Join for a Special Gift

The calm before the storm.

Hello, my fellow snow-shoveling, salt-shuffling, sofa-snuggling readers!

Whether you’re new to the site or a veteran, there has never been a better a better time to join as a member. Why, you ask? Because if you join today through December 19 (the date of the winter fundraiser), you will receive not only a notebook but also a water bottle, as our way of saying welcome to the community!
As a volunteer-run non-profit, we rely heavily on contributions from our readers and community members to keep bringing you excellent content. With your help, we will continue to foster positive connections and inclusive connections about better places in Minnesota.
Also, if you haven’t yet purchased your tickets for the winter fundraiser on December 19, you should do so now! There will be great people, scintillating conversation, a raffle, yummy food and beverages, as well as a special performance by the hilarious and thought-provoking Theater of Public Policy. If you’d like to join as a member at the fundraiser, I will be there to help you get signed up – and you’ll be able to take your water bottle home with you that evening (the notebook will be shipped to you shortly afterwards).
Thank you and Happy Holidays –
Katie Emory, Membership Committee Chair
