— Sunny skies and mild temperatures set the stage for this year's Porchfest festivities in downtown New London over the weekend. Toe-tappers of all ages gathered on the porches of area participating businesses, as musical acts performed free concerts from late morning well into the evening hours.
The full day of live music is held to celebrate the life of former New London Mayor Bill Gossman, who passed away in 2020. This year's event was hosted by the New London Arts & Culture Alliance.
Residents on Second Street Southeast in Willmar and surrounding areas will be able to voice their opinions on whether or not the street should be a one-way once reconstruction is complete. A special meeting is scheduled 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 22, to take comments.
