Save the date for the 2020 Rotary Holiday Classic presented by Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine, which is scheduled for December 29th and 30th at the Mayo Civic Center.  We understand there is a lot of uncertainty with the upcoming high school sports season and gathering in large groups at large events.  For now, we will plan to hold the Holiday Classic as scheduled!  The event operates under the guidelines of the Minnesota State High School League, and we will look to them for guidance as the event dates get closer.
Please look for additional information in the upcoming months regarding the Rotary Holiday Classic and how you can continue to support this amazing event which benefits the youth of our community!
