Some of the descendants of the late Carl (Charles) and Inga Thompson Simonson met for the 57th year on July 14. This year the Mount Morris County Park was not used.

You’ve all heard before, “get involved with your local governments.” If not directly as a representative, certainly at a minimum keep up with what’s going on by reading the minutes from your town, village, city, or county board meetings. My frustration level has peaked over the past few months with some of our representative’s decisions.
