I hope you had an enjoyable Independence Day and were able to enjoy the fireworks and festivities out in the community. It is always good for us to take time to remember the sacrifices that were made for us to be free from British rule over 200 years ago, and the ongoing sacrifices of the brave men and women who continue to defend our freedom at home and abroad.
It's been an exciting week for District 57B. This week, I joined fellow Apple Valley Chamber members at a ribbon-cutting on Tuesday, July 8th, for OrangeTheory Fitness in Apple Valley. This new fitness facility is located on Pilot Knob Road in Apple Valley, and is a great new addition to the community. Members of the military can receive discounted membership & packages with a valid ID. For more information you can visit http://www.orangetheoryfitness.com/apple-valley.
Later on Tuesday, I attended the ground-breaking for the Hanifl Family Wild Woods play area at the Minnesota Zoo. This area will be a place for the youngest visitors to the Zoo to play while learning about animals and seeing the various exhibits.
This new play area is privately funded by individual donors and the General Mills Foundation, showing the community support for the Minnesota Zoo. To learn more, visit: http://mnzoo.org/press-room/press-releases/minnesota-zoo-breaks-ground-hanifl-family-wild-woods-new-nature-based-play-area/
