There was spirit in Harmony on July 4

The colors of red, white, and blue poured into the town of Harmony, Minn. during this year’s long Independence Day weekend. With July 4 falling on a Friday, many people enjoyed a three day weekend to take in all of the festivities the town had to offer.

The Harmony Conservation Club got the weekend underway early sponsoring the Beer Tent and a DJ on Thursday night and continuing their support on Friday morning with the Pancake Breakfast at the Harmony Fire Hall.

Keith McIntosh, President of the Harmony Conservation Club, along with many enthusiastic volunteers provided a delicious hot breakfast of pancakes, sausage and drinks for a steady crowd streaming in all morning.

One of the younger volunteers flipping pancakes was Teigen Miller, 13, who seemed to have the procedure perfected, even serving royalty. Miss Harmony Sara Schultz, First Attendant Leah Scheevel, and Second Attendant Katie Kotek each ate breakfast to begin their busy day and said the food was very good.

A Best Shot 9 Hole Golf Tournament began at 9 a.m. on Friday morning with friends and family enjoying a day hitting the links at the Harmony Golf Course. Josh Whalen of Chatfield stated he wasn’t golfing but “came down for the fun” saying he was born and raised in Harmony as was his friend Dick Erickson of Farmington, Minn. who did participate in the tourney.

One particular group seemed to be having a lot of fun while waiting to get on the golf course. Sisters Michelle Guttormson and Diane Bigalk along with their friend Nina Kjarland talked and laughed with each other, not only looking forward to golfing but spending the day together also.

Hammell Equipment sponsored a state sanctioned Kiddie Pedal Pull for the fourth consecutive year which brought a large crowd of participants and supporters. River Valley Pedal Tractor Pulls from Osceola, Wis. qualified children in different age groups to enter in the State Pedal Tractor Pull held in the middle of September. The top three finishers in each age group received trophies and every child who pulled received a can of pop.

Briggs Gregor, 4, attended the pedal pull with his brother, Brock, and parents Adam and Patty of Waterville, Minn. The Gregors were in town visiting family members Randy and Tanny Mayer and the entire family was very happy to see Briggs win his first place trophy. Briggs received a liver transplant in April 2014 and his e .....
