Journal entry by Rhonda Christensen LaFlash

Hello All,

Russell's family is having a celebration in honor of Russell. 

When:         August 8, 2020
                  1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Where:        Brooklyn Park
                  205 S 1st Street
                  Brooklyn, WI  53521

A pig roast will be provided by Russell's employer and friend Jason Marshall. 
The Bergeland family will provide the sides along with water, soda and beer.

With the current COVID situation, they would prefer that no one brings any additional food.
They appreciate everyone's generosity, kindness and willingness to help and want to keep it simple and safe.

It is outside, with plenty of room to practice social distancing.  

Hope to see you there.
