Silver Lake Splash
1pm - 5pm

Silver Lake Splash logo

A Community Fundraising Event!

In 2010 the city of North St. Paul almost closed Silver Lake Beach due to budgeting constraints. Residents banned together and petitioned the City to keep the beach open and staffed with lifeguards. North St. Paul has a small town feel, yet is located inside the 494/694 loop of the Twin Cities. What makes the small town feel is the historic downtown area, the parks and recreation and the beach. The beach brings swells of children in the summertime for laughter and fun in a safe environment. Additionally, the beach adds value to the properties near and around the lake and draws young families to purchase homes in NSP.

An annual fundraiser is held to supplement budgeted city dollars in order to keep the beach staffed with lifeguards, maintain safety and keep the grounds well taken care of, as well as, allow for enhancements to the beach area. This fundraiser, The Silver Lake Splash, takes place each July and the proceeds will be donated to the Beach Fund. The event is held at the Silver Lake Beach. Click here for map and directions.

We will have live music, food, boat parade, silent auction galore! Old fashioned fun for the whole family.

Tribute to the Troops
September 5-7, 2014

Tribute To The Troops of Minnesota became the first official chapter of Tribute To The Troops® in April 2011. To be sure, however, Tribute To The Troops got its start in Minnesota in 2004, inspired by a video featuring the song "Home" by country singer Rockie Lynne. The video features pictures of our fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms early on in the War on Terror. With inspiration from the video, a small group of concerned Minnesotans from the Twin Cities joined together to conduct the 1st Annual Tribute To The Troops Ride in the fall of 2004. Over 60 people on 45 motorcycles visited the families of three of Minnesota’s fallen heroes, conveying their thanks to each family and letting them know that their loss, and the sacrifice made by their loved one, will never be forgotten. The day was filled with hugs, tears, and warm smiles as each person attending was able to personally acknowledge each family’s loss. That fall day in 2004 marked the beginning of Tribute To The Troops®. The dedication and support of many volunteers and participants has enabled this organization to grow and to continue its important mission.

Since 2004, Minnesota members of Tribute To The Troops have conducted an annual ride weekend each September, visiting dozens of families over the years that have lost a loved one in the War on Terror. Each year, the number of participants has grown, helping to increase awareness among others of the ultimate sacrifice made by these brave American Heroes and their families.

The September weekend includes a ride to Camp Ripley to honor active duty personnel stationed there and a special concert program to honor our heroes and their families, providing an opportunity for ride participants and our heroes’ families to join together to pay tribute to our fallen heroes, share stories and memories, and to hear the special music of Rockie Lynne. The program includes a reading of the names of each one of Minnesota’s fallen heroes followed by a moment of silent reflection. It is an evening that families and participants remember for many years to come.

For more information including sponsorship, events, donations and more, visit our website at www.tributetothetroops.org

Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series (UMSS)

The UMSS Wing Sprint Car Series is a value-based racing organization for the participants, race tracks, and race fans. Based in the Twin Cities, the popularity of UMSS is gaining momentum by establishing reasonable rules for the participants, an economical purse structure for the race tracks, and an affordable race ticket and fan-friendly program for the race fans.

The series has between 23 and 25 races scheduled in 2014 all over Minnesota, western Wisconsin and northern Iowa. Our cars are the fastest that race on dirt and most people will recognize them because of the big wing on top. This will be our 6th year with the wing sprint car. We also have a “non wing” or traditional sprint car series that will start its 4th year in 2014 and a micro sprint car series for ages 11 and up that will start its 3rd year in 2014.

We will be bringing 2 or 3 wing sprint cars for the show. For more infomarion, go to www.umsprints.com
