Mayor for a Day

Mayor for a day 2Calling all Cottage Grove future leaders ages 8-12!

Are you interested in being Mayor for the day? As honorary Mayor, you’ll get the chance to be picked up from your school by the Chief of Police in his Police car, try on the same gear our Firemen wear when training and fighting fires, have pizza and ask questions with the (current) Mayor, tour city offices, ride on a Zamboni and more! Feeling a little shy? That’s okay! One or both of your parents will be with us the whole time! You’ll even get to meet the City Council and be presented with an official certificate that’s yours to keep! 

If you’re interested in holding the keys to the City, we want to hear from you! Write us a short essay, 250 words or less, explaining why you would like to be mayor for a day and what your vision is for the future of Cottage Grove.
