Community Connections – Crookston’s service clubs are second to none


    There’s nothing greater than a great service club and Crookston is fortunate to have many that are very visible in the community. They do great things for people in need, great things for the environment and seem to spread positivity wherever they go.

    These clubs are always volunteering for things like Home Delivered Meals (Meals on Wheels), at community clean-ups and wherever needed or asked.

    First, the Crookston Rotary Club, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2022, has given back and had many successes in the last 10 years. They’ve applied for and received grants for the Peace Pole Gardens at the Downtown Square and University of Minnesota Crookston, Rotary benches at the Crookston Splash Park and throughout the community, Crookston Youth Foundation’s “The Cove” youth center, and soon-to-be all abilities playground equipment at Carman Park. They’ve installed quite possibly the first public drinking fountain in downtown Crookston at their adopted green space at the Main Street Courtyard which also houses Rotary benches, flower pots and a new bicycle repair station donated and installed by the Polk County Public Health, Downtown Crookston Development Partnership, Bike Crookston and City of Crookston.
