May 13, 2010

Rotary Club President Rick Estenson, Northfield Mayor Mary Rossing, JBBT Chair Jack Hoschouer and Northfield City Administration Joel Walinski.

Jesse James Bike Tour Chairman Jack Hoschouer presented a check of $18,000 to Mayor Mary Rossing and City Administrator Joel Walinski to develop bike trails on the east side of the Cannon River from Northfield to Dundas. This is the first installment of the Rotary Club of Northfield’s $100,000 four-year commitment to the project.

The Jesse James Bike Tour is held annually on the Saturday after Labor Day, during Northfield’s Defeat of Jesse James Days celebration. A majority of the net proceeds from the club sponsored tour are dedicated to the Mill Towns Trail. To date, over $100,000 has been donated to the project.
