but we can look forward to January 2019.
