Staff photo by Gaylen Bicking. Although this Sunday's service will mark the last regular sched- uled Sunday service at Redeemer, Another service of closure will be held later this year at a date to be determined which will mark its official closure. Bishop Ion Ander- son of the Southwestern Minne- sota Synod of the ELCA plans to be present for this service. For the past eight years, Redeemer and the other two congregations of the Triune Parish have been served by Rev. Mike Nelson as their pastor. Redeemer Lutheran Church of Kingston, will hold its final regular Sunday worship service this Sun- day, June 26, with a 10 a.m. service of celebration of its 107-year his- tory followed by a pot luck fellow- ship meal. Redeemer, a member of the three-point Triune Lutheran Parish has invited the members of the other two congregations, Grace Lutheran of rural South Haven and North Crow River of rural Cokato, to join them in this special worship service. Friends of the congregation from the sur- rounding area are also invited to join in this special service. Redeemer Lutheran was founded in 1904 by Finnish immi- grants in the Kingston commu- nity. There were affiliated with the Suomi Lutheran Synod until that synod merged with several other Lutheran groups to form the Lutheran Church in Amer- ica (LCA) in 1960. They remained affiliated with the LCA until 1988 when another merger formed the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. They have been affiliated with the ELCA since that time. Take two steps to support bee pollinators variety of native and introduced flowering species. Honey bees forage two miles on average from their colony Can 8,000-acre area), so the more flowering plants avail- able to them, the more honey they produce, the more pollen they obtain, and the healthier they are. Native bees prefer native plants, although they do forage on clo- vers, alfalfa and flowers also used by honey bees. Native bees and honey bees live well together, par- ticularly when they have access to an abundance of flowers. If you use pesticides, please read the label. It is against the law to apply some pesticides when bees are foraging in the area, and some compounds are more toxic to bees than others. The Farm Service Agency (FSA) and Natural Resources Conser- vation Service (NRCS) provide farm management advice with cash incentives to establish per- manent, non-crop vegetation on highly erodible lands. The Envi- ronmental Quality Incentives Pro- gram (EQIP) provides funding for the enhancement of bee habitat on private farms and ranches. Contact your local USDA-NRCS office for technical and financial assistance to establish pollinator habitat on your land. Also, visit the Xerces Society website for regional plant lists and a wealth of infor- mation on how to support bees in agricultural and urban land- scapes: tor-conservation. The University of Minnesota has maintained an internationally recognized research and Exten- sion program on honey bees since 1918. If you would like more infor- mation about bee research, visit the Bee Lab website at www.exten- sion. We stay healthy eating bee-pol- linated fruits and vegetables.

BSM By Maria Spivak, U of M Extension Bee populations are in decline in Minnesota and throughout the nation. As bees are vital pollina- tors of our fruits, vegetables, flow- ers and seed crops, it is critical that we support their health and diversity. Fortunately, there are two easy steps to take: Plant bee- friendly flowers, and reduce pesti- cide use. All bees, honey bees and native bees, need flowers for their nutri- tion. To stay healthy, bees need a wide diversity of flowering plants that produce pollen (their sole source of protein) and nectar (car- bohydrates) over the entire grow- ing season. Sadly, many bee- friendly flowers are contami- nated by insecticides, which can compromise bees' nervous and immune systems, making them vulnerable to viruses, parasites and other bee diseases. Honey bee colonies are dying from a combi- nation of nutritional stress, pes- ticides, diseases and parasites. Native bees are threatened by a lack of uncontaminated flowers and a lack of undisturbed nesting sites in the ground. In Minnesota, honey bees gain the most nutrition and make deli- cious honey from clovers, alfalfa, and basswood trees. Bees also col- lect pollen and nectar from a wide Freezing a tasty way to preserve berries By Debbie Botzek-Linn U of M Extension We know summer has arrived when we bite into a juicy sweet strawberry or tasty ripe raspberry. Food preservation season begins with preserving berries by freezing, canning, drying or as jams and jel- lies. The freezing of berries is a great place for a new food preserver to develop their preservation skills. Freezing saves time, nutrients, and can maintain the fresh taste and color of fruit. Preserve fruits as soon as possi- ble after harvest and at the peak of ripeness. To clean, place the berries in a colander, dip in cool water and gently swish and drain. Do not soak berries in water. Fruit can be frozen with sugar, in a sugar water syrup, or unsweet- ened. Unsweetened fruits lose color, flavor, and texture faster than those packed in sugar or sugar syr- ups. Sugar substitutes, if used in freezing fruit, add a sweet flavor but are not as beneficial in preserving color and texture as sugar. A convenient way to freeze ber- ries is to tray pack. Simply spread a single layer of berries on a shal- low tray and freeze. When fro- zen, promptly package, label, and return to the freezer. Most frozen fruits maintain high quality for 8 to 12 months when frozen in quality freezer containers. Be sure to main- tain your freezer temperature at 0F or below. Whether you have your own strawberry patch, visit a "pick-your- own," or stop by a farmers' mar- ket, you have wonderful access to berries, and that is a "berry" good thing.
