Minneapolis Breakfast Club

Lobby Wisely With Solomon Strategies Group

Here it is the day after Tax Day and the early birds showed up to commiserate. First to arrive were the regular crew of Dick Anderson, Robert Sanberg, and Mark Arnold.

The meeting was called to order by President Robert Sanberg with a ring of the bell and a moment of silence.

Guests today were President Robert Sanberg’s father Dean Sanberg, brought by Tom Ashbaugh, and Chris Palm who was brought by his father, Mike Palm.  It was also nice to see Jim Scott of Norcostco in attendance.

Honorary members in attendance were Martin Peyer, Russ Bremner, Mark Simon.

The annual golf outing is scheduled for June 19th at Forest Hills Country Club. Get your foursome of members and non-members together for a day of fun.
