[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] July 2019


[#mnrising Dispatch] July 2019

Our transition to a new month also means preparing for several new Minnesota state laws that go into effect on August 1. Learn more about the new laws passed during the 2019 state legislative session and visit the Department of Public Safety's website to equip yourself regarding the hands-free driving law. In like manner, it's never too early to start getting your taste buds ready for the Great Minnesota Get Together's new vendors and food offerings!

And knowing that the transition to autumn follows shortly after these key dates, take inspiration that summer is still presently in full swing. "In the space between chaos and shape there was another chance." -Jeanette Winterson. Stay cool, friends!
