On Thursday, Aug. 30, Haven Homes of Maple Plain hosted its 4th annual Pig Roast for residents of the senior living facility and community members. A free pulled-pork dinner was served from 5:30-7 p.m., and live music was performed from 6-7:30 p.m. by Brooke and Halle, a duo of Orono High School freshmen who sing and play guitar and ukulele. At 6:30 p.m., participants released monarch butterflies in honor of loved ones as Haven Homes Chaplain James Vogt recited a short prayer. The event included a cotton candy machine and face-painting for kids. (Diana Stein/Laker Pioneer)
