The wine that won the Gover- nor's Cup was Little Iza, a light, sweet wine made at Millner Her- itage Vineyard and Winery by ]on Millner. The wine is named after his daughter, Izabella Millner.

"I make Little Iza with mostly La Crescent, but there is a little bit of Vignoles blended in as well," Millner said.

"The entire intent of this is to compete everyone's Fronte- nac or Marquette or other cold- hardy varieties against each other. So many of the participants that competed were from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, New York, Quebec and other various colder climates," he said. By winning the Governor's Cup, the Kimball winery has the distinction for making the best wine in Minnesota. "I think it was a couple hun- dred wines entered from within the state, and the Governor's Cup is the best one of all those Min- St. Anthony's Picnic in the Park Despite the very hot weather, St. Anthony's Picnic in the Park was a wonderful day of celebra- tion.

Stan's Country Dutchmen and Wild 99 provided our musical entertainment. Every- one enjoyed the 50/50 raffle, Bingo and Pull Tabs throughout the day. We had fun at the Lucky At Cards Booth, the Bean Bag Tournament, the Minute to Win It challenge and the Kids Games. Thank you to everyone who came to share the day with us. We had a lot of fun all day long. Thanks to all our parish- ioners who worked so hard to make the Picnic in the Park such a success. Super thanks to the Wat- kins Fire Department for all their help setting up the park, and to our super crew of cleaners on Monday morning. Thanks too, to Farmers State Bank for sponsoring Wild 97.

Seeing so many people work- ing together to make this event happen - and doing it with smiles on their faces, reminds you of what a great parish and great commu- nity we have. What a blessing!
