KoMets Football Day Proclamed

 During the November 22 City Council meeting I presented the Kasson Mantorville KoMets with a proclamation declaring November 26 (Day of the State Championship game) as "KoMets Football Day". The coaches brought the entire team over to our chamber after practice. I wanted to share a picture that was taken last night as well as the proclamation which was presented to the team.

Mantorville in the News

 While the rain on Saturday placed a hamper on Rochester-fest, Mantorville soldiered on. The miniature horse drawn carriage did call it quits a few hours early but the rest of the events continued on in true Mantorville fashion. Two of the local news stations came out and covered our event. Both stations had very nice articles that aired this weekend and are available on-line for those that didn't get a chance to see them. I have placed link to both articles below. I hope you enjoy them:
