Minnesota State Directors
Hello from Minnesota. The Minnesota Loons are thoroughly enjoying our rally season. In May we gathered in St. Cloud, Minnesota for our traditional first rally of the season. A highlight was our visit to St. Cloud State University where we were treated to an excellent show at their planetarium. In the evenings we enjoyed wonderful food, card bingo, and bean bag baseball (even though the guys won). Many thanks to Steinbring Motorcoach for our fantastic dinner. We’ve also rallied in Fergus Falls, Minnesota which is celebrating its 150th Anniversary this year. The group enjoyed a motorcoach tour of historic sites and homes around Fergus Falls ending with a visit to the Otter Tail Historical Museum.
Our Minnesota State Rally takes place August 11-15 in Prior Lake at the Dakotah Meadows RV Park. We are planning a visit to the Mdewakanto Sioux Cultural Center where we will learn about the history, culture, and language of the Dakota people through their eyes. Channeling the inner child in all of us we will visit Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store. Otherwise known as Jim’s Apple Farm, this family-owned store dates back to the 1930’s and offers 27,000 square feet of merchandise. Candy is the main attraction with 3,000 options to choose from. Also available are specialty sodas in a variety of flavors. You will also find other local Minnesota products like honey, maple syrup, and of course apples from the family’s orchard. We will also be visiting the Chaska Curling Center. Curling’s roots in Minnesota go back to the states’ territorial days and was a main attraction at the inaugural Winter Carnival in 1886 and remains popular to this day.
The Region Four Rally takes place in beautiful Lanesboro, Minnesota on September 15-18. We hope to see you there.
