Miller Manufacturing celebrates 10 years as part of Glencoe

Miller Manufacturing recently celebrated its 10th year as part of the Glencoe community. The company’s manufacturing and distribution facility first came to town in 2005.
Marketing Communications Manager Ashley Lenz explained the move allowed the company to consolidate its facilities in Dassel, Savage and Amery, Wisconsin.
In its 10 years in Glencoe, the facility went from 75 employees to more than 350. Lenz explained this was possible through organic growth.
“It was all by acquisition of other companies and new products,” she said.

Minnesota Nice starts boxing up care packages for soldiers

Minnesota Nice is already packaging up boxes to send to soldiers, according to local organizers.
One of those organizers, Linda Krueger of Glencoe, said the local group is already receiving e-mails that new units have been sent to remote locations where supplies are very limited — the nearest PX can be up to 60 miles away and it is very dangerous to travel.

Panthers snag top section seed despite defeat

A 7-6 loss to Litchfield on Thursday, Oct. 8 left the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team facing the prospect of losing out on a No. 1 seed and a first-round bye in the upcoming Section 2AAA Tournament. 
However, that loss, GSL’s first to the Dragons since 2005, proved of little consequence as the closest contender to that top seed – Providence Academy – also lost the final game of its regular season the very next night.
