This was a fine busy week at Fair Oaks Lodge even if it was a bit too warm, with activities both inside and outside. A fox found one of our feeders last week while a wild turkey came to check them out this week. We love it when those wild critters come up to make friends with us.


We have been hearing stories of residents who have held jobs for 30 and even 40 years. Well, today's story is about Irella Woessner, who worked at the Ben Franklin Store in Wadena for 55 years!
