Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Here is an update with the latest news from the Capitol.

  • Happy Thanksgiving!
  • Community Events

Happy Thanksgiving!

From the Peppin family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend, and that you’re able to enjoy time with family and friends, and of course, have some great food too! Please drive safely if you will be traveling.  

It is an honor to represent you at the Capitol. I am thankful to call the northwest suburbs home—a place with friendly neighbors, great schools, strong small businesses, and neighbors that build a real sense of community. It’s a fantastic place to live and raise a family, and for that and more, I am thankful.

So once again, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Have a wonderful holiday.

Peppin’s MinnTriv

Thank you to everyone who participated in the last Peppin’s MinnTriv Question. The question was:  A 55 foot tall statute of this brand icon stands in Blue Earth, MN. The answer is the Jolly Green Giant.

Congratulations to Mike Butcher from Greenfield who is last week’s winner.

Here is this week’s question:

Minnesota is home to the Super Bowl this year, but it’s been a while since the Vikings made an appearance in that game. When was the last time the Vikings played in the Super Bowl, and who was the last Viking to score a Super Bowl touchdown?  

The THIRD respondent with the correct answer won’t win a ticket to this year’s Super Bowl, but will be featured in the next e-mail update!
