Crowds show up for open houses
The annual - and always popular - Holiday Open Houses at Dean's and Landmark Liquors attracted large crowds again this year. Dean's gave away free food samples and held prize drawings, while a number of vendors were offering samples of everything from beer to wine at Landmark Liquors. People were reporting spending upwards of an hour at both Dean's and Landmark, socializing and standing in long lines to sample products. Dean's was also offering photos with Santa and the Perham Police Reserves were on site to provide 'rides in Santa's car.' All donations made at Dean's on the night of the open house go to private and public schools in Perham.
