New look, new features, same old philosophy

We're celebrating our 12th anniversary with a brand new look and feel. Aside from the obvious changes (bigger screen size, simplified interactive menus and animated headers), we've added some interesting new features to help you connect with the community and find the information you're looking for.

We have a wonderful new gift shop, featuring prints and maps of Lake Minnetonka during the glory days of Minnesota tourism, as well as other popular Minnesota destinations.

Those of you who remember the old message board will love the new version, capable of multiple threads and (Hallelujah!) it's spam proof!

The new Classifieds section allows people to list items for sale at rates far below local newspapers, while keeping the message board unspoiled by crass commercialism ;-)

Last, but certainly not least, our sponsors' ads are now visible all throughout the site, rotating every few seconds for maximum exposure. If you enjoy visiting this site, I hope you will remember to support those who make LakeMinnetonka.com possible.

As always, our primary goal is to create an environment where Lake Minnetonka people from near and far can come together to learn about the community, communicate with their neighbors and find the goods and services they need - locally!

Have a terrific June, and please let us know how we're doing!

-The Skipper
