This Halloween marks Farmington's third year of participation in a We Act campaign called We Scare Hunger. Students from Farmington schools will trick-or-treat for items to benefit the Farmington Food Shelf. The We Day Initiative in Farmington began last year by raising money to build a school in Kenya. As a district, Farmington was able to raise $10,000 in 43 days. So far this year, the Farmington High School has raised $1,100 to send 22 students in primary school in Africa for a year.
With the election fast approaching and many voters already headed to the polls through Minnesota's robust early voting system, the time has come for a look at some of the candidates seeking public office in our area. In the month before the election, we've published candidate surveys for local and state races that affect the residents of Farmington and Rosemount. This week, we're publishing responses from candidates for the Minnesota Senate in District 58, and the Minnesota House in District 58B.
Senate District 58 candidate Matt Little responds to questions about why he should be elected, and what the biggest issues are for residents of the district and state of Minnesota.
House District 58B candidate Marla Vagts responds to questions about why he should be elected, and what the biggest issues are for residents of the district and state of Minnesota.
Senate District 58 candidate Tim Pitcher responds to questions about why he should be elected, and what the biggest issues are for residents of the district and state of Minnesota.
House District 58B candidate Pat Garofalo responds to questions about why he should be elected, and what the biggest issues are for residents of the district and state of Minnesota.
There's no shortage of things for the little (and grown-up) ghouls and goblins to do for Halloween. We've collected as many events as we could find and put them all here for your convenience. You may also want to collect something as well — nonperishable food items — as many of these events require one to get in the door.

The Dakota County Historical Society is seeking information from county residents for an upcoming exhibit on life during World War I opening in 2017.

Beginning in 2017, the physicians who provide orthopedic care at Northfield Hospital's FamilyHealth Medical Clinic in Farmington will do so under a new name.
