Canoeists explore Battle River

Canoeing on the Battle River appears to be a popular recreation. Recently at least two groups have canoed from the Lashburn bridge to the Waseca bridge.

July 24, Curtis Sutherland, Felicia Kelsch, Morgan and Mark Thomarat, Brenna Banks and Crystal Sutherland enjoyed the trip down the river, which is higher and swifter than in former years. They topped their journey with a wiener roast at the picnic ground on the north side of the river.
