COVID-19 testing continues

WELCOME — Three reminders for Welcome residents: First, remember to get your fire department fundraiser raffle ticket from any Welcome firefighter. Second, remember to file affidavits of candidacy for township elections by Jan. 12, with the township clerk. And lastly, remember to write ‘2021’ for the year now.

COVID-19 testing continues at the National Guard Armory in Fairmont from noon to 6 p.m. on Jan. 13-16, Jan. 20-22 and Jan. 27-30. This is free and open to anyone, symptoms or no symptoms. Register online at primarybio.com/r/Fairmont, call the MN Department of Health at 1-855-612-0677 or go online at www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/testsites. Registering helps to keep wait times short and give people plenty of space for social distancing.

Mayor Newville and councilman Elroy Glidden were sworn in at the Welcome City Council meeting on Jan. 5. Congratulations on being elected and best wishes as you are helping the community.

The first day of spring is about 70 days away. And, Happy Epiphany this last week.
