Josh and Porterites, It was great fun to celebrate the 125th at Porter. We are sorry that we did not have more of the History Books. It was a DIY project and the amount of copying to make more books was just too time-consuming and expensive. If you want a book and know of someone who is willing to share theirs and let you take it apart, you are welcome to make copies for yourself. It was great to visit with so many of the "old-timers". If you have history that you would like to share about the town or your family, I would love to receive it. Their might just be a sequel to the book. I especially would like to hear from those who have lived in Porter for the last 33 years since I moved to St. Michael in 1973. My e-mail is lanvan4577@aol.com. Or, you can get my mailing address from Mildred Schoneman if you want to write or send me something. Thanks again for the great memories.

Was at the 100th Celebration and plan to attend the 125th. Also I would like to know if the city was going to dig up the time capsole that was buried at the old post office. I would like to get my Grandfathers things that he put in there. He used to have the locker in Porter.

I was back in Porter last Summer (July 2004) along with the whole Goslar family. We got to reminisce about the good old days of growing up in Porter. The Goslar home was sold at that time, but we still have wonderful memories of our lives in Porter that will remain in our hearts forever.

My dad's sister Sadie Rassmussen was a long time resident of rural Porter and well known in the area. When I used to travel the area for business I would contact Sadie and we would have lunch, usually in Marshall. However one trip out there I stopped by her house and we had lunch in Porter. She claims people in town were wondering who she was having lunch with and she told them I was from the IRS. I am certain the people of the commnunity were familar and Sadie was probably consider to have a lot of character.

For anyone new to the area. congratulations on picking a great area to live in . Until this last fall I didnt think about what a great place this is. When my husband was ill and when he passed away it became very clear to me what a caring community we have here. I have been so humbled by the outpouring of careing people, I am so glad to be here. So if you are new to the town and area, "welcome to the warmest most careing place to live".

Grandson of Frederick and Bessie Meyers and son of Frederick C. Meyers. Grandparents were post masters in porter during the 1950's. Father moved to Minneapolis in early 1930's. Story goes that my grandfather also had an opportunity to go into partnership with Culligan, but my grandmother would not let him spend the $100 to do so.

HEY EVERYBODY!! Well...i've been home now for almost a month and I miss Porter SOOO much! I've had such a great year with all of you. One more time a BIG thank you to all of you for making this year so great for me!!! Everything in The Netherlands is going pretty good. College just started today and I'm trying to find an apartment right now (which is pretty hard, since 20% of the inhabitants of the city is a college student...you can figure i'm not the only one looking for something). Anyways... I just wanted to say hi and let you guys know i think about you a lot...I MISS YOU!

Lots of love, Marloes.

Hello to all. I was born on a farm just east of Porter in 1936. We moved to 'town' when I was four. My father Carl Nomeland worked at the Porter Bank (I think it was a branch of the Canby Bank), and my mother Beatrice worked at the telephone exchange. Had many good times playing in the creek with my cousins. Glad to see this site up and running. If anyone wants to talk about the 'old days', send an E-mail to me at lnomeland@aol.com

Thanks for such a nice site for Porter. My great grandparents lived in Porter and farmed there until grandpa Warren Parmley died there in 1918. It's a fun site and I enjoyed it very much. Jan Lenning

It is a privilege for me to be able to serve Bethel Lutheran, as interim pastor. Even though I am only in town two days a week, I can see the vital ministry of Bethel at work. I pray that I can contribute a bit along the way.

Porter is an impressive place, with great guys at the Co-op and great food at Arlene's.

I had a great childhood while living in Porter. The area farmers were so lucky at that time to have Dean, Danny, and myself working for them. We prayed for rain all the time so that we could go fishing.

I lived in Porter and raised my children there for nearly ten years. Most of my memories are very happy ones! I met some very wonderful people and am sorry that things didn't work out so that I could still be there. Porter is a up and coming village.

This is a pretty good web page, for a town that doesn't have to many people living but at least we all know each other and this is a good way for others to move here and see such a successful town porter is. Good job bro

I was born in this town and have lived here all my life. There has been many changes over the years. But having our little town on the web is really something .My daughter Rhonda brought me a computer in October. I never thought I could use one but now I don't want to be without it. I guess your never to old to learn something new.
