August is here with Fisherman's Picnic weekend upon us! Everyone looks forward to having families and friends back in town for the festivities. It has been a fun-filled summer for elders at the North Shore Care Center thanks to our beautiful sunny weather.
The residents hope the sun continues to shine all weekend so they can try their luck at the Bingo tent at the American Legion on Friday. The Grand Marais Lions Club will provide their tasty fishburgers for dinner that night, which is always a treat - and always appreciated.
