Letter to the editor: It's winter, let's frolic!

Like many others in our community, I was saddened to hear a few months ago that the Two Harbors Chamber of Commerce would not be able to continue organizing the annual Winter Frolic celebration in Two Harbors. Events such as this take commitment not only from a dedicated committee but also from the community as a whole.

Upon hearing the news I immediately felt an obligation to our community to take whatever action I could to keep the Two Harbors Winter Frolic going. It didn't take long to find others willing to help (including the Chamber!) and we've already had our first organizational meeting to get a schedule mapped out and to begin working on event priorities. Right now we plan on taking the best from past events and adding a few new ideas for 2014.

The success of any community event relies greatly on those willing to contribute time, financial contributions, or donations, so this is my personal invitation to all residents, businesses, and community organizations to be a part of the Two Harbors Winter Frolic celebration scheduled for Feb. 7-8, 2014. If you would like to lend a hand, please contact me at, and if you are contacted by a committee member to help, I hope you will consider it.

The committee will be meeting again soon and we're excited to roll out a schedule of events in December. So be sure to put Feb. 7-8, 2014 on your calendars and I look forward to seeing you at the 2014 Two Harbors Winter Frolic.
