Volunteer to Ring Bells for the Salvation Army to Earn Bulldogs and Huskies Tickets

While many people in the Northland have already donated their time to ring bells for the Salvation Army, there is still a very large need for people.

According to their press release, the Duluth Salvation Army has nearly 800 two-hour shifts available and if volunteers do not step forward, the kettle locations will sit empty.  Therefore, they have decided to sweeten the deal to get more volunteers.

Tedious Spritz Cookie Making Is Made Easier With Cathy Kates’ Spritz Chips

Circle slash cookie press!  I had to find a better way to maximize time and efforts when it comes to making Spritz.  It's my husband's favorite Christmas cookie (besides one that looks super involved and I'll continue to let his sister make).  So, I experimented and it worked!  Same great taste, no frustration and one happy husband!

The Generosity Of The Community And Chub Lake Tree Farm Makes Me Proud

I grew up on County Road 3 in Wrenshall.  Technically I lived on what I called the border, because the kids on the other side of the street went to Carlton and I went to Wrenshall.  It was cool to have friends in both schools.  I was only about two miles from the Chub Lake Tree Farm, it didn't appear until after I had moved to Duluth.

Two days, Two Gold Coins Worth $2,400 Found in Salvation Army Red Kettles

I love stories like this.  We all see the bell ringers donating hours of their time to ring the bells and raise money for the Salvation Army.  It always feels good to make a donation into the red kettles rather than walk right past, but sometimes people go above and beyond the call of duty.

Mariah Carey’s Performance at Christmas in Rockefeller Center Was Live, and You Could Tell [VIDEO]

Ok, so first of all, I don't think it was THAT bad.  Mariah Carey sang her hit Christmas song "All I Want For Christmas is You" last night at Rockefeller Center.  Apparently it was supposed to be taped ahead of time but she never showed up.  So she ended up doing it live and it was noticeable.

Superior’s Salvation Army Hopes To Step Up Donations To Reach 2014 Christmas Goal

When I have been out shopping in the Northland the past couple of weeks I've noticed several of the Salvation Army's Red Kettles in place, but stand alone, without a bell ringer.  There's no attention-getting sound or someone with a "Happy Holidays" to draw attention or entice you to drop in your change or a spare buck or two.  This may be one reason they are falling short of their 2014 Christmas goal.

Kylee And I Made Super Easy Eye-Pleasing Christmas Bark

Since my husband and I volunteer on Thanksgiving Day, we celebrate with our dinner on Wednesday.  While our meal was cooking I wanted to have a "little project" for my daughter Kylee and I to do together.  I knew she was going to her grandma's the next day so I thought a sweet treat might be good to make so she could contribute to the meal too.
