And I appreciated Chantel Rouhoff taking time to talk to me Friday night as everyone else celebrated.
For more on this, look at the full column posted here.
Just weeks after being submerged last month's floods, a campground with a bar and grill below the Lake Zumbro Dam started cooking again Saturday.
"Mac's Park Place is open again. We had a lot of great volunteers … friends who made this happen," said Chantel Rouhoff, talking loud to be heard over the laughter and music from the grand re-opening party going on around her.
Randy and Chantel Rouhoff own the riverfront campground with fishing, tent camping, RV hookups, golf cart races, hiking as well as karaoke and a meat raffle every Friday night at the grill.
Mac's is between Oronoco and Mazeppa at the mouth of the Zumbro River. It is in the shadow of the Lake Zumbro.
