Tatanka Bluffs Held Annual Shareholder Event

Tatanka Bluffs Held Annual Shareholder Event

April 20th, 2012

Tatanka Bluffs held their annual “shareholder” event on March 16, 2012 in Olivia, MN.

Around 40 people were in attendance, which was a great turnout.  The organization’s vision is to build economic viability along the MN River and throughout Redwood and Renville Counties.  The branding “Tatanka Bluffs Corridor” will enable businesses to build on this vision.

It was clearly expressed by both Loran Kaardal and Julie Rath; that one of our main goals for Tatanka Bluffs Corridor is to develop our area for tourism.  Did you know that Tourism brings in $11.3 Billion dollars to Minnesota yearly?  Here in the Minnesota River Valley we simply want a piece of that pie!

Following is the list of speakers that presented that day and also available clips of information.

1.  Dennis Frederickson;  DNR Regional Director had fun with props!

2.  Cathi Fouchi;  DNR Regional Planner

3.  Alice Hanley;  Blueway Trails Corridor
