Service above Self award info

The Betsy-Tacy Society has just received  the Greater Mankato Rotary’s “Service Above Self” award. Our co-founder Lona Falenczykowski accepted the award on behalf of the BTS; she was introduced by her daughter, Emily Falenczykowski-Scott.  The ceremony was livestreamed from our Facebook page, and you can watch a replay of it here, starting at about the 10:40 minute mark.

Take a Virtual Tour of Deep Valley via Google Maps!

If you can’t get to Mankato to visit Betsy-Tacy sites in person, you can still take a look at many places you’ve always longed to see. Check out our new Deep Valley Tour Map here. Click on the BTS logo next to the items in the menu on the left side of the map (you may have to expand the list to see all of them). If you don’t see a photo immediately, click the link that says View in Google Maps. Have fun exploring!
