Santa Sighting Possible at Popular Golf Course in Rochester
I interrupt this extremely hot, summer day in July to let you know that a very popular celebrity is making a visit to Rochester, Minnesota on Monday, July 25th! Normally, we see this popular dude when the temps are below freezing in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin so it will be fun to wave at the big guy while our fingers aren't frozen.
You guessed it, Christmas is showing up in a big way in July!
It's Christmas in July at a Popular Golf Course in Rochester, Minnesota
Find your ugly sweater and get ready for some Christmas fun in July at a popular golf course in Rochester. The first annual Golf for Good tournament is happening at Willow Creek Golf Course and everyone is invited! Golfer registrations are still be accepted and the really cool thing is that all of the proceeds from this event will be helping individuals and families who are struggling. (And based on my conversations with lots of non-profits in our area recently, we have LOTS and LOTS of people who really need some extra help right now.)
