 Lars Stromayer
Lars Woodwerks provides a wide range of custom wood working services.  The focus is on fine hand made furniture using locally harvested hardwoods, and other home furnishings such as turned bowls and cutting boards.  The style ranges from traditional Mission furniture to more contemporary designs combining different woods.  Pieces often include boards that are "live sawn" with the natural edges of the log still intact.  These subtle curves add just the right amount of softness and interest.

 SAVE (Suicide Awareness
  Voices of Education)

Through the work of Bill Metz, member of the CVVC, local cyclists became aware of, and involved with, an organization called SAVE.  
SAVE was one of the nation's first organizations dedicated to the prevention of suicide and was a co-founding member of the National Council for Suicide Prevention. Through raising awareness and educating the public, we can SAVE lives. 
Bill created a book called Saturday Morning Rides, containing artwork and route descriptions for rides around the Northfield area. Proceeds from sales of the book (downloaded from the linked page) go to SAVE.
