Results of the ‘DONATE TO VOTE’ contest for 2019 have the city of Danube as the winner for the 2020 Featured Town in the Main Museum at the Renville County Historical Society in Morton, Minnesota.
For the past four years, we have been holding a ‘Donate to Vote’ contest in the Building #4 on the Renville County Fair Grounds in Bird Island, Minnesota. In 2016, Olivia was the winner. In 2017, Bird Island was the winner and was featured at the Fair Grounds for the 2019 Renville County Fair. In 2018, Fairfax was the winner and is the current town featured in the Main Museum and will be featured at the 2020 Renville County Fair. 2019 there were five towns in the running: Danube ($35.12), Buffalo Lake ($4.00), Hector ($22.57), Renville ($12.36) & Sacred Heart ($5.10). Included in the Danube donation bucket were two tokens for Ricky J’s Car Wash which are not factored into the dollar donation total. Congratulations to the City of Danube for winning to be the 2020 Featured Town in the Main Museum.
