As I watched Justina Peters deadhead the flowers in the pouring rain this morning, I was compelled to write a letter that has been on my mind for quite some time. I wanted to say Justina is doing an amazing job in choosing, planting, and tending the beautiful flowers in our town. One day when Justina was watering the flowers outside of the Lakes Artisan Center, I asked if she enjoyed her job. She told me that while it was hard work, she did it because she loved Burns Lake and wanted people to be proud of their town.
Thanks to Justina Peters and all those who worked on the design and improvement of Burns Lake, I am proud of Burns Lake.
