ClownSmall Town, USA.

One of the perks of small town life is an annual festival. In Cook, MN it’s called “Timber Days” and it’s held the second weekend in June.

The success of these events is largely dependent upon the local support of local folks. From organizing the parade to tending a greasy grill in the Little League hamburger stand to recruiting candidates for “Miss Timber Days”, the unique atmosphere and attraction of these smile-inducing events can be attributed to the contributions of local volunteers.

Hats off to each and every one of them. It’s efforts like theirs that keeps the small town experience as enjoyable as ever.
