A Twins game with a great crew and many familiar faces...
After an adventure to the ballpark - I stretched a bit and geared up for the Murphy Golf Outing. We may not look like professional golfers - but we have mean swings - great toe nails - and we had one heck of a time.
As we arrived to load the bus last Thursday, I looked around and took in all in attendance... There were new faces mixed in with old - but smiles on all. Thank you to everyone who took part in the event. A special thank you to Katie D. for all you efforts in helping organize this.
What would an event be without a few moments captured...
Relay for Life - Event Details and Luminaria Bags...

The American Cancer Society continues to celebrate birthdays and fight cancer.
Each year the event is held at Lake Park in Winona – Jaycee Pavilion. It is an amazing event – walking the path surrounded my luminaria bags, with family –friends – and friends you haven’t met yet…each bag featuring one of the strongest people in the world.
If you wish to purchase a luminaria bag in memory of or in honor of someone, to help support the American Cancer Society and their efforts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. (When emailing Team Vogel, please specify in memory of or honor of and the individuals name. I know there are creative individuals out there – wanting to make their owns bags – that is OK too.
