Nice coverage of farmers’ markets

Thanks for a great article about the ever-growing number of farmers’ markets in the metro area. We certainly appreciate the coverage and are proud to produce our weekly event as a signature for the district.

When district visitors are asked about Historic Valley Junction and our many events, our farmers’ market is the top response by an overwhelming number.

Again, thanks for your coverage and visit us anytime!

Warm regards,

Jim Miller, CMSM Executive Director

Historic Valley Junction Foundation


Thank you from 5K organizers

Thank you for the amazing Locker Room article regarding the Flower Power 5K (“Flower Power 5K Returns to Botanical Center,” June 9). This gives our event tremendous exposure, which, in turn, will help expand public awareness and support for the Des Moines Botanical Center and its educational/community outreach programs. Thank you SO MUCH! Incredible article, wonderfully written, tons of info and timed perfectly. We are profoundly grateful.

Melinda Ellwanger, Race Director

Des Moines Botanical Center
