What a great time had by all in Chatfield. There was magic in the air the whole trip. What can I say? Monica and the library staff were so welcoming. It was a great celebration and we were glad to be a part of it. So many of the audience members came up to me after the show to express their appreciation. It is the 96th birthday of one of the awesome Carnegie Libraries!! A lovely posting and some photos are on the libraries' website at: http://www3.selco.info/cpl/
Staying overnite at this beautiful bed and breakfast: Oakenwald Terrace made the trip so much easier. If you ever stop in, ask to see the "Doll Room". Woke up the next day and after a wonderful breakfast at Oakenwald, headed over to the (Amazing!) Chatfield Brass Band & Music Lending Library where they house a remarkable collection of catalogued band music. Go to: http://chatfieldband.lib.mn.us/ and check out the great history of this place. Band leaders, take note. Thanks to the wonderful volunteers who keep up this national treasure!!!
