Message from the President

Dear Members:

Now is a great time to get involved with the Twin Cities Michigan Club again. I'm delighted to tell you that we have an outstanding roster of upcoming events and activities in the coming weeks and months. Just to whet your appetite, here's a quick look at what we have coming up.

I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events. Go Blue!

Nelson L. Peralta
President, Twin Cities Michigan Club

4th Annual Bowl-a-thon

The University of Michigan Club of the Twin Cities cordially invites you to a fundraising event that supports the club's Scholarship Fund. Each year the club awards 1 or 2 scholarships to returning second year Michigan students who meet the following requirements: they must have been originally from the greater Twin Cities area, displayed strong academic performance in their first year, demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities, and shown significant commitment to social responsibility in their extracurricular activities. The bowl-a-thon is a fun way to support a great cause and will be a good way to reconnect with old friends and maybe even make a few new ones!

Networking/Happy Hour

If you haven't been participating in Club events, you've been missing out. We've been a very busy group and plan on continuing that trend. Check us out at The Newsroom in downtown Minneapolis on February 22, beginning at 5:15 p.m. for a casual networking/happy hour get-together. We hope you'll make a resolution to connect with the Club!

Maybe you want to find Wolverines who live in the area or share the same career goals. Perhaps you want to help recruit future Michigan students or volunteer as an advocate for the University. No matter what sort of Michigan connection you're looking to make, we can help.

Alternative Spring Break

A group of Michigan students will be working on two projects in the area: One focusing on Domestic Violence at Tubman Family Alliance in Minneapolis, and one tutoring immigrant children at Como Elementary School in St. Paul. We take them out for dinner afterwards.

This is a great opportunity to talk with students about The University as well as support them in their volunteer efforts to make our area a better place. We had rave reviews of this event last year.

Feed My Starving Children

Our club will be volunteering at Feed My Starving Children. We would be happy to have you there! Feel free to invite similarly inclined friends and family members to join us, as well. Children (3rd grade and older) are welcome, too!

Your gift of time and energy will make a difference in the lives of thousands of children. You will have a unique opportunity to discover how the simple, hands-on action of packaging nutritious meals deepens everyone's sense of spirit and community. At the same time, you will make a real difference in the lives of children in difficult situations.
