“Swingin’ for Parmly”

June 28, 2017

What an exciting day for the 22nd annual “Swingin for Parmly” Golf Tournament held at the Chisago Lakes Golf Course. As golfers arrived at the course on June 15, 2017, no one knew that for the first time in the history of the tournament two teams would have the exact same score.

Nineteen teams in two divisions came out for the scramble challenge and to tryout their golf skills. As the tie for first place unfolded on the course, golfers tried their luck at the opportunity to win $10,000 by scoring a hole-in-one at either of two holes sponsored by Chisago Hardware and Gregory Contracting. Tom Boufford in the Men’s Division, and Kim Rathsack and Denny Seefeldt in the Mixed Division made longest drives. Sinking the longest putts were Dave Skinner, Men’s Division, and Brenda Carlson and Gene Hallberg for the Mixed Division. Hallberg Family Foundation came in at four under to take third place in the Mixed Division followed by Chisago Lakes Rotary at five under for second place and Wally Carlson & Sons BP securing first place at seven under. Bratrud Construction came in at seven under for the Men’s Division third place. Todd Kuepper’s, Chisago Lakes Golf Course, without saying who the two teams were announced the tie saying, “this is the first time in 22 years that two teams have scored the same on each hole making a scorecard tie breaker impossible.” Tied at eight under were Dale Fredell’s team and Plastic Products Company’s. To determine first place Dave Skinner of Plastic Products and Mark Bye of Dale Fredell’s team took to the indoor putting green. With the room filled with intrigued golfers, Fredell’s team came out victorious.

This year is the fifth year the Golf Committee presented a “Special Recognition Award” to honor individuals or businesses for their support of the “Swingin for Parmly fundraising golf tournament, overall support for Parmly, and the Chisago Lakes area. This year Kim Rathsack, Vitalize! Wellness Centre Director presented the award to Tom Wilson for Grandstrand Funeral Home. Past recipients are Gordy and Vida Meland, Don Bungum, Chuck Zimmerman, Marlene Smith, and Wally Carlson.

Thanks to this year’s tournament, residents, tenants, and staff will benefit with updated intra-campus cable equipment for the broadcasting of Chapel Services, campus activities and events, along with afternoon movies and more.

Thank You from South Chisago County Meals on Wheels

November 22, 2016

South Chisago County Meals on Wheels extends a heartfelt “Thank You” to Scandia and Chisago Lakes area residents for supporting the 2016 “Swedish Meatballs for Parmly” fall dinner held at Elim Lutheran Church.

With appreciation and gratitude, “Thank You” to the Scandia Food Shelf Elim Lutheran Church and the Stacy Lions Club for their donations to food costs. A special “Thank You” is extended to the local businesses and community members for providing the Scandinavian Auction with in-kind donations. To the many volunteers whom helped plan, prepare and serve the meal, especially LeRoy Mitchell, Colleen Guilfoile, Carol Ann Johnson, and Carol Seefeldt. Thank You!

The “Swedish Meatballs for Parmly” raised funding for the South Chisago County Meals on Wheels program, beginning its 40th year in 2017. This program provides home delivered meals to a 10-mile radius of the Parmly campus including the towns of Shafer, Center City, Lindstrom, Chisago City, Wyoming, and Stacy and is the only non-profit home-delivered meal provider within the area.

High quality nutritional two component hot/cold lunches served Monday through Friday, 52 weeks per year between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., excluding holidays. Two component cold/frozen meals are available for delivery on Fridays for the weekends. All meals provide a cold meal brown bag with milk or juice, bread, butter, salad, dessert, and a hot or frozen entrée providing protein, starch, and vegetable.

Currently, more than 140 community older adults volunteer on a rotation schedule to assist with packing and delivering meals.

Title III (federal) and Elderly Waiver/CADI (state) funding support South Chisago County Meals on Wheels service area. Participants who qualify for either program will not have service denied based on their ability or willingness to contribute towards the cost of the meal.

To qualify to receive meals through Title III funding, applicants must be 60 and over and may have little or no support at their home on a consistent basis. Applicants cannot be receiving services from another agency that includes meal preparation.

Caseworkers determine elderly Waiver/CADI participants. This eligibility typically applies to individuals who are unable to prepare their own meals, have no other person available to do so, or when the most cost effective method is to provide individuals with a nutritionally adequate meal.

Full price meals are available for individuals, at any age, who are unable to prepare their meals due to an illness, disability or injury.

Again, all of us at Ecumen Parmly LifePointes and South Chisago County Meals on Wheels extend a heartfelt “Thank you”.
