New Growmobile makes its debut


WILLMAR — United Way of West Central Minnesota unveiled its new Growmobile on Wednesday.

The small school bus will be used to deliver pre-school services to children in Kandiyohi County.

In its first morning on the road, the bus made a visit to the United Way’s Board of Directors meeting. The next stop was Jefferson Learning Center for a seal of approval from pre-school classes there. The last stop was the Jennie-O Turkey Store corporate offices in Willmar.
