Volunteer Appreciation Night with the Minnesota Twins!
The Board of Directors of the Twin Cities Men's Center is always on the look out for ways to recognize and thank our volunteers. In the past recent years, we have been able to get complimentary tickets to Minnesota Twins games and we were able to do so again this year. We have 60 tickets for Saturday night, August 24 against Detroit for Joe Mauer bobblehead night! While we appreciate YOU, we also recognize that many of you have friends and significant others that you would like to share this event with. INVITE THEM!! They are welcome to join us, as well!
If you are a volunteer and are interested, contact Tom M, the Office Manager. In the past, we have had very good turn out and people have really enjoyed themselves! We would really love to have you attend another fun night with us and the Minnesota Twins! And the bats are really hot this year!!
Remembrances of TCMC Volunteer William Ranslow Zuber, III
Our dear friend William Ranslow Zuber, III died on 2019-July-15 in St. Paul. His decades of service to people on the social or psychological margins of life in St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota and beyond will benefit generations yet to come. His friendship, collegiality, and listening ears have enabled us men to be more than we could imagine. His insightful perceptions of this world's beauty and challenges have continued to be guiding lights to those of us who could spend time with Ranny in support groups or bookclubs, over Bridge games or campfires, or at plays, concerts, or the gym. Ranny believed we can face all challenges head on with eyes wide open and a smile for the next guy. Obit: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/twincities/obituary.aspx?n=william-r-zuber&pid=193444848
