Our future Five Oaks Hudson campus pastor, Bob Brueggen, and Dana Hayden (Outreach Director) went to Hudson on Monday to start surveying the landscape, looking for a possible meeting location for our campus launch next fall. If you have ideas, we're all ears.
Speaking of Hudson, what a great city. I love the St. Croix. (I have to admit, though, that my absolutely favorite place is the Minnetonka lakes. I spent some summers as a kid on those lakes with my cousin Henry's family, skiing every chance we could get, swimming and having some of the best days of my life. Then in college I went snowmobiling, fishing and boating on the lake. I proposed to Lois on one of those lakes after a dinner at Lord Fletcher's (got there by boat). But I digress...) The St. Croix is my second favorite place. What a great river. What incredible vistas from the hills and bluffs lining the river. I love heading out to dinner or coffee or just about anything in places like Hudson and Stillwater.
