Shrine Chairmen Meeting - Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Thankfully, it's once again time to gather for a well-earned cigar. We've something special for our Chairmen board meeting on the evening of July 12th: SPECIAL LOCATION: We'll meet at our brother Shane Wendt's home, at 3458 Siems Court, Arden Hills, MN 55112, or rather, at the island directly to the east and behind his home. 6PM start.

The drive-in entrance to the island is fairly secluded: It's a block away. Turning off of Seims Ct., take Arden Place to the intersection of Ridgewood Road. Exactly at that intersection, look sharp for a small gate and dirt road on your right, leading to the island. You can park on the island. BYOB, and a side dish or $5 for food and fuel. We'll provide the entree. Parade chairs would be useful, and perhaps some bug spray. Plan to gather at 6:00, (earlier than normal), with a 6:30PM start to our short business meeting, grilling, and then an evening boat cruise. 

As the gentleman that you are, please RSVP through our CIO, Steve Miller so we have a head count for dinner, if you plan to go. We'll look for you. Questions? See Chaz Miller, yer CEO.
