My two colonies were winter-killed due to last years drought. Is there anyone in minnesota area who might sell/give away a swarm or two? thanks

get your name on some of the swarm catch lists for your area and try craigs list.  most of the people i know who are catching swarms are doing it to build their own yards.  you, too, can catch swarms  grin

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Call the 911 operator tell them you will remove swarms.
Fire fighters and most of all your towns road and parks crew they know long before 911 normally.
The extension office too.
You might could run a add in the paper most will let you run one for free if you are doing it for free.
State in the add you are doing swarms not hives unless you would like to do them.

If your doing it for free you may get calls from people who do not know what they have.  They will call you for yellow jackets, wasps and things that look like bee's.  Before wasting your time ask question about what they are seeing, where it is, and size.
