My Favorite Events!

Some of my favorite events are centered around Minnesota themes:  Tailgating before a Twins game, eating peanuts at the stadium and cheering on our home team, or taking in a St. Paul Saints game while throwing around a football and tossing some bean bags…… Then we made the State Fair more fun with our own scavenger hunt – searching around the fairgrounds for various items, new foods, and of course SAMPLING any food that comes on a stick!  But my absolute favorite event is enjoying our beautiful outdoors with a bonfire and roasting s’mores!  Have you ever had a marshmallow with a rolo melted inside, sandwiched between a graham cracker and a fudge-stripe cookie?  I highly recommend it!  I’m looking forward to what our Minnesota Fall has to offer!

We Volunteer…..

Events and Adventures Volunteers Spend a Day Building at Twin Cities Habitat’s First Ever Net-Zero Energy Home…

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity invites a wide array of volunteer groups to help build community at Habitat build sites. Be it a group of co-workers, members of the same faith community, or even a family and friends celebrating a birthday together, there are few better ways to spend a day together than making a difference in the life of a well-deserving family.

On Saturday, November 9th, we Events & Adventures volunteers helped put the finishing touches on Twin Cities Habitat’s first ever net-zero energy home. This unique home will have solar panels for generating electricity and hot water. It will be the most efficient home Twin Cities Habitat has ever built. The family that is buying it is getting special training on all of the home’s green features. By the day’s end, our team of 8 Events & Adventures members equally agreed that “when you give to others, everyone wins!”

This is one of the charities that we volunteer with and what’s great about these events is that it’s a 2-4-1… you get to meet new people AND help out a family in need!  There is always an opportunity with E&A!
