Meet Molly and Emilia... The Muniz family loves their summers together in beautiful Minnetonka playing tennis, biking together as a family and participating in MCE summer programming. Molly has great family memories through their participation in MCE programs. “The Tour de Tonka, when my whole family did it... We’re all at different levels and intensities of biking and we all had a great time. I think that day was probably the best day of one of the best summers ever.”

Minnetonka Community Education Wins Recent Awards

Minnetonka Community Education (MCE) was recognized in October by Minnesota Community Education Association (MCEA) for their March 2018 Top Customer Event. This award was a Project Award presented to outstanding projects that exemplify the concept of Community Education in the State of Minnesota. The Project Award is given to the program or event that best displays Cooperation, Teamwork, Use of Resources, Achievement and Community Impact. Minnetonka Community Education has been selected for an MCEA program or project award each year since 2012.

In November, MCE’s Top Customer event also won the International Award in Lifelong Learning for Best Programming by the Learning Resources Network (LERN), the largest continuing and community education association in the world. “The award is for innovation in the field of community education and serving communities,” noted LERN President William A.
