YOU GUYS ROCK!

The 2011
NARS Bonfire Celebration




We are about to get this party started! Felt so good to watch the wood from the storm damage burn, to look around at all the people who helped restore Northwoods and see everyone laughing and having such a good time!

Was the perfect evening to celebrate the wonderful volunteers, friends and family of NARS. Is so thankful for you all!
Was so much fun!



Our very first 2011
Northwoods Rocks!
Music Concert & Fundraiser
was a success!!!



Thank you to EVERYONE that came out to enjoy what was an absolutely perfect night of phenomenal music and great friends! Looks forward to our 2nd Annual
Northwoods Rocks! Music Concert & Fundraising Event coming in spring of 2012!

Very Special Thanks;
Northwoods Rocks! was a team effort of amazing adults and a some absolutely wonderful kids. Each of them lending their backs as well as their hearts in helping to create an incredible event. I want to thank Gwen & Ernie-who were absolutely instrumental throughout and gave so much of themselves, to Denise & her hubby Jim for your friendship, support and blood...Jim has the scar to prove it), to Dave from Anoka Meats (I and my family may be Veges...but you can't help but love Dave-just a wonderful, generous man and if we were meat eaters...there would be no other guy to go to), to the Larkin boys (special thanks to Tyler, you risked life and limb to give the minis a roof and to help cut up that giant oak), to my cousin Colette and friend Gordy, to my 2 incredible girls-and I do mean INCREDIBLE! I can't begin to thank them for EVERYTHING, to Cindy my farrier, to my hay guy Doug and his family, to my neighbor's Dell & Agie, to Randy at Mickman's, to the entire Andover community and all my wonderful friends for traveling from all over to support me, my family and the animals of Northwoods. And to 3 great bands...Buddy B and the Kind (no joke when you see the word "Kind" as these guys have huge hearts!, to the 3 super sweet and talented guys of Post-Mercury and to Bomba de Luz, you 4 are as talented as you are compassionate and amazing! Truly a gifted bunch of people as well as grounded, kind, and a lot of fun! I am so thankful for each and every one of you!
Thank you. Much love. Elisa of NARS
