Pikkujoulu had a great turn out this year! People were out setting candles up in the cemetery as a memorial. The wind made it challenging to keep the candles light this year, but it still looked beautiful when the sun set.
We enjoyed a delicious pot luck supper, afterwards entertained with a sing along of Christmas Carols. The main program of the evening was Larry Pokornowski with three characters in his ventriloquism performance. His talent had the whole room laughing, some in tears.
This 1922 all terrain vehicle (snowmobile car) originally used by the rural mail man will be on display. It is on loan from the Cokato Museum. The vehicle has had some custom work done to allow it for operate with wheels or the ski.
