A Message from Mayor Paul TenHaken
I hope you are aware of COVID-19 and the impact it is having on the nation as well as the Sioux Falls community. Every one of us has a role to play in slowing the spread of COVID-19, which is our top priority.
Summer of New Opportunities
From fall football to spring soccer and winter skiing to summer baseball and softball, the City of Sioux Falls offers a wide-range of activities for all seasons of the year. That’s part of what makes this city so special. The COVID-19 pandemic has altered life in 2020 and our summer will be different this year. But just because it’s different doesn’t mean COVID will cancel our ability to have fun.
Sioux52 Mentoring Initiative
The Sioux 52 Mentoring Initiative seeks to unify Sioux Falls area non-profit, business, and faith communities in order to create a universal, significant and long-lasting commitment to mentoring in our city. The goal is to recruit 5,200 mentors by 2026 and for the City of Sioux Falls to become known as the City of Mentoring.
A Look Back at 2019
It is said that all good things must come to an end. While 2019 may be ending, I am confident the Sioux Falls’ momentum will continue into 2020. Looking back on the past 12 months, there is much the community accomplished.
