It’s Almost September 24th!

September 24th is only a few days away, which means it’s almost time for Ridgewater’s 50th Anniversary celebration on the Willmar campus!  We’re very excited, not only for the opportunity to celebrate our legacy and take a look at the path to where we’re at, but for the opportunity to share with the community all the great things we do now, and where we’re headed.

The forecast for the day sounds beautiful, so if you are looking for a great way to get out in the community and enjoy it, this is the place to be!  Here’s just a sampling of what will be happening on campus:

  • Inflatable fun houses for kids
  • Kid games with prizes
  • National Guard climbing wall
  • Alumni art exhibit and reception
  • Live music by Gig Noonan
  • Food, Food, Food!
  • Great prizes – including an Apple iPad 2!
  • Campus tours
  • Classic care “cruise in” – check out some great rides!

If you happen to be an alumnus of Ridgewater, be sure to stop by your former department area.  Many departments are hosting alumni and have some refreshments and special activities planned!

Also, don’t forget about the tailgating party at 4:00 and the homecoming football game at 6:00 p.m., both at Hodapp Field in Willmar.  It’s a full day of fun and excitement! 

A special thanks to major sponsors Bremer Bank and Heritage Bank for helping us pull all of this together.  Remember, the event on the Hutchinson campus is also right around the corner on October 15!

Visit for additional details.  We’ll see you on campus Saturday!
