Help the hungry at Leprechaun Days parade
Plenty of people collect candy at Rosemount's annual Leprechaun Days parade. Now the city of Rosemount, SKB Environmental, Cub Foods of Rosemount and Lone Oak Graphics would like to get some food moving the other direction.
Those groups will hold a Parade for the Pantry food drive during this year's Grand Day parade, scheduled to start at 11 a.m. July 26. They ask anyone coming to the parade to bring along a non-perishable food item to donate to Community Action Council's food shelf in Rosemount.
Students will push shopping carts along the curb for the entire parade route to collect food items.
There will be other food collection events during Leprechaun Days, which runs from July 18-27 in Rosemount.
