With the first frost predicted for next week, everyone should get out and enjoy the weather this weekend.

Whether it’s hunting, hiking, fishing or just taking a stroll in the woods, you should enjoy the outdoors.

A.R.T. coming to Emmet County

The Artisans Road Trip is coming to Emmet County for the first time ever next Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 4-5.

Estherville Daily News employees Theresa Odom and Michael Tidemann will display and sell their work during this year’s Artisans Road Trip.

Odom will display her multi-media art including drawings and paintings in oil, oil pastel, charcoal, graphite, encaustic painting and photography.

Tidemann will exhibit photography of the Pacific northwest and also of Fort Defiance State Park. All of the proceeds from Tidemann’s work will go to Emmet County Kinship which will also hold a used book sale with hardcovers selling for $1 and paperbacks for 50 cents 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4 and a $2 a bag Sunday, Oct. 5.

The art show and sale will be held at the lodge at Fort Defiance State Park.

We wish to thank the many people who donated books for the Emmet County Kinship book sale. Your generosity was incredible.

What day is it?

What’s today? It’s National Public Lands Day, R.E.A.D. in America Day, Ancestor Appreciation Day, Family Health and Fitness Day USA, Kiwanis Kids’ Day, National Hunting and Fishing Day and World Tourism Day.

So why not take the kids out hunting or fishing or even on a trip to Yellowstone or Europe. Be sure to read up on your family history first, though, so you can hike around the cemetery where your ancestors are buried.
