Remer MN

2020 is an extraordinary year, especially for local high school seniors.  They are experiencing something no one has gone through before:  celebrating and honoring their education in a world of social distancing.  Do you know a graduating senior?  We'd love to talk with them!  Email us. 

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday.

On the Morning Show today we welcomed Chris Fulton - Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation (GRACF) Executive Director to tell us about Giving Tuesday and the Community Foundations they manage that have matching grants from the Blandin Foundation.

Scott and Kara Kesti moved to Remer several years ago.  Leaving behing life in the big city, the Kestis opened opened a store on mainstreet in Remer and have made it their mission to be engaged in their community, attract young people to the area, and spice things up a bit.  They were a big part of organizing the now annual Bigfoot Music Festival and continue to think of new and creative ways to get folks to stop off in Remer as they pass through.  In this segment of Let's Visit, the Kestis discuss what they love about the area and what Remer, MN has to offer! 

Was that bigfoot?!  Remer, MN is known for people having seen, smelled or heard bigfoot in their midst.  This fall, the annual Bigfoot Music Festival was in full swing when Let's Visit producer Katie Carter paid a visit.  She bumped into a unique and lively group of women who call themselves Shesquatchers.  They are the first all female bigfoot hunting team in the nation.  Learn about them in this segment of Let's Visit!

Let's Visit is Northern Community Radio way of sharing various communities and places in our broadcast region with our listeners.  This past month, Let's Visit focused on Remer, MN.  Remer is more than a palindrome.  It's a quaint, small town with a penchant for Bigfoot that serves as many students in the school district as there is population in the community itself.  Northland Community Schools serves children from Outing, Boy River, Longville, and Federal Dam.

Ten Thousand Things Theater Company's mission is to bring "lively, intelligent, professional theater to people with little access to the wealth of the arts."   This professional troupe takes shows to prisons, women's shelters, low income senior centers and other unexpected locales.   They weave thespian magic without fancy sets and involved lighting.
