Book signing Event a Success

The Friends of the Howard Lake Library hosted over fifty guests at the book signing for “Making Tracks: C.L. Best and the Caterpillar Tractor Co.”  Ed & Sue Claessen, authors of “Making Tracks”, discussed the extensive work involved with going from a concept to a printed book and also signed copies of their book.  The Friends provided the refreshments.

For those interested, the Great River Regional Library system has two copies of “Making Tracks” available in the system.  The link to their website is provided on the left side of the page.


Perfectly Painted Pumpkins

Even the eternal road construction couldn’t keep the artists from the 2011 Friends of the Howard Lake Library Pumpkin Painting event.  During the two sessions, over sixty pumpkins and gourds were decorated. The Howard Lake Royalty painted their own masterpieces while encouraging the young painters. While the paint was drying, the painters enjoyed cookies and KoolAid.

Our thanks to the Untiedt  Vegetable Farm for providing the excellent “canvasses”.

Enjoy some photos of the 2011 event and hope to see you in 2012.
