Plan to join us this coming Saturday for a fun winter activity for all ages! This is a family-friendly, dog-friendly event for everyone who enjoys the outdoors and winter hikes! The Northern Lites Snowshoe Company has sponsored 10 sets of snowshoes for the day of the event – so bring a friend or yourself, even if you don’t own a pair of snowshoes!  If there are enough demo pairs left and you have your own- but would like to demo their race style snowshoe you certainly can!

Check-in begins Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 9am at the American Legion in Pine Park located at 311 Tuttle Street, Balsam Lake, WI. The registration fee is $20 for both walkers and runners. All proceeds go toward the improvement of Pine Park. Click here to download and print your registration form. Please bring your registration form and race fees on the day of the event. 

Each participant receives a goodie bag on race day at registration. The race begins at Pine Park, follows a designated trail route through the beautiful wooded areas surrounding Balsam Lake, and ends on the Mill Pond. Water will be provided before and after the race.

Prizes will be given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for the women’s, men’s, and kid’s division. Door prizes will also be given!

We’re All Hearts and Flowers

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and our floral shop is overflowing with fresh flowers, arrangements, and gifts galore! If you can’t decide what to give, or what to get for this holiday full of love, here’s a few of our staff’s favorites!

Amanda: With her cheerful and sunny disposition, it is only fitting that our favorite floral shop owner chose yellow roses as her Valentine’s Day favorite. “Roses don’t always have to be red,” Amanda said with a grin. “Yellow roses can brighten anyone’s day!” She also loves the new Staghorn Fern houseplants we just got in! Perfect for tight spaces and medium- light locations, these easy-care houseplants in a coconut shell will make your house feel like a tropical jungle!

LuAnn: Our tenderhearted co-worker loves blooming houseplants, and she thinks azaleas are just the thing! In a variety of pinks, coral, and fuchsia, these long-lasting flowering plants make a great gift for that special someone. She also loves stuffed animals, but the soft grey elephant with pink feet is her favorite!

Summer: This gardening girl loves plants, nature, and especially frogs! “Will You Be My Prince” fairy garden is her Valentine’s Day gift of choice! With silk succulents, this no-care fairy garden will last in your heart forever! Add a box of chocolates (and Skid’s the Kitty), and you’ll make her day!

Cassie: Our on-trend friend Cassie likes red roses and tropical flowers best! A big bouquet of deep red, heart-shaped roses are a great way to say “I love you” this Valentine’s Day! For a dramatic and exotic look, add orchids to a mixed flower arrangement, or make a bold statement with a vase of just a few orchid stems! 

Find your Valentine that perfect gift at Balsam Lake Pro-Lawn! We hope everyone has a safe and a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
