Church collecting Easter donations
Donations for Easter baskets for victims of superstorm Sandy and snowstorm Nemo can be made at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi.
The church is seeking non-chocolate candy, stuffed animals, lip balm, socks, tooth brushes or a minimum $5 donation at the St. Andrew’s campus at 900 Stillwater Road. No actual Easter baskets should be donated, the church said.
Deadline for drop-off is March 20.
“One of the children in Sunday school came up with this idea at church one weekend,” said project coordinator Carrin Mahmood. “When we called out East to see if there was any interest, they got very excited and let us know that this will make a big difference to victims who have been devastated by these storms.”
St. Andrew’s is at the intersection of Hilton Trail and Stillwater Road in Mahtomedi. For more information, contact Mahmood at 651-426-3261.
Rin Tin Tin
at home and
Rin Tin Tin, the 12th-generation descendant of a German Shepherd that appeared in movies after World War I, will perform two 20-minute shows at the 4th annual Home and Garden Show in Stillwater on March 23.
Dolly Parker, the show manager, said Rin Tin Tin’s appearance resulted from an expansion of the children’s activity portion of the show. The 2007 movie, “Finding Rin Tin Tin,” was based on the true story of an German Shepherd rescued by an American soldier and trained to aid wounded soldiers on the battlefield. The original dog starred in several motion pictures from 1920-1931, Parker said.
The free event will take place at Rutherford Elementary School from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Rin Tin Tin will be there from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with specific show times to be determined, said the Stillwater Area Chamber of Commerce.
