Root River Trail Towns received 501(c)(3) non-profit status on April 22


Mon, Jun 22nd, 2015
Posted in All Features

A Root River Trail Towns organization was first organized in the early 1990’s as a means for the towns on the MN DNR Root River Trail to collaboratively promote use of the Root River Trail and the local communities. Early activities included the annual Sykkle Tur on the anniversary of the trail’s grand opening, a non-biker ride in wagons pulled by tractors especially for seniors, B&B house tours, and more.

About five years ago the nine towns on the Root River again organized to launch “Taste of the Trail” activities in each town. This event has grown each year and has been promoting the Root River Trail Towns’ many and varied assets on three Saturdays in September.

The 501c3 status makes Root River Trail Towns eligible for grants and tax-deductible gifts to continue promotion of this area to benefit all of its businesses, residents and visitors. Taste of the Trail continues to be the RRTT’s capstone event and highlights a local non-profit to seek donations. Childhood Cancer is the focus of Taste of the Trail in 2015.

RRTT’s promotion now includes a comprehensive website, www.rootrivertrail.org, that promotes events, businesses, and the exceptional quality of life assets in Southeastern Minnesota. The DNR Root River Trail has a reputation of being a premier trail within the MN DNR Trails system.

Plan to join the Root River Trail Towns in 2015 for the 1st Annual 60-Mile Garage Sale on June 26-27 and Taste of the Trail on Saturdays, September 12, 19, and 26.
