Eagan's 150th birthday!

Eagan residents gathered at the Eagan Community Center on Saturday evening, January 9 to celebrate the beginning of Eagan's 150th birthday year. Mayor Mike Maguire gave the opening celebratory speech. Scott Swenson, 150th birthday committee chairperson, also welcomed guests and spoke. Loud horns sounded, people ate cake, a quartet sang and everyone seemed to enjoy the opening event.

    I shall never forget that word. Years ago, it cost me a win in a trivia game and I've been waiting patiently to use it ever since!!!!!! Hopefully, your great city celebrates your daily photo efforts as you bring Egan to the world, DAILY!!!!!

  6. 150 years? And I'll bet you were there at the beginning of the creation! In your Longjohns, of course!

    Is it true that as you were running around with your camera and as the cake disappeared, someone said, "Boy, Safe Leif takes the cake"?

    I suppose that up there in the far north indoor events are important so that people don't freeze to death. I'm curious, though, about the long horns. Probably to awaken Minneeesotans out of their comatose winter slumber?

    Hope you had a good time. Leif for mayor? Heh, heh!

    Can you send me a piece of cake? :) That one looks so yummy, i wonder how it tastes like :)
    Am salivating here, my salivary glands can't help but continue to release such gastrointestinal enzymes hahahaha.

    By the way, thanks for visiting my blog. I am grateful. I am so slow with commenting these past few days because something is wrong with our internet speed. It takes years to open a webpage.

    Have a nice day.
