Also at the Expo, there will be free food, free entertainment and a gymnasium full of local businesses with their best deals on the table for their neighbors. Admission is free and their will be door prizes and give-aways throughout the event.
Monday, CentraCare-Monticello opens their newly refurbished and updated Birth Center. The private rooms contain everything needed through labor and delivery to recovery for mom and her support person.

Come and join the community for a dinner of fried fish, baked potatoes, coleslaw, beans and bread rolls washed down with milk or coffee. Meals are $10 per person, children 6-12 $6, children five and under free, and the Big Lake Lioness will have delicious slices of pie on sale for dessert.
