Minneapolis Breakfast Club

Stay Connected with Select Communications

It was shaping up to be a beautiful summer day today. Those starting their day early were Mark Arnold, Dick Anderson, Tom Donnelly, and our Craft Talk speaker, Bob Alexander.

President Kelsey Wolter called the meeting to order this morning with a ring of the bell, a moment of silence, and another joke. Craig is personally waiting for a “blonde guy” joke before Kelsey ends her reign as President.

Today’s guests included Rob Alexander, Taylor Alexander, and Todd Alexander from Select Communications to do the heavy lifting.

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

This Monday, June 18th is the Annual Golf Outing at Forest Hills Country Club, with lunch at 11:30am. Sign-up your foursome with Paul Ralles and bring a door prize or two to donate.

The annual Minnetonka Boat Cruise is planned for August 8th and will be hosted by Mike Palm. Get ready for a night on the lake by joining the 50+ people who are already signed up!

There will be a Board Meeting after next week’s breakfast.

Jim Christianson with Staples Advantage is searching for an office furniture person. Please contact Jim with any leads.
