Notes:
  • The December Holidays meeting featured the wonderful Irondale choir, a traditional program eagerly anticipated and enjoyed.
  • The Club presented checks to support three local organizations:
    • Community Support Center, which works to prevent eviction, prevent shut-offs, identify resources and offer continuing support to residents of New Brighton, Mounds View, Shoreview and Arden hills. Karen Meyer, its director, accepted the check from President John Johnson (below) and expressed appreciation that we chose them to benefit from Fund-a-Cause at our Gold Plate Dinner next April. 
  •  The Ralph Reeder Food Shelf, which provides food, quilts and other necessities to residents of the Mounds View School District. Director Lisa Baker said demand is up 30% over last year. Named for the first Superintendant of the Mounds View School District, the Food Shelf has operated for 40 years. They hosted 1,100 children last week at a special holiday event.  Lisa Baker accepted the club's check for $1,000 from Nyle Zikmund (below)
                 
 
  • The Irondale Choir, which has entertained us for more than 20 years under the direction of Jason Etten.  Their consistent excellence and enthusiasm bring joy, and we love to sing along with carols.  Jason and Irondale Principal Vichai Saefong accepted the club's check for $500, below.
