Immediately following the golf tournament will be a reception, silent
auction, and dessert auction at the clubhouse. A dinner buffet will be
served at 6:30 p.m., followed by awards and a concert consisting of river
songs by Charlie Maguire, a New York native and folk singer.
In 1991, Maguire was appointed the official “Centennial Troubadour”
for the Minnesota State Park system. From 1995 to 2003, he was known as
the “Singing Ranger” of the National Park Service. An award-winning
musician, he has produced seven albums, including “Stepping Stones”
in honor of the parks. He has been a regular on Minnesota Public Radio’s
“Prairie Home Companion” and featured on CBS Evening News,
Car Talk, Hometime, and other nationally broadcast programs.
SCVRTA, an all-volunteer organization supported solely through membership
dues, grants and fundraising events, serves as an educational resource
for the history, culture, and natural resources of the Lower St. Croix
National Scenic Riverway. It also works to increase the economic impact
of tourism in our service area community through cooperative promotion
of the Scenic St. Croix Valley (www.saintcroixriver.com).
