MNRPCV 2016 Membership Meeting and Potluck Picnic

August 7th, 2016

Saturday, September 10, 4:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Minnehaha Park–Wabun Picnic Area, Shelter G

4655 46th Ave S., Minneapolis, MN 55406

Picnic starts at 4:30 PM – Meeting at 6:00 PM

Join Minnesota Returned Peace Corps Volunteers for our Annual Membership Meeting and Picnic, held this year at the scenic Wabun Picnic Area in Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park. We’ll start the potluck picnic at 4:30 PM in Shelter G in Wabun Park (see map here: https://www.minneapolisparks.org/_asset/jcyws1/minnehaha_park_picnic_map.pdf). Please bring a dish to share and folding chairs for extra seating, if you can. We’ll provide drinks of a non-alcoholic variety, and we can fire up the grill if anyone wants to bring grillables. Lawn games and frisbee golf on Minneapolis’ best course are fun social options at Wabun, and there is a great playground for kids.

After the picnic, stay for the Annual Membership Meeting beginning at 6:00 PM. The 2015-16 board will share reports about the group’s work from the past year, and we’ll elect a new board for 2016-17. We’ll also be voting on a revised set of bylaws that the Bylaws Committee has been working hard on over the past year. Other business and announcements may be raised by members at the meeting. Remember, only MNRPCV members may vote at the Annual Meeting, so get your membership in order (this can be done at the meeting. Bring your $15 annual membership dues in cash or check. First time members–your first year is free!) [Note: In our new membership schema, rather than everyone having a different renewal date, everyone’s membership will be September 1st through August 31st. This will simplify things for all involved.]

The Annual Meeting and Picnic will also be your first chance to get your hands on the 2017 RPCV Calendars, our biggest fundraiser of the year. Calendars are $12 each and notecards are $8 per set–an even $20 will get you one of each! Get a head start on your holiday shopping–it’s never too early!
