About Us

MN RiverCURE is made up of more than 500 people just like yourself. CURE is governed by an elected 15 member board of citizens from all over the region. Our board consists of farmers, teachers, sportsmen, homemakers, business owners, students and seniors.

The CURE Board meets on the last Thursday of each month. All Board meetings are open to the public. We are always interested in finding new board members and volunteers. Call us to talk about your interest.
