It seems like weeks ago since I last wrote news for my column. With the Cranberry Festival last week it really tied me down. Now, things are back to normal. The Stone Lake Market would like to recognize all of its loyal patrons who have stayed customers of the store through thick and thin, over the past 11 years. This is a sad time for all of us, losing our little grocery store after 103 years of operation, and at least a dozen different owners. Please take some time on Friday, Oct. 18 and Saturday, Oct. 19 of this week to stop in the store to say goodbye to those us who may be working there. And keep this store in mind should you hear of someone who may want to bring a new business to Stone Lake.
