River Night, Lake Night, Great Night!


Join us on September 14, 2011 at the BayView Event Center in Excelsior, MN as we honor individuals and groups who have achieved great things for their lake or river. Our 10th annual celebration is being co-hosted with the Lake Minnetonka Association and features an an address by Daniel Molloy, PhD, patent inventor of the control method now being commercialized under the product name Zequanox™ - to  kick off our awards ceremony to honor citizens who best illustrate the power and effectiveness of grassroots action in our state.  

Afterward, we have arranged for a sunset cruise on beautiful Lake Minnetonka.
