One of Rochester, Minnesota's favorite celebrities, 2nd Street Joe, has been out waving his flags to cheer us up every day.  Now, it is time to return the favor because he has a loved one in the ICU at St. Mary's and needs our support now more than ever.  Thanks to a local bakery, you can show support by ordering some delicious cookies!

ICYMI - Second Street Joe Was Waving HIs Flags On Top of the Canadian Honker Restaurant

You can only see it from high above but on top of the Canadian Honker Restaurant is a sign that says "Get Well Soon - God Bless".  It's in the perfect place for patients and visitors at St. Mary's to see and maybe have some encouragement when they need it the most.  Well, 2nd Street Joe was up on that roof, next to that sign the other day to spread some more love to his brother who is in the ICU.  You can read the entire story and see photos here, but it sounds like Joe is not able to visit him right now.
