Boxelder Bug Days is just around the corner with the three-day annual event being held Sept. 7-9 in Minneota. One of the more popular activities held during Boxelder Bug Days is the Smokin’ BBQ Cook-off with the public able to sample and vote for their favorite recipe.
Expressing a desire to turn the page and start a new chapter in their life, Minneota City Clerk Alexis Ramirez and her family will be moving to Colorado at the end of the month. "I will miss the supportive community and my co-workers," said Ramirez.
There's the serious side of the annual Minneota Memorial Run. Besides all those motorcycles, the fun and the beer and the ride around the countryside itself — and, oh, let's not forget the "burn" of worn tires, there's the reason for the ride.
Porter is a small town, not the small town they talk about in the movies of about 20,000 people.
This is a SMALL town —maybe 200 people.
But when the Porter Harvest Fest comes around, the meaning of "small town" comes to life.
It really isn't as much a "Fest" or a "Festival" as it is a "HOMECOMING."
