Get to know Tyler, MN…
Tyler, situated in Lincoln County, is located 28 miles southwest of Marshall, Minnesota, 37 miles east of Brookings, South Dakota, and 170 miles southwest of the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area.
Known as ‘Minnesota’s Danish Heartland’, this small community is accomplishing big things! The Tyler Area Community Foundation rallies generous supports each year to fund community projects that would normally be unattainable for a small town.
According to the Foundation’s blog, this year’s project…
RTR Baseball Field Project in Ruthton. The project will allow the field to meet the MN State High School requirements for baseball fields.
The project was an idea of parents of the baseball players and has been supported by the RTR School Board. The school has committed $36,000 for the project and the RTR Baseball Committee has indicated the desire to continue fundraising to make additional updates to the field. The committee joined us for our foundation meeting in August and indicated that they have identified an additional $50,000 in equipment and project needs to finish the project.
The additional projects included part of the new scoreboard, additional ag lime for the field, grass seed and fertilizer, fencing for bullpens, expansion of the existing dugouts, maintenance equipment, a line marking machine and template for the batter’s box, additional lighting, new sound system, larger concession stand, new bathrooms and a crow’s nest for local media. As you can see, there is still a lot of needs to make this a great baseball field.
RTR (Russell, Tyler, Ruthton) School District consists of an elementary school in Ruthton; a middle school in Russell; and a high school in Tyler with an approximate enrollment for the 2015/2016 school year of 605 students. And they offer something very unique… Intergenerational courses that pair senior citizens with high school students!
Tyler is also an Avera Healthcare (THC) community. Along with day-to-day medical care, the Tyler Healthcare Center also provides Nursing Home services.
Sunrise Manor may be the perfect solution for keeping Mom and Dad close by!

This past July, during the annual Aebleskiver Days, THC celebrated their 100th year anniversary!
What is an Aebleskiver, you may ask. Wikipedia defines it as…
Æbleskiver (Danish pronunciation: [ˈɛːb̥ləˌsɡ̊iːʊ̯ɐ], [singular: æbleskive]), also called “appleskives” are traditional Danish pancakes in a distinctive shape of a sphere. The name literally means apple slices in Danish, although apples are not an ingredient. Somewhat similar in texture to European pancakes crossed with a popover or Yorkshire pudding, æbleskiver are solid like a pancake but light and fluffy like a popover. The English language spelling is usually aebleskiver or ebleskiver.
In the United States, a version of æbleskiver is sold with a commercially repackaged pan, branded as “Pancake Puffs”. – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86bleskiver
Tyler, MN, is rich in Danish culture. This 3 day celebration is a way of honoring the heritage and keeping the traditions alive. Folk dancing and an Æbleskiver feed combine with plenty of modern activities makes it a blaste for the whole family!
A fun activity leading up to the celebration is a wooden Æbleskiver hunt.
The one smart enough to follow the clues and find the hidden treasure receives $50 in Tyler bucks! I wonder how many Æbleskivers that will buy?!
But don’t wait for the golf tournament. The Tyler Golf Course has something going on all year round! In fact, watch the Tyler Golf Club FB page for Winter Bean Bag Tournaments and Sunday luncheons in the Clubhouse.
