Kudos to the Chamber and partners for summer of fun

Star Herald Editorial

As we linger in the Dog Days of Summer, the Star Herald applauds the Luverne Area Chamber and its volunteers and community partners for organizing a full summer of entertainment and activities.
Rock County already enjoys a full slate of community entertainment with Buffalo Days, Hills Friendship Days, Hardwick Jubilee Days and the new Beaver Days in Beaver Creek. In between, there’s the Fourth of July at The Lake, Hot Dog Night, the Rock County Fair and others.
In addition, plenty of private ventures welcome public participation. For example, there are regular Take 16 block parties, church picnics, ATV rides, class reunions and other festive gatherings that advertise, “All are welcome.”
Add to these our Palace Theatre and Verne Drive-In lineup of movies and bands, and the Blue Mounds State Park weekends of naturalist programs. There is literally never a dull moment in Rock County.
But just in case we needed something a little more in the middle of the week, in the middle of the day, the Chamber launched its Free Summer Events at the Plaza on Main Street under the canopy.
From live music and story time to Zumba and yard games, there was something for everyone in the itinerary, which continues through the end of summer.
For example, don’t miss the “Sip & Ride Golf Cart Coffee Tours” departing from the plaza at 8 and 10 a.m. Saturday for a Tales of the Graves golf cart tour. (Reserve a seat by calling the Chamber at 507-283-4061.) It’s free.
On Monday, work out your weekend kinks with “Stick Fitness,” a free exercise class hosted by Luverne Aquatic & Fitness at the Plaza on Main from 10 to 11 a.m.
Free is the key word here. Great entertainment at a great location. For free.
Thanks to the organization of the Chamber and a long list of willing community partners and participants.
