11/11/17 The November Fall Membership Meeting was held on Veteran’s Day this year. It was an evening of shopping with lots of discounts on items – hmmm, Christmas gifts, chatting with friends, making new friends, and of course – the Board nominees speeches.
Just prior to Paul Swanson calling the membership meeting to order, Joe Karpowicz spoke to the membership and thanked veteran Bill Casey, for bringing his personal flag for the Pledge of Allegiance, and introduced veterans Steve Sandburg and Dave Lindorff who would be the honor guard.
Impulsively, just before the meeting, we decided to do a Facebook Live Stream during part of the meeting and,  the response to having a Live Stream has been positive.  Thank you Renee Kaulfuss for finding the location for the meeting and for all you has done over the years as the committee coordinator for the Fall Membership Meeting; and, thank to Joe Karpowicz for your assistance on the committee and for being our photographer for the Live Stream.

From Renee Kaulfuss: Thank you to all the members who attended the MSRA annual Halloween party! We had a great time and everyone especially enjoyed the T-Rex’s who provided fun entertainment. Sending out a special shout out to Loran and Pam Mogensen, my daughter Katie and to the MSRA costume contest judges who helped to make this event fun for all who attended. Wishing our members a safe and fun Halloween!
And from all of us in MSRA: Renee, you have been the coordinator of this event for the past several years. Thank you for all that you have done to make this event one that our members really enjoy and look forward too!
