September Meeting Review

The September 19, 2014 meeting marked the end of an era, as we transitioned from our long time home at The Liberty/Associated Bank to our new location at the Presbyterian Homes and Services Building in Roseville.  The location, courtesy of Randy, is first class and everyone enjoyed our new accommodations.  See the previous post for address and directions.   Along with our new location, it is important to note that we will now be starting our meetings at 6:30 pm in the future.  It was agreed that most members are arriving well in advance of the 7:00 pm start time and we may as well get an earlier start to allow for an earlier ride home.

The theme of the meeting was Pelikan Pens, and Francis gave an excellent overview of their history as well as sharing his amazing collection.  He has also provided this website link for all to peruse further Pelikan information.

Other members also shared their collections, and as you can see by the photo summary below, there are many of these birds residing in Minnesota!
