Veterans Day Fundraiser for the Blue Star Mother’s

November 20, 2012 by SpicerCastle

Veterans Day - Blue Star Mothers FundraiserNovember is a time for remembering our war heroes who have served our country.  The Blue Star Mother’s do a fantastic job of supporting our troops.  Here is a brief synopsis of the Blue Star Mother’s Organization.  It is a support through service organization.  There are members from all over the United States.  Moms joining together to share their pride, their devotion and their worries for our sons and daughters currently serving in all branches of the Armed Forces of the United States, and our sons and daughters who are now veterans.

These families volunteer their time and efforts to send care boxes to our troops, support families while loved ones are away, and provide fleece blankets for our veterans just to name a few of the loving ways this organization supports our troops.  I can imagine the love that a veteran feels when a member visits with a fleece blanket or the troops overseas who open a care box filled with items from home.

This will be our third annual fundraiser.  Sample our great BBQ Ribs and flatbread with garlic, melted cheese and assortment of fresh vegetables along with other favorite goodies to enjoy.  The children enjoy telling Santa what they want for Christmas and the troops will enjoy getting their drawings that were included in the care boxes. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Open House Fundraiser filled with lots of laughs, fun and food at the Spicer Castle Inn and Restaurant, 11600 Indian Beach Rd., Spicer, MN  56288.   Monday, November 14, 2011 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

Now is the time to have fun while many husbands and boyfriends are hunting or watching football games. Why not laugh outloud, enjoy great food, sip wine and do fun stuff with the girls?  Visit Spicer Castle Inn and participate in one of our hilarious interactive 5-course murder mystery dinners filled with suspense and intrigue.   Stay for the night and enjoy our complimentary Happy Hour and Hearty Breakfast.

While in our area stop by Mr. B’s Chocolatier to sample fine Swiss and Belgian Chocolates .  Why not bring home a little something special to your sweetheart?  Take in a wine tasting at Glacial Ridge Winery and while you’re there pick apples at the orchard and purchase a caramel apple or two for the little ones.

This will be one of the best girlfriend getaways you’ve planned.  Your friends will be talking about their trip to Spicer Castle Inn for years to come.

 

Experience spectacular fall colors in Central Minnesota

September 28, 2011 by SpicerCastle

“While most trees and shrubs have just started to put on their fall colors, the red or smooth sumac along the Glacial Ridge Trail already is sporting firey red and orange colors.  Red Sumac turns color before other fall foliage.

The DNR predicts the best fall color in 10 years for 2011!” States the Lakes Area Review.

Looking for a spectacular driving route?  The Glacial Ridge Trail is a beautiful driving route that meanders through the prairie and woods that is absolutely gorgeous right now and hopefully will last another week.

While the weather is still nice a bike ride or hike on the Glacial Lakes State Trail or the 12 mile trail that follows around Green Lake would be quite refreshing.

The lakes are calm this time of year and a canoe trip to view the fall colors would be spectacular.

If you are looking for a beautiful fall outing be sure to include West Central Minnesota in your plans.
