This long-anticipated history of the village of Lake Elmo, Minnesota was released in 2013 and is now in its fourth printing, to the delight of happy readers. "Memories of Lake Elmo" is a collection of stories gathered word-for-word with recordings and transcriptions of more than 120 long-time residents of the small town of Lake Elmo. During the project, VanDemmeltraadt conducted more than 100 interviews by phone, in-person or via email. Some persons interviewed had family who lived in Lake Elmo for five or six generations. All of the stories have been verified by historical documents, and include more personal information because these people were there. Also included are a number of maps, plus almost 80 photos, and the appendix includes a listing of all elected officials of the town since it was legally incorporated in 1926.
