Friends & Neighbors - Ponsford resident receives 3M Community Volunteer Award


PONSFORD - In 1947, Ray Vlasak's family decided to take their first vacation at Veronen's Resort on Bad Medicine Lake.

A little less than 20 years later, in 1964, his parents bought a cabin on Bad Medicine, and nine years after that, purchased the property down the road from Veronen's that would become High Pines Resort.

"It's a small resort -- there are just three cabins -- and we only rent on a long-term basis," Vlasak noted. "The minimum length of stay is one month."
