Meet Your Best of Lake Minnetonka 2018 Winners! 

Published by: Lake Minnetonka Magazine

One of the best things about being part of a community is knowing that your neighbors are there for you: to shore you up in hard times, to celebrate with you and to work together to improve the neighborhood for everyone. Fred Rogers, the public television pioneer and child development expert, inspired us to think more about what being part of a neighborhood means, the theme for this year’s special Best of Lake Minnetonka edition of the magazine. “We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility,” Rogers said. “It’s easy to say, ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.”

So what’s your neighborhood? Is it the literal neighborhood where your house is located? Is it the families at your child’s middle school? The coffee shop you walk to every Saturday morning? Maybe it’s your “neighborhood” of coworkers, or your volleyball league, or some other group or place where you belong.

In this issue, we’re celebrating the Lake Minnetonka “neighborhood”­—the businesses you voted for, all around those pure waters, that represent the best of the best. Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Best of Lake Minnetonka awards! We’re happy to be your neighbors.
