MidTrail auction, flea market and quilt raffle is Thursday, August 7

Tue, 08/05/2014 - 11:11am

If you are looking for a unique collectable, a beautifully crafted piece of hand-stitchery, or that perfect treasure to remind you of the Gunflint Trail, chances are you will find it at the annual Mid-Trail auction, flea market, boutique, and quilt raffle to be held at the Schaap Community Center from 1 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, August 7.

This year’s quilt, crafted by the many talented hands of the Mid-Trail quilters, is a scrappy multi-colored collection of vintage fabrics and is titled Vintage Triangles. Tickets for the raffle are $2 and may be purchased at local businesses as well as at the event.  Drawing for the quilt will be at the conclusion of the auction, and you need not be present to win this lovely queen/king coverlet.

Unusual bric-a-brac, household, and one-of-a-kind items will be located in the flea market, while the boutique offers many artfully hand-crafted pieces, along with great finds donated by local businesses and outfitters.

Hosted by auctioneer Phil Serrin, bidding on goods ranging from arts and crafts, to antiques, to Gunflint Trail experiences is always lively, spirited, and fun, keeping in mind that proceeds from this event benefit the Gunflint Trail Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department.

Homemade cakes along with coffee and lemonade will be available during the fundraiser.

So get out your shopping list, drive 26 miles up the Gunflint Trail to the Schaap Community Center located next to Fire Hall # 1 for an afternoon of fun and treasures, all for a great cause.

Justin Mueller earns hospital certification

Tue, 08/05/2014 - 11:07am

Five hospital trustees from across the state were recognized for earning certification through the Minnesota Hospital Association’s trustee certification program. The comprehensive certification process prepares hospital trustees to effectively meet the growing demands of serving on a hospital board and to be strong health care and community leaders.   

Participating from Cook County North Shore Hospital in Grand Marais was Justin Mueller.

Hospital trustees received training on current health care trends, governance best practices, ethics, government regulations, patient safety, and quality. Participants underwent 35 hours of coursework, making Minnesota’s initiative the most comprehensive in the nation.

“In Minnesota, more and more hospital trustees are formally preparing themselves to address the often-complicated issues facing hospitals and health systems today,” said Lawrence Massa, MHA president and CEO.

“With so many changes in health care policy and practice — especially under federal and state health care reform — hospital trustees want this kind of support to be strong leaders in their organizations,” he added. “And earning this certification demonstrates a trustee’s commitment to the patients and communities the hospital serves.”
