Minneapolis Breakfast Club

Les Jones Roofing – We Are On Top!

Good morning Breakfast Club!  We had a total of 48 members who joined us today for fellowship, breakfast, and business. The first to arrive today were Dick Anderson and Robert Sanberg.

President Robbie Danko started the meeting with a joke to liven up the day: “Why don’t you see elephants in trees? Because they’re really good at hiding.”

Our guests today were Cody Jacobsen of Triton Commerce/Socially Smitten and Rob Fredrickson with Les Jones Roofing. We were also joined by honorary members Russ Bremner, Ron Britz, Mark Simon and Martin Peyer.

Welcome to our newest member, Jerry Olson of Resultants for Business! Be sure to say “Hello!” at next week’s meeting.

Please let Robbie know about your reception of the Newsletter by responding “Yes” or “No” to her inquiry sent the morning of August 3rd. We are in need of a 3-4 person task force to review the website, and give a list to Kelsey of items that are in need of fixing. Volunteer by contacting Robbie at rdanko@lvcinc.com.
