Last week I wrote about my trip to Fort Drum, New York to watch my son’s military promotion ceremony. I mentioned that one full day was spent on the ceremony and everything involved with it, and my final day in Upstate New York was spent helping him learn how to shop like a real broke adult, and helping decorate and organize his home. The day in between all of that (trip days bookmarked by two long, terrible flight days), we spent going on an adventure that we decided needed to be an epic one.
Last Tuesday evening, area leaders gathered at the Pioneer PBS station in rural Granite Falls to hear a presentation given by Deb Brown, of Iowa.

The presentation was hosted by the Upper Minnesota River Valley RDC and Southwest Initiative Foundation (SWIF).
