OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
It's November and we have so much to be grateful for. Today it's official! We now have a lucky number seven location, Edina OffiCenter!  We are renovating what was an already existing workspace and look forward to bringing our new members a Work Awesome experience. See the new design HERE. Hammers will soon be swinging to get this project completed by year end. And yes, we will be open during the remodel! Join us on December 12 to welcome our newest members and help us make their first holiday luncheon memorable.

On October 19, we exceeded our goal by packing 315 lovitude kits for the Minneapolis homeless community. Thank you to everyone that donated personal care items or their time to help us make a difference. And, a special thank you to Anne Pryor for being the inspiration for this OneCommunity service project. Your compassionate spirit and generosity touched not only our volunteers, but the recipients as well. We will feature a complete recap in our December CONNECT Story. Thanks for GIVING!

Register now for our November networking events, the last of 2018. And, you know what that means? December and our annual holiday luncheons are right around the corner! See our event calendar for times and dates and RSVP now for our best attended events of the year! 

All of us at OffiCenters are wishing you a Thanksgiving filled with family, friends and great food. When I count my blessings I'm grateful to Work Awesome with all of you. Take time this month to count your blessings, as well. Happy Thanksgiving!

In the Spotlight
It's OffiCial!

The rumors can finally be confirmed, OffiCenters has a 7th location and it's in the heart of the Edina business district. Edina OffiCenter will become part of our community as of TODAY! Now members will have another option for full-time offices, meetings rooms and coworking! And, although it doesn't currently have the OffiCenters "look", the space will be undergoing a major transformation scheduled to start later this month. Several months of thoughtful planning and a carefully crafted construction plan allows Edina OffiCenter to stay open during our remodel. Members will still get the same great service they are accustomed to while we create a space where they can Work Awesome!
What's up in The North Loop!

There's a lot going on in the North Loop!
