What is your favorite family celebration or tradition?
Vern Pettis … 20 years
My kids are grown up and gone. We have a place up north that we go to … up by the Nisswa area with deer all over on 2 ½ acres. My daughter (Nicole) was in town for my birthday. She worked here while she was in school.

It is Thanksgiving, because we get together with my mom’s family. She was one of 14 children. We rent the basement of my aunt’s church. It’s 50 people, and it’s been as high as 100 people– my cousins and my cousins’ kids.

Every June, my fiancé, her family and I take a big camping trip with everybody– aunts, uncles, grandparents. We pick a different state park every year. Mille Lacs, Kathio, Father Hennepin, Gooseberry Falls, or Itasca.
