Hello from St. Paul,

With Veterans Day just one week away, I wanted to let you know about a celebration that will be taking place in Hastings.

The Hastings School District will be holding a Veterans Day event on Monday, November 11, 2013, 10:00 a.m., at the Tilden Community Center, 310 River Street, in Hastings. This year, organizers are asking members of the community to write a letter to a veteran to show their appreciation for their service to our country.

All letters will be displayed at the Veteran’s Day Celebration on Monday, November 11, 2013. Veterans in attendance will be encouraged to take a letter home with them. Remaining letters will be delivered to the Hastings Veterans Home.

If you’d like to write a letter of appreciation, the district outlines a number of ways you can participate:

1. Go to the Hastings Community Education website, On the home page, you will find a link to a Survey Monkey where you can write your letter.

2. Send your letter of appreciation via email to Hastings Community Education Coordinator Gaby Postiglione at Or fax it to Gaby at 651-480-7680.

3. U.S. Mail works, too! Write your letter and send it to Veteran’s Day Appreciation Letters, Hastings Community Education, 310 River Street, Hastings, MN 55033.

Letters should be submitted no later than Thursday, November 7.

In case you missed it, just after 9:00 yesterday morning northbound traffic was routed onto the northbound side of the new Hastings bridge. Even better news: the entire bridge is expected to be fully operational by November 17! There are tentative plans for an event in Hastings on November 22 to celebrate the bridge’s official opening, and as I receive more details I’ll be sure to pass them along.

Keep in touch,
