We had great coffee to start the day here at Staples Advantage in Arden Hills. All the folks on the north side showed up early with a short commute today and as always some members stopped by The Woman’s Club on their way to Staples.
The meeting was called to order by President Robert Sanberg with a ring of the bell and a moment of silence.
Our honorary member in attendance was Mark Simon.
Our annual golf outing is on June 19th at Forest Hills Country Club. We’ll have sign-up sheets for your group of four soon! Please contact Paul Ralles if you have door prizes to donate.
There are Craft Talk openings in June, July, and August; please suggest a guest speaker or consider signing yourself up!
There is a board meeting next week.
House Lift Remodeler is in need of an expediter, project managers, and carpenters. Contact Randy Korn with any referrals.
