OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
It's really April? I can hardly believe it! This is the month I've been waiting for.  The Park OffiCenter remodel is officially complete and we are celebrating Thursday morning at Park CONNECT Networking. The PodCast Studio opened ahead of schedule, to the delight of members who are already using the space. I am so proud of the new training room, kitchen/work area, micro-offices and wine bar. Hope to see you at 9:00 Thursday morning as we show off our remodel!

Happy birthday to Minnetonka OffiCenter who is 3 this month and happy 1st birthday to Woodbury OffiCenter where we rented 5 new offices last week. Everything is moving forward and the future is bright!  On a personal level, April is my own birthday month and we are celebrating on April 16 with a special Slice of Woodbury event with pizza and cake. Happy birthday Woodbury and to me, as well! Join us to network that day!

Lastly, Edina OffiCenter is wrapping up a complete remodel and we will be ready to reveal the updates on April 10 for a special Donut Day Palooza. Please join us for what is the completion of our 7th location. The workspace was very dated and we are elevating the Work Awesome experience by adding many of our OffiCenter touches, but with a TWIST!

Hope to see you in this month! Come for cake and treats and stay for networking.

No kidding!  Anne shared her unique technique of dipping ink on plastic and blowing with a straw to create her stunning "visual blessings". It's been two years since Anne started Soul Painting and she has "breathed" life into over 900 paintings.
