Bart and Lisa Taylor named Crosslake Days royalty


After competing in the Crosslake Days Chili Cookoff for 18 years, Bart Taylor and his wife, Lisa, will be taking a new role in the annual event — the two were named Crosslake Days royalty..

Bart and Lisa, longtime residents of Crosslake, both grew up with family cabins on the Whitefish Chain. It was in Crosslake that the two met at a Lions Club spaghetti dinner.

The Taylors say the whole family loves living on the Whitefish Chain.
