Free School Supply Event

The River Falls School District is hosting a free school supply event on Monday, Aug. 16 and Tuesday, Aug. 17 at First Congregational Church. Monday, join for a picnic meal from 5-6 p.m. School supplies and shoes will be available from 4:30-6:30 p.m. On Tuesday, supplies will be distributed from 10 a.m. until noon. 

Students must be present and accompanied by a parent or guardian to participate. 

First National Bank of River Falls has donated over 300 pairs of tennis shoes through their 2021 FNBRF 5K fundraising event. Other sponsors contributed to the supply event as well. 

Cookout Conversation with Council

Join Mayor Dan Toland and other leaders at the City of River Falls for hot dogs, ice cream, chips, pop and community conversation on Thursday, Aug. 19, 6-7:30 p.m., Wells Park, 250 Kennedy St. in District 2.

The Cookout Conversations program was launched in the summer of 2019 to provide an informal occasion for residents to hold conversations, ask questions and share ideas with Mayor Toland, Council representatives and staff leaders. Events were held in each of the City’s four aldermanic districts, though residents were and are invited to attend any or all events.

Due to COVID-19, the program was put on hold in 2020. The first cookout of 2021 was held in July and there are two others planned in districts 3 and 4: 

  • Thursday, Sept. 16, 6-7:30 p.m., Kinni Trail near Winter St. Bridge (District 3)

  • Thursday, Oct. 14, 6-7:30 p.m., Glen Park pavilion (District 4)
