It has been a busy summer for the men and women who serve the West Metro as first responders, and their neighbors at The Waters of Plymouth senior living community appreciate everything they do. The community hosted its annual drive-thru barbeque for first responders on August 31st, and several Plymouth police officers and firefighters turned out for the event.
In addition to enjoying the hotdogs, hamburgers, fruit and cookies served by staff, each first responder who came received a hand-written thank you note from the residents. They were handed out by one of the community’s most famous residents. Walter McNeil, also known as Wally the Beer Man, who sold beer at Minnesota Twins games for nearly three decades before retiring in 2010.
Both CCX Media and KSTP Television covered the event. So did the MN Sun Sailor, which will be publishing a story in next week's edition.
The Waters Senior Living’s mission is to create a sense of community where everyone thrives, and they sure were having a good time at The Waters of Plymouth the afternoon of August 16. As part of Team Member Appreciation Week, staff decided it would be fun to put the community’s managers in a dunk tank.
Residents and staffers took turns trying to get the managers wet. Not only were there lots of laughs, the event served as a fundraiser for #clearthelist, an effort to help make sure teachers get everything they need for the classroom before the beginning of the new school year, and KSTP television covered the event.
The high school football season hasn’t officially gotten underway yet, but the Eden Prairie Eagles had their first big faceoff of the season on August 19. After a two year hiatus due to Covid, they returned to The Waters of Eden Prairie senior living community for their annual face-off.
Usually, the kids compete in a touch football game against the senior living communities staff, but because the backyard was muddy due to a recent rainstorm, they did Wii bowling, and a hotdog eating and pushups competition instead.
The event got plenty of attention from the local media. KARE, WCCO, FOX 9 and the MN Sun Current all covered the event, which is one of the residents’ favorite activities of the year. The high school athletes love it too! This was their 12th annual’ matchup.
After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Dog Days Westonka returned to Mound, Minnesota on August 13. Activities were held in two locations: Surfside Park and Beach and the Mound Harbor District..
The day of fun began with the Blessing of the Animals performed by Pastor Jim Beard from Bethel Methodist Church of Mound. That was followed by a pet costume parade, musical sit and the cutest puppy contest, plus doggie paddle boarding demonstrations, which is a new attraction for the festival.
Meantime over at the Mound Harbor District, Splash for Cash, which is one of the festival’s most popular events, made its return.
In addition to all the fun activities, there were also be food trucks and vendors on site. Music was provided by The Abiders, a Twin Cities-based band that plays the blues, country and folk songs.
RMA Publicity handled publicity for the event, and we're happy to share that all four Minneapolis affiliates provided coverage. The day of the event, KARE 11's Saturday Morning show went live from the event three times, and FOX 9 News went live in its morning show too. Later in the day, WCCO TV and KSTP TV photographers covered the event.
Preview stories were also done in the days before the event. The F0X 9 Morning News was live from Mound on Wed., Aug. 10. The morning shows on WCCO TV and KSTC TV previewed the event on Fri., Aug. 12. A story also aired on LMCC, the community cable news channel in Mound, and the Laker-Pioneer newspaper published three stories: Return of Dog Days A Howling Success, Dog Days Returns to Mound This Summer, Dog Days Slates Return to Surfside Park for August. In all, 12 media placements were secured.
Dog Days Westonka is put on by Westonka Community and Commerce (WCC), a local nonprofit organization, and is run by all volunteers. All proceeds go towards covering the costs of the event and keeping it going, as well as pet projects and programs serving the community.
