We are now firmly into the month of April and the weather is sticking true to a Minnesota spring. Some cold and snow and some warm rains. It is exciting to with each passing day that we are closer to summer yet some days it feels like the cold and snow will never end. Here hoping that by our Spring Luncheon on May 7th all the crazy weather will be behind us and we will all be basking in the warmth.


If you haven't registered for the spring luncheon don't delay. We have early bird pricing till April 23rd so register today! The members at large have worked hard this year to listen to your feedback and there will be a fresh new feel to the event this year. We look forward to seeing each of you there.


We are also excited about our April membership meeting. We will be discussing Cultural Diversity in Death & Dying. This is such an important topic for us as Senior Workers and the knowledge will be very helpful as we work with our clients and their families as they navigate this difficult time in life.
