There were many birthdays to celebrate at our June co-op. Our July Birthday Co-op will be on July 18 at 5 p.m. Bring a covered dish to share, your table service, and any serving pieces needed. Bring your smile and sense of humor with you, because we have a good time. Members only, please. Ask about joining in the fun.
My trip to the Mississippi River has 50 members signed on. The trip will be Friday, Oct. 18. I also have a waiting list in case all 50 people can't go. The payment for this trip is needed by Sept. 6. Thanks to all those interested in this one day trip.
Milestone serves a tasty meal at 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday in our building. Stop by the club to get a menu. Please call a day ahead to order your lunch.
Our next trip to Meskwaki will be Aug. 20-21. I need your reservation by Friday, Aug. 2. With the cost you get your bus trip up and back, your room, $40 on your Meskwaki card, and you also get a $10 food voucher. This is a fun overnight trip. Then our last trip for this year will be Oct. 30-31.
Every other Friday, the building is open to the public for entertainment with the “Just Us” Band (free-will donation). Music starts at 6:30 p.m. with a co-op dinner at 7:30 p.m.
Next year’s trip offerings are to Canada in June and then to Vermont in October. I am planning ahead for the number of interested people. As of the time of this news, I have half the number of people needed to travel. Please let me know if you are interested in either or both of these trips.
We were awarded a grant to purchase two new flag poles. You, our members, purchased new flags: U.S. Flag, Iowa Flag, POW/MIA Flag, and a flag to represent all the branches of the military. The poles will be installed as soon as the weather permits and the workers are available. Thanks to all these available grants our facility is more beautiful and energy efficient.
