Wednesday, July 19th: Good morning Fish Lake Woods. The annual Aquatennial Celebration kicks off today with various events in Minneapolis. Some of which include a blood drive, a tennis classic, food trucks & lawn games, the Torchlight 5k, then followed by the Torchlight Parade. The Minnesota Aquatennial was started to celebrate the city's lakes, rivers, and streams and while the city still incorporates 'water-loving' events, it also includes events centered around Minneapolis culture, family, and fun. Here's the link to the official website with all the details for the 4-day celebration!

The project with begin with pressure washing the exteriors of your homes. This will begin on Wednesday, July 5th and continue through Friday, July 7th. We kindly as that you please remove any small personal/fragile items off of your decks and front entry stoop. Also, though it is not necessary to move items off of your deck completely, we would greatly appreciate it if you moved items away from your siding areas to allow the crew safe access to the included areas.
