Quality Programs Don’t Happen by Themselves.

CVLR continues to thrive and serve its members well. You will find a wide spectrum of seventy-four offerings listed for this fall term. Keeping in mind that this term is relatively short, an extensive list like this is very generous, indeed. For that you can thank the people who put together your programs. I’ve heard comments from people in other organizations and states praising our long list of interesting offerings. To maintain our high quality of offerings, our program committee needs fresh ideas and new volunteers. Last month three program committee members moved onto the board to replace three retiring board members. Therefore we have openings for people who would like to step up to help keep our programs vibrant. Please contact me if you want to join the program committee.

In July members filled two buses to visit the St. Paul Wabasha caves, take a guided tour of gangster sites in St. Paul, and see the historic Landmark Center.  Here are some of the notable pictures snapped by members.  From the first minute to the last, we were amazed.
