PresidentPresident's Note
Linda Debner
Has this been a gorgeous fall season, or what? I'm following the habit of my cats and I'm finding all the sunbeams I can, and that's where I spend my time.
It is the day after the election and, like many American's, I'm shocked by the outcome. President Elect Trump was a dark horse from the beginning and never expected to receive the Republican nomination, let alone winning the election.  It reminds me of another election us Minnesotan's have experienced ~ remember when Jesse Ventura was elected Governor?  Now we can see if President Elect Trump surrounds himself with smart people with a lot of experience, as Gov. Ventura did.  

This is really a busy time of year for all of us.  The Fall Aging Conference was a huge hit and received great reviews.  Thanks to all of you who were sponsors and vendors and also to all of you who attended the conference.  Yesterday was the MASWA/SPSWA Joint Public Policy meeting and the election.  There will be no MASWA membership meeting this month because it would fall on Thanksgiving Day.  

We can look forward to the Holiday Get-Together which takes place on December 12th at Schuler's, a bar and restaurant close to our usual meeting place.  There is an announcement regarding this event in this newsletter.  Please come and mingle. There are free drinks and pizza and it is always fun to visit with those we know and fun to meet those we don't know.  I'll look forward to seeing you there.

Enjoy the great fall weather and the upcoming holiday!
