City of Winona
Project FINE executive director
On behalf of the city of Winona and Project FINE, we would like to thank the community for their involvement in Welcoming Week 2017. This annual celebration recognizes the contributions of immigrants and refugees and the role communities play to foster greater welcome for everyone. We would like to thank all those who attended the Welcoming Week celebration on September 21 at Lake Park for sharing their messages of welcome and willingness to build a welcoming community.
Newcomers have played a vital role in our city’s journey, making contributions that have helped us become the wonderful community we are today. We hope that all residents will join us in our efforts to continue to be welcoming to all who call Winona home.
