Community Night at Valley Natural Foods - February 10th

Every family is welcome to come to the next Community Night on February 10th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Valley Natural Foods, located at 13750, County Road 11, Burnsville. The healthy theme for the evening celebrates teaching kids the importance of getting one hour of exercise daily. During the month of February and March, the co-op encourages parents to turn the television and computer off and to give kids wide open spaces to play and have fun. It is all about building an active home. Kids can also pick up a monthly chart at Community Night to track their progress toward getting one hour of exercise daily. Those that turn those charts in during our March 10th Community Night will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a $300 gift card to buy a new bike. [more]
