Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism President Nort Johnson is scheduled to stop by KDHL for today's AM Minnesota program.  The show begins at 9:30 a.m.  In visiting with Nort New Year's Eve day we talked about reviewing happenings in 2018 and looking forward to 2019 events.

We are not sure if final lodging tax receipts for 2018 are in yet to determine if tourism was up or down for the year but in previous visits Faribault Area Chamber officials were very pleased with the turnout for many of their events during the year.  The car cruises were again very popular, there are some fun and educational events coming up this month.

  • Learn to ski Saturday, January 5 at River Bend Nature Center.  Beginners are encouraged.
  • Adult Learn to Ski Tuesday, January 8 at River Bend Nature Center.  Beginners are encouraged.
  • Monday, January 21 School's Out Adventure Day:  Let's Blow off some S.T.E.A.M.  A day camp designing and building.  Practice problem solving skills through hands-on construction and learn how animals can be ecosystem engineers.

Those are just a few of the events happening this month alone listed on the Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce website. www.members.faribaultmn.org .
