East Pine County Wanderers’ Meeting, January 31, 2018

About 22 members of the East Pine County Wanderers were in attendance at the  monthly meeting, Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at the Arna Town Hall in Markville, MN.

Food was bountiful, conversation was hearty and friendships were rekindled or started.

The speaker for the day was Tom Hanks from Humana Insurance.  He spoke about Medicare and the different parts of it.  According to Hanks, if you’re within three months of being age 65, it is very important to talk with someone like him about Medicare.  The decisions that you make when signing up for Medicare can have a long term impact on the benefits and premium that you pay.

Toni and Glen Williamson provided the birthday cake and door prize.  Dave Drake was the winner of this prize which included a bottle of wine, an air fresher difuser and two small stuffed animals. 

January birthdays for the group were Patrice Winfield and Gladys Nelson. 

The next meeting will be February 28, 2018, noon at Cloverton Town Hall with Jeanne Larson doing a presentation on the presidents of the United States.

Kevin’s 60th Birthday Party and Bear Creek Tavern in Cloverdale

Last Saturday night on our way home, we decided to stop in at Bear Creek Tavern in Cloverdale (formerly Tank’s Bar).  Well, we were pleasantly surprised.  It was Kevin’s 60th Birthday Party.  

Kevin was raised just a couple miles down the road, but now lives in the Twin Cities.

Fun was had by all.  Toni sung karaoke.

If you’re looking for a fun bar to visit, check out Bear Creek Tavern, about eight miles east of Hinckley Grand Casino in Cloverdale.  

Be sure to tell the owners that Toni and Glen from Duxbury told you about it.
