MNE Potluck Family Picnic ~ Present Minnesota's World Fair Expo 2023 - Como Park

MINNESOTA NETWORK OF ENTREPRENEURS POTLUCK PICNIC - COMO PARK

                                          www.comozooconservatory.org

We have created a wonderful community with the Minnesota Network of Entrepreneurs - we want to share and celebrate our fraternity with family and friends.

Bring your picnic baskets and a food dish to share with others. The park has outdoor grills and electricity in our pavilion.

***Please respond in the comment section with the dish you will bring so we have some idea of how much of each kind of food we will have, and avoid doubles.  Thanks!***

Note:  The shelter is located behind the mini golf area and right next to a large parking lot.  Here is an aerial view:  http://www.stpaul.gov/DocumentCenter/Home/View/2484

    We're right across from Como Town, next to the mini golf. The address isn't showing up right in google maps. Look for the MeetUp signs.

    As a reminder, please try to bring something to drink for yourselves and eating utensils/plates/cups if you remember. We will have a few supplies, but it would be ideal if you could bring what you might need.

    Also, if you know what you're bringing, please mention it in the comments.

    August 2, 2014

  • Jim Jurewicz: The Brainstorm C.

    Ok, we will be going forward. We switched the venue to Como Park to be more accommodating

    August 1, 2014

  • Jim Jurewicz: The Brainstorm C.

    I need more support for the Potluck Picnic idea. I am getting the impression that there is little or no interest. Please speak up.

    July 25, 2014

  • Phyllis B.

    Hi Jim - Sounds like a fun networking time! I will be glad to help however I can.

    July 14, 2014

    • Jim Jurewicz: The Brainstorm C.

      Phyllis, thank you so much. I can use all the help I can get. Do you have any adult group game ideas that can keep people stimulated?

      July 14, 2014

  • Jim Jurewicz: The Brainstorm C.

    I heard nothing about date preference so at this point I am setting the date as Wed Aug 13

    July 14, 2014

  • Jim Jurewicz: The Brainstorm C.

    What day this week in August is mutually best for everyone? I also need to have some co-host volunteers to come forward and take a leadership role for this picnic.

    Please respond accordingly.
