MNopedia volunteers have been busy this year
- The MNopdedia volunteer team has logged more than 762 hours so far this fiscal year and some hours are still to be recorded!
- Rick turned in his first article on G.K. Warren, the first St. Paul District Commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is working on revisions.
- Mary has turned in her first article on the Lake Vermilion-Soudan Underground Mine State Park and is in the editing process. Mary managed to get a number of beautiful photographs from the Park/DNR, with permissions to use them - quite a challenge!

- Sarah's article on the Milwaukee Avenue Historic District was published on April 13, and was picked up by MinnPost as a featured article.
