This map of Frazee identifies current sidewalks. The green lines designate sidewalks in good condition, the blue lines are in OK condition and the red lines are in need of repair. The purple lines represent city limits.
The city of Frazee is working in conjunction with the Frazee-Vergas School District to build a walking path from the Red Willow Heights residential area to the elementary school.
Lori Thorp, Sandy Eppling, Mary Seiler, Martin Thorp, Roger Thorp, Rose Ebeltoft, Roger Herbst and Ike Fischer recently attended an easement signing with the Minnesota Land Trust.
Ike Fischer stands next to a ski trail sign. Fischer and his family have allowed the public on their land for cross country skiing for many years. The trails are groomed with professional grade equipment by rural Frazee resident Tom Watson.
The beauty will be preserved.
Three generations of a Frazee family came together last week and inked an agreement to keep almost 500 acres and 3½ miles of shoreline undeveloped and in its natural state.

The Frazee Event Center was certainly an appropriate venue Friday night for the Frazee Lions Club’s 40th anniversary dinner.
