McLeod for Tomorrow
Board News:
NEW BOARD MEMBERS: The McLeod For Tomorrow Board of Directors has a new "face." We have four new board members: Kari Johnson (Security Bank & Trust); Justin Beck (McLeod County IT Dept.); Marie Zimmerman (SWIF); and Kyle Sparby (Twin Cities & Western Railroad). We welcome them to the board!!

RETIRING BOARD MEMBERS: Along with welcoming our new members, we need to thank our outgoing board members: Christy Christensen, Kerry Ward, Janet Betsinger, and Jeff Shurtleff. These four represent many years on the Steering Committee which preceded the forming of an actual Board of Directors. Much credit is due them for the evolution of the organization we see today.

BOARD RETREAT: Due to the amazing winter that descended upon us in late January, our retreat plans had to be rescheduled. This is will be the first Board Retreat since we've only had a "Board" since mid-2017. We'll keep you in the loop on our progress.
The 7 th  Annual Winterfest Event held on February 9, 2019 was another huge success.  With a low temp of 18 degrees below zero and warming up to 6 degrees, the attendance was excellent.  Discussions with vendors said they were sending their spouses home to get more inventory to sell and they would be back again in 2020.  Lots of snow provided a fresh dogsled area along with a huge snow mountain to climb. The U of M provided 2 raptor shows as they have in the past which were very popular for everyone.  Other animals joining us inside were Alpacas and baby goats.  Free face painting, a coloring contest, a clay snowpeople craft, and many free games to play kept the children busy.  Planning for the 8 th  annual 2020 event has already begun!
