Recent & Future Meetings

In-Person Meeting Plan: June 9, 2021

For the June 9 membership meeting (barring any major changes in the pandemic) we will be gathering at "The Landing" in Shakopee: 2187 Highway 101 E, Shakopee, MN 55379.

We are following the Minnesota Department of Health guidelines as to how many people we have in attendance. Right now that is 50 people. To do this we need people to call or email and make reservations so we can track and manage this. Kim Maas has kindly volunteered to keep a list, including a waiting list of people who are sure they will make it. This will be managed as first come, first served, just to get that out there right away.

I realize this is frustrating, troublesome and possibly other things, but the planning committee feels this is the most responsible way to have an in-person meeting at this time.

Kim's phone number is 651-328-7219. She can be emailed at the Guild volunteer email address We will be sending out a notice on the bellows as well. If conditions change, either better or worse, we will then have the contact info for attendees.

For the meeting itself Myron will bring a forge and demonstrate either leaf key chain fobs, or calla lilies, and Bob Brown will demonstrate the blown over leaf scroll, as was used in Mark Pearce's candelabra and is used in railings fences and grills.

There will be No Pot Luck. Bring food & drink only for yourselves, or eat beforehand. Again, this is due to pandemic concerns. We have lost too many people to not take this simple precaution. We will need to socially distance ourselves, and we strongly encourage the use of masks. I want to see everyone, but for a long time to come, not just right now.

Please call or email Kim Maas and get your names down if you plan on attending. View the Three Rivers Parks website (of which The Landing is a part) at the link below:
