Maple Grove Magazine March/April 2024

This issue of Maple Grove Magazine might just be my favorite of those I’ve curated over the past several months of serving as editor. These pages touch on several important topics, such as multigenerational living and global cuisine, and we meet many faces across Maple Grove, all of whom have inspired me in different ways.

Writer Kristie Smith introduces you to 95-year-old Ray Henderson, who began skydiving at age 90. Henderson offers words of wisdom for the younger generation and touches on why he started free falling. Henderson shares his own most beautiful love story and reminds us that love is a gift not to be taken for granted.

Meet Sharon Kotula and her family. The local residents make up a unique familial blend, including foster and adopted children, as well as multigenerational living. Writer Mollee Francisco shares Kotula’s story and gets expert insight into the benefits of living with a variety of generations.

Solomon Hailie recalls the flames that destroyed his St. Paul restaurant—yet ignited a new supportive community at Bole Ethiopian Cuisine and Bole Express.

That’s not all, readers. In between these pages, you’ll find other heart-warming stories, design inspiration and more.

Cheers to spring and the gift of family,

Hailey Almsted
