Sure, you can sit at home, in your pajamas, all curled up by the light of a touch-screen, shopping online into the wee hours of the morning for all of this year’s Christmas gifts. But you’ll be missing out on some unique gifts, and you won’t do your local business community much good.
Each year the Chanhassen Environmental Commission contemplates ways to reduce waste over the holidays. This year we thought we would reach out to Bill Fouks, manager of the Carver County Environmental Center, with our questions.
As a member of the Chanhassen Historical Society, I have learned that many people do not start to take an interest in history until they reach the age of 50. Then I learned about a young Girl Scout, Bronwyn (Braun-win) Boyce-Erickson, and her Silver Award Project, proving my theory wrong. I became excited to share this with our readers. Bronwyn is a resident of Chanhassen and a member of Girl Scout Troop 12817, River Valley Girl Scouts.
