  • December Luncheon

    As usual, we will not have a fourth-Thursday luncheon in November -- happy Thanksgiving!

    If it is safe to do so, we will hold our Annual Holiday Celebration on Thursday, December 3 from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is tentatively scheduled to be an in-person gathering at our regular location, Embassy Suites in Brooklyn Center. Registration will be limited based on available room size, and measures will be in place to encourage physical distancing. Face covering usage will follow state mandates in place at that time; currently, this would mean wearing a mask unless you're seated to dine at your table.

    More information to come -- watch the website, Facebook, and email announcements.
