Looking for the Journey to Babble? It’s a week later.

Well, it's the weekend of the 6th of May, and you're expecting the Journey to Babble Tour.  You might have also figured that we've moved it to one week later, after the meeting on the 13th.

This is the third year of the Journey to Babble Tour.  The third installment is just a little different than the first two.  First, we’re having after the General Membership meeting, so we’re reducing it from four stops to three.   Second, Babble isn’t just for beer any more.

We’re starting with a food and brew at a brewpub, next cocktails at a local distillery, and then creative drinks and fun at an artist-drive venue with more than just food and drink.    Enjoy!

The monthly meeting is at the Mounds View Public Library, where we'll start out at around 2:00PM if all goes well.

CHUCKWAGON 2017 was the most successful yet!! 

CHUCKWAGON 2017 was the most successful yet!!

We sold 111 tickets this year!!  The menu was three types of chili with all the fixings you could possibly imagine.  The American Legion cooked the main chili and we received lots of compliments on how wonderful all the chili’s tasted.  The auction was outstanding with wonderful items to pick from.

We made a change from the VFW in St Paul to the American Legion in Savage.  The room was fantastic, open and larger than previously used.  The staff at the American Legion were absolutely superior – they were so helpful with anything we needed.  We are so, so excited to announce that after expenses we made $2,419.41.  The largest income from this event ever made!!  Of that amount we will be donating $245.00 to the Veteran’s Palliative Care Unit in loving memory of our dear Lucia Johnson.

Please note the 2017 Chuckwagon was our seventh year for this fundraiser.  In the seven years we have made $12,599.64 in profits!  THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND CONTINUED EFFORTS!!
