Happy Holidays!

Dear Neighbors,

From the Peppin family to yours, I’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas, a wonderful New Year and a joyous holiday season!

I look forward to spending Christmas with my family and taking part in our cherished family traditions.  I hope your holidays are also filled with cheer, fond memories and quality time spent with loved ones. If you’re traveling over the holidays, please have a safe journey—we know how unpredictable Minnesota weather can be at this time of year!

Furthermore, should you need assistance over the holidays, my office is available to help. My direct line is 651-296-7806. My email address is rep.joyce.peppin@house.mn and my mailing address is Room 459 State Office Building, 100 Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard, St. Paul, MN 55155. I am here to serve you!

Merry Christmas!

Peppin’s MinnTriv

Thank you to everyone who participated in the last Peppin’s MinnTriv Question. The question was: International Falls earned this nickname for regularly being one of the coldest places in the United States. The answer is the Nation’s Ice Box.

Congratulations to Carrie Geske from Maple Grove who is last week's winner.

Here is the last Peppin’s MinnTriv question of the year:

Every year the DNR chooses a Christmas tree from one of Minnesota’s 59 State Forests to display at the governor’s mansion. This year, the 30-foot tree on display comes from which forest near Willow River in Pine County?

The SECOND correct response will be featured in the first e-mail update of 2018!

Happy Holidays and best wishes for a healthy New Year,
