Highlight of the week:

MASCUSA 2012 Nationals Banquet


Our Annual Banquet is being held this year at Oak Glen Golf and Banquet Facility. This lovely country club is less than 3 miles from our host hotel and less than 5 miles from the fairgrounds. Because it can get so hot in Minnesota in August we will have pet sitters in the hospitality room at the Lexington Inn and suites for our member's dogs so that we may enjoy our evening without worry. Just bring your dogs and crates to the hospitality room and pay only $2 per hour per dog! It's a great value for your peace of mind so that you can enjoy your banquet.


Our evening will begin with a cash bar Happy Hour from 5:30 - 6:30. Our buffet will begin at 6:30. With dessert we will start our program with the MASCUSA annual awards, MS-MVA awards, MARS live auction with Karen Keller as our auctioneer, silent auction supporting a local rescue and conclude the evening with the MASCUSA annual meeting.


This is going to be a fantastic event you won't want to miss out!
