Notice! Off Topic Post.
I can sense that occasionally there’s going to be posts unrelated to issues and news of the lake. Such as the following.
The Minnesota Department of Commerce has accumulated quite a substantial stash of property, namely Unclaimed Property. Their website states the following:
“The Unclaimed Property Division is responsible for holding the abandoned or unclaimed funds or property until the rightful owner or heir is found. There is a one in 20 chance that you may have $100 or more coming to you from the state’s unclaimed property fund and not know it.”
Now normally I would not give these types of notices a second thought but… it said, “a one in 20 chance”!. I believe the last Powerball ticket I bought didn’t offer quite those odds.
Besides, this is not about ill gotten gains, this is Unclaimed Property.
So check it out. 1 in 20 will be glad they did.
