Seeking Summer Housing...Two former Gusties, now retired, are seeking furnished housing for summer 2018 in the St. Peter or Metro area. The couple would be happy to house sit for you if you will be absent. Their needs are few: bed, bath with shower, kitchen, hopefully Internet, and maybe cable. They are non-smoking, have no pets, and are real "clean freaks." Contact LeAnn (Peterson) or Kirk Metzger if interested.

"Plugs" is maintained as a forum by which members of the Gustavus community may offer goods and services to others in the community, or seek the same from them. It is not meant to accommodate ads or announcements from area businesses such as real estate agents and retailers, although from time to time such announcements may be published when deemed to be of particular interest to the community.
