John Hanson who grew up on the North Shore and now lives in California is a faithful reader of the Finland News column. Ruth Himes got a surprise phone call from him last week. John had read in the news that Ruth had been back to Mayo Clinic for her open-heart check-up and just wanted to call to see if she was doing well. Thanks John and happy reading.
Get well wishes to Joyce Hart who was recently in the hospital.
The Northshore Area Partners had a good turnout on Tuesday at the Clair Nelson Center.
