There's a new brand coming, and on October 1st they're throwing a party to celebrate! Who, you ask? Well, it's none other than Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Minnesota. Agencies nationwide will be celebrating the new logo, new colors, and a push for urgency to get more people involved in BBBS.

Everyone is invited to the Brand Bash, it will be held in Owatonna's Central Park and attendance is free. They will have food trucks, inflatables, and live music from local bands, including the Bad Tangerines and DeKam and Johnson.

The party starts at 4 pm and will continue until 8. The event is on Facebook, here. You can find out more about BBBS of Southern MN at their website, or by calling 507-451-5922.

On a personal note, my older daughter had a big sister through BBBS, several years ago, and we are still friends with her Big, and now her Big's family. What a great organization, and it fosters lifelong friendships and connections.
