Letter: Students did great job on 'big chair'
Kudos to the Two Harbors High School Industrial Arts Class who built the "big chair" that is now located in the parking lot of the Two Harbors Visitor's Center. (It is, by the way, now the largest chair on the North Shore.) All day long people stop, climb the steps, and have fun posing...
