On Aug. 8, Mazie Hahn, 10, and her cousin Ashlyn Peterson, 7, took a minute to pet Duke, the deputy canine of Scott Berg from the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office. Duke and Berg had just finished their K9 demonstration at Rush City Park, where a large audience learned how a dog can be used for tracking and sniffing out drugs. Duke was trained specifically to grab and hold.
A nice turnout of folks found plenty of things to see and do at Rush City Community Appreciation Night Aug. 8 at the city park in downtown Rush City. This year’s event featured fun activities, free food and cool prizes.
