Somethings we can expect, and somethings are just an upset.  Many expected the heavily favored St. Thomas Academy Hockey team to win last night.  They played Duluth East in the Minnesota State High School Boys Hockey Tournament.  St. Thomas was ahead going into the final minutes of the game when Duluth came from behind and scored the winning goal.

Previously I spoke about the idea of planning.  Planning for the future is always on our minds.  That planning can take on many forms.  We try to plan for everything:  our future, the futures of our children and all that comes in between.  With that in mind,  Copperfield Hill will be hosting Thrivent Financial as they present a three-part educational series focusing on retirement planning.    This program is free and open to the public. Please come and join us for this great educational opportunity! Contact Charlotte Hoes at (763) 277-1008 to RSVP.  Topics will include:
