Sunset wine tasting fundraiser

The Silver Lake Improvement Association will be hosting a sunset wine tasting fundraiser event on Sept. 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. This event will be hosted by the Silver Lake Improvement Association and Furlong Liquors, and will be held at the southeast corner of Silver Lake Park on 19th Ave. in North St. Paul.

The cost to attend is $25 for two people or $15 for an individual. Those who attend should bring a lawn chair. 

The proceeds of this event will go towards the off-shore lake treatment in 2019 of invasive plants, such as curly-leaf pondweed and Eurasian Milfoil, in Silver Lake. 

In past years, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has issued grant money to Minnesota lakes for the treatment of invasive plants. Silver Lake has typically received enough funds from the DNR to help cover this treatment expense. Since 2016 the amount of DNR grant funds for lake treatment was cut and Silver Lake has not receive any money these past two years. The Silver Lake Improvement Association was able to pay for those treatments with the funds in its account however these funds are depleted.
