Karen Goes To Bloomington:
The time of year has come and gone where your “faithful elf” visited the Bloomington sales team and held meetings with YOU, our members. I always love these visits, and I love hearing about trips that YOU have taken over the past year using YOUR membership.
Everyone was so excited to meet with me about our newest location, The St. Croix River Resort. One member even drove up to the new resort (without his wife) to check out our newest property. I was very happy about the enthusiasm, and I can’t wait to visit this new resort myself!
Nothing says summers in Minnesota like camping, tubing and fishing! It was fun to show you pictures of the new resort, the awesome amenities this resort will offer, and the beautiful private camping sites. My favorite picture is of Andrea, our Member Services Manager, standing in front of the big bus that will take you and your family (and me!) down to the St. Croix River to canoe and tube!
Even in the midst of a very busy week of member meetings, I did manage to do one of my favorite Christmas time activities—SHOPPING!!! I didn’t have a lot of time, so I refer to my Mall of America shopping experience as “sprint shopping.” I also learned that pedestrians can no longer cross the road to TGI Fridays…the hard way!
All in all, I had a wonderful experience, not only with the members, but with Charley, Brenda, and the amazing sales staff at our Bloomington Office. Thanks again for letting me take over your office, and talk to our members about their existing and new benefits. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces at our properties this summer!
I’ll let you all know when I’m in your neck of the woods again in 2015. I hope that every one of you has a safe holiday season, and a very happy New Year! I can’t wait to see you all next year! I hope everyone receives gifts of love and happiness as we enter a brand new year with many exciting new things in store for all of us!
Your Faithful Elf,
