October 2019 

Dear neighbors,
Thank you to the enthusiastic DFLers who donated their time and energy to our Kandiyohi County DFL activities: the Bean Feed, roadside cleanup, summer parades, and the county fair. We have so much more to do, and we can use your help. There are many ways to get involved: attend our monthly meetings, join the coffee and conversation get-togethers, and help with our fall roadside cleanup. Watch this newsletter space, our Facebook page, our new website, or your email for details. See you soon!

Chair, Kandiyohi County DFL
