National Night Out is “an annual event designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners.”
What a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors even better!
I’m helping to organize NNO for our neighborhood in downtown Chaska this year (west of 41).
Hope to see you there!

What a crowd!
The Chaska Fire Department brought a pumper truck, hooked up a sprinkler and showed off with some firefighter games like “spray the can with the hose.” Pretty fun to watch, actually.
My church pumped out the delicious food again with our Pork Chop and Roasted Corn on a stick booth.
And Grant got to jump in the inflatables, race his favorite NASCAR and spend some quality time with Grandpa.
Hey hey – it’s Chaska River City Days this weekend.
City Square Park is packed full of food vendors, inflatables for the kids, and music and refreshments for the parents. I just love seeing historic downtown Chaska so packed full of people.
It was two years ago this weekend that Jenny and I fell in love with the community, and RCD had a lot to do with it. My parents are in town from Florida, so we’re be taking them tomorrow. Our church, Oasis Church, is again hosting the pork chop on a stick booth. Can’t wait for one of those.
And the parade is Sunday at 1 p.m. The photo is my son from last year. Gotta love a parade with candy…especially when you can lift one or two pieces without them noticing (guilty as charged).

Shoot me a text or DM if you come out. Would love to say hello.
Even mounted to the columns at St. Patrick’s Cathedral (bonus: Bose speakers).
After keeping tabs on my epic blog post chronicling the foreclosed house next door, the Chaska Herald wrote a feature story about the struggles we’ve had with the property management company, the city and the companies who aren’t doing their jobs to maintain it.
