  1. Michael, , you did my portrait last night at the Anderson Center. It made me feel very special. Thank you.

    I hope to be in touch with you to explore possibilities for your involvement at our Hispanic Festival in Red Wing. This September will be our 5th year of organizing this festival which gets better every year.
