“Mower Refreshed Destination” at the 2012 Mower County Fair is being explored! This unique addition to the fair would provided wellness resources and activities from around the county for all ages, healthy snacks and mini wellness classes to explore.
Connecting is what the Shooting Star Bike Trail is all about. The trail connects several of our county’s communities, it connects us to the natural beauty of the prairie and farmland we are blessed with and it offers opportunity for us to connect with friends and family as we bike, skate, run or walk the trails.
In 1994, twenty six miles were designated along Highway 56 as one of Minnesota's first scenic byways and was named the Shoot Star Wildflower and Historic Route. This achievement opened the door for the current twenty some miles of paved trail system now connecting Lake Louise State Park near LeRoy to the Rose Peddler in Rose Creek. Though the trail currently ends in Rose Creek, the dream and vision does not!
Our zip codes have historically been a system for our mail to reach us but who knew it could directly impact our health?
“Our zip code is more powerful than our genetic code when it comes to our health. Indeed, the conditions we face day in, day out, where we live, learn, work and play; have a greater impact on our health and life expectancy than our medical conditions and the health care we receive.” RWJ Foundation.
