President’s Letter

Spring Rising – Cree Woman’s Hood (close up)
Chholing Taha G259

Dear Members,

ART IN BLOOM IS HERE! 144 floral arrangements will be on display April 28 through May 1. Consider attending the Thursday morning lecture, the Saturday afternoon floral demonstration, and Family Day on Sunday.

Thank you to all members who attended the Patrick Noon lecture and the centennial luncheon on April 14. It was truly a joyous occasion. Opportunities to celebrate our 100th birthday are still coming your way. Are you interested in local history? The centennial committee has planned events with our neighbors at the Hennepin History Museum for June.

May 9, at 11:00 a.m. the Friends lecture series presents Anna Jackson, Keeper of the Asia Department, Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Starting at 10:00 a.m. coffee and treats will be served in the Fountain Court courtesy of the Rochester Friends. Please join me at 10:45, just prior to the lecture, for the Friends annual meeting in the Pillsbury Auditorium.

Don’t forget about your opportunity as a Friends member to participate in Friends Only tours and book club.

All event details and ticketing links are found in the Newsletter.

I am not alone in feeling giddy about spring, flowers and the privilege of gathering in person with cherished Friends at Mia. Don’t miss the fun.

Warmest regards,

Julie
