Dave Simpkins was a huge fan of Sinclair Lewis ... a very famous and award winning early 20th century author. He grew up in Sauk Centre on the Lake Wobegon Trail when the trail was still the vibrant Great Northern Railroad bringing goods to and from the area along with lots of people.
Dave was active in in promoting and staging the annual Sinclair Lewis Writers Conference in Sauk Centre each year.
We lost a great man this past week... Dave Simpkins! Dave was great newspaper man. He loved small town America and was a huge outdoors supporter especially of trails. He served as president of the Lake Wobegon Trails Association from 2001 to 2005. He was the owner and publisher of the Minnesota Trails magazine for many years.
Dave was a huge friend and supporter of the Lake Wobegon Trails. He helped to not only promote the trails but was a friend of the trails and helped to continue to encourage expansion of the trails especially connections to other trails.
