Shoreview Memories...

In anticipation of our 25th anniversary, we are looking for your memories of life in Shoreview.  If you would like to add a memory or two, please let us know.  The memories can be long or short, we just want to capture as many as possible.  To pique your interest check out a childhood memory from Doug Jenness.
