Our Very Own Prairie Home

Suzanne Thomas, owner of Buena Vista Ski Area, happily poses with Garrison Keillor.
Last week, while the NPR Prairie Home Companion Show was in Bemidji to do a local broadcast, the entire cast and crew visited Buena Vista for a Lumberjack Breakfast. 
Bright and early Sunday morning, pancakes and sausage were served to the crew of approximately 80 people. 
Then everyone boarded horse-drawn sleighs, driven by members of the local Whoa & Go Harness Club, for a little "Over the river & through the woods..."

One lucky driver had his sleigh embellished with words from Garrison Keillor's very own pen. 
Even though I wasn't one of the BV people that got to meet the cast and crew of the beloved Prairie Home Companion Show, I'm sure that all of those that did felt it was a great honor to host a meal and sleigh ride for these terrific radio artists.  (lucky ducks!)
Thanks for your visit Mr. Keillor!
