Echo -- A Village with Volunteerism at its Best
by Kari AndersonMuscatine, Iowa
My tiny hometown of Echo, Minnesota, was recently featured on "On The Road Again" KSTP TV.
Creative local ladies have started a volunteer non-profit grocery store and a charter school has been growing steadily and now includes all 12 grades. It is so great to see the majestic old brick school building being used and profiting this community when so many others in small neighboring towns are being abandoned or torn down.
Echo is such a vital part of my life...after going there every school day for over 12 years...kindergarten too, you know. So many memories...homecoming parades, marching band practice, outdoor movies in the summer, outdoor concerts, the "Hurry Back Inn" (sadly no longer there), doctor visits at Dr. Hudecs and dentist appointments at Dr. Clausen.
Echo is still not a thriving metropolis but I'm thrilled that it is still alive and well.
