For those who may have missed it, we’re releasing an overview of last year’s Rural Minnesota Journal. The 12-pager contains summaries of all the excellent articles in this online publication discussing how who lives in Minnesota is transitioning from one generation to the next. Articles cover subjects such as rural leadership, how the volunteer pool is changing, where retiring Baby Boomers will live, and preparing the workforce for future jobs. Click here to view the overview at our web site, ruralmn.org.
