News from Representative Wills 05-22-2014

Dear Friends,

I hope you've been enjoying the beautiful weather we've had this week. With Memorial Day weekend coming up, I hope you'll have a chance to get outside and enjoy time with family and loved ones. Be sure to take time to remember our fallen heroes this Memorial Day Monday. Memorial Day weekend is more than a three day weekend and extra day off from work—it's a time to remember the courageous men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice defending the freedoms that make our country great. If you have time on Monday, consider attending one of our local Memorial Day ceremonies in Rosemount and Apple Valley. I'm planning on attending both, and hope to see you there as well!

Here are the details:

The Rosemount VFW and Rosemount American Legion will host their Memorial Day ceremony at the Rosemount Veterans Memorial, located in Central Park at 2893 145th Street W in Rosemount. There will be a musical performance by the 34th Infantry Division Red Bull Brass Quintet at 8:45AM, and the main program will begin at 9:15AM. A free lunch will be served at the Rosemount American Legion following the program. In case of rain, the ceremony will be held inside the Rosemount American Legion. More information can be found here.

Apple Valley
The American Legion Post 1776 will host a Memorial Day ceremony at Veterans Park located at 14521 Granada Drive in Apple Valley starting at 11AM. In case of rain, the ceremony will be held at the Apple Valley American Legion. More information can be found here.

Here are some other updates from the past two weeks:

Rosemount Elementary Students Visit the Capitol
During the last week of session, Senator Greg Clausen and I got the chance to visit with students from Rosemount Elementary School during their trip to the Capitol. The students had excellent questions about our work at the legislature and enjoyed a tour of the State Capitol.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
On Tuesday, May 20th, I joined members from the Apple Valley Chamber of Commerce for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at ChangeWorks Hypnosis Center in Apple Valley. ChangeWorks Hypnosis Center has been in the community for years, but just recently joined the Apple Valley Chamber and moved to a new location. It's always encouraging to see businesses achieving success and benefitting residents in our community.
