Shepherd of the Hills celebrates its 50th
On Sept. 20, a local church congregation will celebrate its golden anniversary. Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Shoreview is about to turn the big 5-0.
The first ever Shepherd of the Hills service was held on Sept. 19, 1965 at Island Lake School. 154 people attended this inaugural service. Fast-forward 50 years and the church is still going strong.
Cities are in the process of approving proposed tax levies for 2016. The levy numbers being approved are maximum increases — once approved, the numbers can be decreased but not increased before their final approval at the end of the year.
