Due to technical difficulties, the fall brochure did not get included this week in the Brown County Reminder, but will be in next week. Hopefully the small ad on Sept. 3 provided information for the happenings for the weekend and coming week. By the time you read this information, the online form of the brochure should be posted on the Sleepy Eye School website.
