Construction Begins

Superbowl Legacy Fund Award Presentation is Tuesday, Oct 3rd at Tink Larson Field

Through its Legacy Fund, the MN Superbowl Host Committee is investing in programming in communities across the state in order to leave a lasting legacy for Minnesota’s future long after the big game.   And we are honored that the MNSBHC will formally be presenting a Legacy Grant at a special event on Tuesday October 3, 2017, 11:00 am at Tink Larson Field.   In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Central School Building Gym.  This grant was a big boost to our TLF Campaign, and was supported by a matching grant from the Pohlad Family Foundation.

We are also pleased that because of this award, the Waseca School district nutrition program also became eligible for a grant which will be announced at the same time.    Waseca youth will participate in a kids clinic sponsored by the MN Twins during this event which will run from 11am to noon.
