Minnesota State Parks and Trails Host Open House

Answer the call of the wild on Saturday, June 9, to celebrate National Get Outdoors Day!

Minnesota’s 76 state parks and recreation areas are all offering free admission this day, and many of them have planned special activities to introduce you to the fun of geocaching, kayaking, camping, and other family-friendly activities.

The Friends of Lake Shetek State Park will be hosting their Annual Open House Pork Burger Feed Fundraiser on Saturday, June 9 from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm at the Lake Shetek State Park picnic shelter.  For $6 per person, the menu will include either a pork burger or hot dog, beans, chips, cookie and a beverage.  The proceeds from the fundraiser are used to support park improvement projects and programs.  Some examples of park improvements funded by the Friends include Koch Cabin restoration work, interpretive programming, tree plantings and the solar-powered boat landing light.

Come out to support the park, grab a bite to eat and enjoy a day outdoors!

FREE Classes for People New to Medicare

Participants will learn the basics of Medicare and their coverage options in Minnesota during the first class.

Classes are held in Slayton on the second and third Monday of the month. Call the Senior LinkAge Line® at 1-800-333-2433 to register.
