Hi! If you are new to our community let me be one of the first to welcome you. I am honest and truly glad you are here! You will add so much to our community. I am excited to let our kids play together and chat with you while we push our kids on the swings at one of our 44 parks, walk the blazing star trail, or one of the other amazing outdoor activities we have in Albert Lea. I am truly excited to get to know you!
I would like to give you some helpful tips to our community. First, I would like to introduce you to Glen Parsons, our Community Concierge. He is a great guy who can connect you to realtors, city officials, school officials, or whoever you need to connect to. You can find all of the info at experiencealbertlea.com.
MOPS, Mothers of Preschoolers, is a fantastic group of women. They offer moral support, a listening ear, and a chance to make great friends. It’s a great chance to learn who the great babysitters are in town and they offer fun child care while moms get to have their sanity tanks filled. You can find their Facebook page here.
Community education offers classes for everyone. Classes vary from preschool activity classes to Adult classes. Parent and child create crafts, listen to stories, and more. Adults can take cooking classes, aerobics classes, learn to paint, and more! A great way to make friends, have fun, and learn more ways for you to get involved.
Wedgewood Cove and Green Lea Golf Course offer great golf courses and fun club houses. Both offer Junior Golf Programs and Golf tournaments for adults.
In the summer you can join a softball league, volleyball league, and Pickleball is popular here. I have yet to try Pickle Ball, but I’m hoping this is the year!
Really the moral of the story to our community is, there is something for everyone. We live in a community were if you don’t have family, someone will soon adopt you. You’ll be trimming the tree, caroling, Easter egg hunting, grilling, golfing, walking, canoeing, enjoying the fire works, meeting folks for Wind Down Wednesday, and cruising on the Pelican breeze in no time!
Are you knew to our area? I would love to help plug you in with people who float your boat and/or can answer your questions.
Again, welcome to our community, I am so glad you’re here!
What a great post about all that Albert Lea has to offer. Who wouldn’t love living there with all that is going on?
Thank you, Beth Ann! Albert Lea is truly a wonderful place to raise a family!
