Harvey and Pat Swiggum, visitors from Wanamingo, Minnesota, check out a local recreation map with Michael, a long-time volunteer at the Tourism Powell River office on Joyce Avenue. The Swiggums are a long way from home – Wanamingo is a small town in Goodhue County, Minnesota, situated along the north fork of the Zumbro River. Iowa is to the south of Minnesota, North and South Dakota are to the west, and the provinces of Ontario and Manitoba are directly to the north. This is not the Swiggum’s first trip to the Powell River area. Each time they visit, the couple endeavours to see another corner of our beautiful community and regional district.
