SHERBURNE COUNTY 4-H’ers got some hands-on experience working at the 4-H foodstand at the fairgrounds Wednesday evening in preparation for the Sherburne County Fair, which starts Wednesday.

The Sherburne County Fair starts this week, and wherever there’s a fair, there’s food. Sherburne County 4-H’ers are making sure visitors to the fair will have lots of tasty food - and great service.

GRAND KNIGHT DENNIS NAGORSKI of the Knights of Columbus presented Big Lake Chief of Police Joel Scharf and Becker Chief of Police Brent Baloun with a donation of prescription drug drop-boxes for each city. Along with marijuana, prescription drugs are often abused because of easy access. Keeping them out of the water system is important to protect the environment. Now our residents have a safe way to dispose of their unwanted or out-dated medications. (Photo by Jennifer Edwards).
The Knights of Columbus from Mary of the Visitation Catholic Church in Becker and Big Lake donated almost $1,800 to purchase prescription drug drop boxes for the police departments in both cities. Residents of either city can take their unused prescription medications and drop them in the boxes for safe disposal.
