Twenty years of Adopt-a-highway 

About a dozen DFLers helped clean two miles of Highway 71 this spring. Kandiyohi County DFL adopted this stretch of highway in 1999 and has maintained it twice each year for 20 years. The next clean-up will be scheduled this fall. Contact kandiyohi.dfl@gmail.com for more information.
