AGLA's Public Board Meeting

Online event

Are you interested in being active in the local community? Sit in on the next AGLA Board meeting and meet the leadership team. We will meet on the patio and enjoy the dinner special. This is a great way to learn more about the organization and to be part of this grassroots organization. You can be an AGLA member regardless of where you reside.

AGLA is a strong beacon for equality. It is an inclusive nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit open to all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ) people and straight allies. It provides fun social activities, builds relationships with elected officials, and works with civic groups on community service. For more information, visit http://agla.org/volunteer/

In addition, as ongoing community service, if you can, please bring along travel-sized unused soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. for A-SPAN (http://www.a-span.org), which provides life-sustaining services for street people. Or clean out your cupboard of unused nonperishable food items for Arlington Food Assistance Center (http://www.afac.org/) . This event will serve as a convenient collection point.

MNSkating CANCELLED Amiably by Rink/ON HOLD...Zoom meeting instead

Hello there fellow MNSkaters!!! : ) I hate to announce it but MNSkating has amiably been CANCELLED by Laurel Skating Center due to lack of attendance, not bringing in enough revenue, and as icing on the cake, the "perfect storm" if you will, there was an unfortunate incident during the last skate that the police had to be called. That incident might have gone differently had I been able to be there, but, alas, as my mother is fighting cancer, and I am her only caregiver, I had to be with her that night and could not find a sitter...and so MNSkating has been cancelled and we are on hold for the moment. That said I am in again amiable negotiations to keep MNSkating "Alive and Rolling" and we will skate once again!!! As further explanation, the new variant of COVID hasn't helped attendance, nor did the holidays, nor the weather, so unless we get a huge level of support, I feel it prudent to wait out COVID for a few months so that when MNSkating returns, it does so with a bang, and not in a way that will have us cancelled again. I feel like we would only have one shot at reviving the monthly regular MNSkating event and again don't want to take a chance in starting right now with the current COVID complications at hand. We will be looking at a base fee of $500, from our original $250, so we will have to have much better attendance and will most likely do ticket presales to insure that we don't miss the mark. Any month we don't have the majority paid for, would effectively be a month that we wouldn't be able to rent the rink. Please spread the word, both in inviting people to build MNSkating, and that we are cancelled/on hold. Know that if it has anything to do with me, and a couple of standing donors that we already have under wing, WE WILL SKATE AGAIN!!! If nothing else we will have Special Edition MNSkates like PRIDE and certainly HALLOWEEN!!! VERY IMPORTANT...IF YOU ARE WILLING TO BE A "SUPPORTING MNSkater", PLEASE READ FURTHER... TO SUPPORT, PLEASE EMAIL [masked] with your name, phone number and monthly donation amount. A "Supporting MNSkater" would pay $20 (or more), even if you did not skate. If we have near $500 in support, we can have a monthly skate as before. We as the MNSkating community/family/friends are and forever will be grateful for this level of support. We have one donor that has offered $100/month and another that had always offered $50/month, so if any one of us can afford to support at that or any level, and to those that already have or will, THANK YOU as that was/would be Lovely and Super and TOTALLY AWESOME!!! Thanks for always being there and I look forward to us skating again in fabulous glory and glee!!! In Peace, Love and Skating...........Ward : )
