Faribault County SHIP Kick-Off!

We are excited for the Faribault County SHIP Kick-Off on June 1, 2010 at Blue Earth Area High School. If you RSVP'd for dinner, you won't be dissapointed! The menu includes a healthy meal of pork loin, provided by Faribault County Pork Producers, wild rice salad, green beans donated by Seneca and angel food cake with strawberriers. Christine Purvis and the food service staff will be helping to prepare the food. The presentations will begin starting at 6:30. If you did not RSVP for dinner you are still welcome to attend the presentations :)

Chera Sevcik, SHIP Coordinator for Faribault, Martin & Watonwan Counties will provide a presentation on SHIP and what it means for the communities in Faribault County. Chris Chalmers, Community Education Director for Albert Lea Schools and co-chair of the Albert Lea Blue Zones Project will talk about Blue Zones and the impact on Albert Lea as a result of implementing policy and environmental changes to encourage healthy, longer lifestyles. Our keynote speaker is Dan Burden, national expert on walkable/bikeable communities. In addition to the speakers, you will also learn more about the SHIP projects impacting Faribault County!

See you there!
