A graphic advertising the 2019 Focus on Maple Grove photo contest.

It's that time of year again: The Focus on Maple Grove photo contest has returned for its 9th year of beautiful photos of our community.

In the 2015 Focus on Maple Grove photo contest, Kim Seeger won first place in the Pets category with this photo of her 3-year-old golden retriever, Levi.

The first and only time Chris Spah paddleboarded on Fish Lake was a one-of-a-kind experience. Venturing onto the lake at dusk, Spah paddled alongside a group of 15 people on a tour put on by the Three Rivers Park District.

The editor’s family—Nate, Sage, Huck and Piper Haynes— made sure the latest issue of Maple Grove Magazine made it to the iconic canyon in Arizona during their vacation.

With an average annual rainfall of 6,813 mm on 182 days a year, Milford Sound is known as the wettest inhabited place in New Zealand and one of the wettest in the world.

Maple Grove magazine is full of reflections of the community. We are the subjects of the stories and pictures, and sometimes we are also the photographers.

After giving birth to three children, experiencing the devastating loss of an infant and surviving late stage breast cancer, Amber Johnson found herself at a checkup, overweight and out of shape.

The 2016 contest is now closed.

Every time she's near Weaver Lake Park, Mindy Gallagher is reminded of how grateful she is to live nearby. “We take a personal tone with the lake, we feel like it’s ours,” she says. When looking at Maple Grove houses five years ago, the Gallaghers found their current home.

Levi caught a flash of movement ahead to his right, followed by hushed voices, and immediately crouched behind a tree. Alerted, the team knelt in dense brush. He peered slowly around the trunk to gauge the timing of a possible attack.
