Three small and family owned businesses were devastated by a fire on April 13, in Grand Marais.  The Crooked Spoon Cafe, Picnic and Pine Gift Shop, and White Pine North Gift Shop were all total losses.  Thankfully, no one was injured in the fire.

It's going to be a hard enough year as it is for tourism on that part of the North Shore with sheltering in place and social distancing, this just adds to the stress.  A GoFundMe has been setup to help with all of the costs associated with the fires and funds raised will be split evenly between them.

A link to the GoFundMe Page is here.  You can also check back at it for updates including other fundraising events that may be upcoming to help out the small community businesses.
