If you are new to the Rochester, Minnesota area, we recently heard about this local business called RochesterGreeters.com (http://rochestergreeters.com/). It's a business led by Kathy Johnson where her greeters meet with you to discuss your interests and lifestyle and what the Rochester community has to offer you. It's a free service and you can meet at your home, at a coffee shop, at a park – wherever you would like! The greeters also bring a packet filled with coupons for you to experience Rochester while saving some money. We have heard great things about the greeters and it's a wonderful way to get introduced to the community.
Let us know your experience with the greeters and if you have any tips for others that you may have learned from them by replying to this discussion! Welcome to Rochester!
