Community Calendar March 26, 2020

A note about community events:

The Announcer will not list the activities and events that are canceled; it assumed that most planned events are canceled, per CDC mandates for safe social distancing. However individual inquiries should be directed toward appropriate planners. See, for the latest coronavirus coverage.


Help others struggling with coronavirus challenges

In response to residents and organizations being overwhelmed by challenges related to the coronavirus, the Luverne Area Chamber is lining up volunteers to shop and/or deliver for those individuals who are unable to leave their homes.

The intent is to coordinate this as a service to residents supporting our local businesses. A protocol will minimize contact between volunteers and people requesting services. To join the list of volunteers, call the Chamber at (507-283-4061).
