More than 200 women expected to attend events in Mentor.

Wednesday evening was a first for the Crookston Public Library. Bonnie Stewart, with Sisters Sojourn, hosted a wine and cheese tasting alongside Sonja from the Irishman's Shanty.

    Sisters Sojourn was started by Bonnie Stewart of Fosston and Jo McFarlin of Mentor after they shared a vision of women connecting with each other through workshops and events.

    They’ll host their annual fall event at the historic Mentor School on Sept. 13-14. More than 200 women are expected to attend.

    The two-day event was created in 2011 to “celebrate the creativity and commitment that women bring to their communities, families, and friends.”
