Lake Minnetonka Sailing School, with support from the Minnetonka Yacht Club, will host the U.S. Optimist Dinghy Association (USODA) Midwest Championship Regatta on Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 5 – 6, on Lake Minnetonka. This event is a youth regatta, where children under the age of 15 will be racing in their own Optimist Dinghy (“Opti”) against other youth sailors from around the Midwest.
The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) and partnering agencies are challenging all lake users to be proactive, work together, and leave behind zero waste when recreating on the great resource that is Lake Minnetonka. Whether a person visits the lake once or multiple times, its preservation is vital. In preparing for the Zero Waste challenge, please consider the following:
Having poor posture is much more than a cosmetic issue. Just as termites eat away at the structure of a house, poor posture eats away at your health. The process begins slowly, but ramps up exponentially over time. Unhealthy alignments may at first seem mild: slight rounding of the shoulders, slight head tilt to one side, a higher shoulder on one side — but they can lead to deteriorating health effects.
Families, staff and community members gathered at St. David’s Center in Minnetonka for a Community Playground Build and family celebration Saturday, Aug. 29, to construct equipment for the school’s new playground, the region’s first inclusive preschool space with access to a state-certified school forest, which will serve students and will be open to the community on weekends and after 6 p.m. weekdays.
