“As a business owner in Hermantown, and a lifetime resident of the Twin Ports, I can appreciate the concern to pass all three initiatives in Hermantown. Being a multi-sport athlete in high school made me more competitive and a team player and I carried that with me into being a successful business owner. I am also an ambassador for living a healthy lifestyle. A renovation to the park, extension of the trails, and arena expansion would make it more exciting and incentivize people of all ages to get active!! More activities in Hermantown will also help businesses grow as well! VOTE ALL THREE”

- Mathew (Bert) Berthiaume

“We live in a great place that has gotten this way by engagement focused on community improvement.  This half percent sales tax shared with the area’s population, will assure our community’s progress.  A journey that we all must continue to pursue and support.”

- Randy and Marlene Bowen

“For the last 35 years, our kids (and now our grandkids) have benefited from the generosity of this great community of Hermantown. What a wonderful opportunity to “Pass It Forward “ to our current and future Hermantown families by supporting this Community Recreation Initiative. WE’RE IN!!!”

- Rick and Debi Francisco

“Voting yes will provide the opportunity to extend and enhance the outdoor recreation options that we have in our community.  Also, supporting both the renovation of Fichtner park and the hockey rink addition will deliver a more reliable and better experience for our young athletes and busy parents.” 

- Patrick and Jodilyn Miner

“A healthy community is a vibrant community.  The 3 components of the Community Recreation Initiative would enhance the overall healthiness of Hermantown for our youth and adults of all ages.  I’ll be voting yes for all 3 components this fall, and encourage you to consider doing the same.”

- Bob Swanstrom

“This initiative is all about our children and future generations. My wife and I moved to Hermantown because of those very opportunities. Sports and recreation raises healthier children, teaches them life lessons about hard work, sportsmanship, putting others above yourself and how dedication and effort leads to desired results in life. The facility upgrades not only impact our children, but will lead to a healthier Hermantown community, compounding on the pride of living here and being a part of the contribution Hermantown students go out and give to the world. 

My grandfather, Chet Tomassoni, knew the importance of these facilities and believed so strongly, he volunteered years designing and building two hockey rinks out of almost all volunteer labor that positively impacted communities for generations. My father, Dave, recognized the value so much, he dedicated a major part of his life and career working to keep and improve the very facilities this initiative seeks to provide. If that kind of commitment, dedication and knowledge exists in our history, it should be apart of our present and our future. And the best part is, there is no risk here, we know if we invest in these things that it works. It’s worked throughout history and will work for future generations. I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this community and to watch my kids grow up here, and hopefully, have them hang a few banners in this town too.” 

- The Tomassoni Family

“A well-planned community gives residents and businesses the best chance to succeed, create economic stability, and new opportunities for its citizens for generations. The Hermantown Area Chamber of Commerce recognizes that Hermantown Community Recreation Initiative is good for business and supports this initiative as an important investment in our community.”
