Over the weekend people gathered at Robert Ney Park just north of Maple Lake for a day of dog sledding. Participants were able to learn about the exciting sport, and then hit the trails to experience the thrill of being pulled on a sled by a team of Siberian Huskies through the woods. Bradley Harrington with the Wright County Parks welcomed approx. 120 people to the five sessions held on Friday and Saturday. The dog sled rides began back in 2007 and have grown in popularity every year. Cold weather did not prevent attendees from enjoying the day. According to Harrington, “everyone had a good time.”

Notes from Archival Corner, Maple Lake Library

The Maple Lake Archives needs your help. We cannot have an archive if you aren’t willing to share Maple Lake history. What do we need? We are interested in photos of people and the town. If you have written a family history of local people, we would love to have a copy of it.
