Summer is a particularly special time of year at Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation (SMIF). It’s the time when we have the joy of distributing close to 20,000 books to organizations serving young children across our 20-county region. Early Literacy not only lays a strong foundation for...
In one of my back roads trips across Minnesota this summer, I experienced something that may be the most jaw dropping experience ever. After leaving the Rock County History Center in Luverne, I thought I had died and went to nutcracker heaven. It’s the home of one of the largest and most colorful...
I hope everyone is enjoying the July 4th holiday. The DCI is arriving a little late this week as the postal service is not delivering mail on the holiday. Still many of you are probably enjoying some vacation time, whether it is just taking Friday off or scheduling your summer vacation for this...
