As the calendar turns to August, many families start thinking back-to-school and how much busier their nights and weekends will get once extracurricular activities kick off. Middle school and high school athletics are a way of life for many families in our area. With this comes the risk of injury from playing sports. Student athletes are lucky to have a teammate who not only looks out for them but helps treat injuries that do happen. Even though they don't play the game, athletic trainers are an integral part of the team.

This month, Sydney Fritz, a designer at McNeal & Friends, invited us to gather in the garden and meet her grandmother and avid gardener, Cathy Fritz. Located near Detroit Lakes, Cathy's lifelong passion to create an outdoor oasis intrigues nearly everyone who passes by; whether they stop to take a photograph, smell the roses, or simply gather advice - everyone is welcome to marvel at the fruits of her labor. To design the perfect garden getaway, Sydney Fritz set the table with some of the season's freshest finds from McNeal & Friends, letting floral bring together three generations of family.
