WHAT A GREAT DAY! Today was our kick-off BEER (Bloomington, Edina, Eden Prairie and Richfield) event, hosted by the Edina Chamber at the Edina Country Club and featuring Ann Bancroft world renowned adventurer, author and teacher. This SOLD OUT event of over 200 attendees was awesome! Ms. Bancroft’s accomplishments are astounding and her dedication to education is most admirable. A group of VIP’s (local mayors and premier series sponsors) had the pleasure of a VIP meet and greet with Ms. Bancroft for several minutes prior to the event’s start.
I was tasked with closing the event – which meant I delivered the closing remarks – HOW DO YOU FOLLOW THAT?! Especially when my idea of an “adventure” is spontaneously running down to the Xcel Center to see if there are any last-minute tickets available for a Journey concert! Wowza…she was seriously awesome.
What’s even more seriously awesome is that all three of our 2014 monthly member meetings have SOLD OUT!! Let this be a lesson moving forward – DO NOT wait until the last minute to register for a Richfield Chamber event! Get registered today for the Salute to Small Business event April 15!
