September 14, 2024 - Rochester (SE MN) meetup

:world_map: CITY/REGION: Rochester, Minnesota
:round_pushpin: MEETUP PLACE: Rochester Public Library (101 2nd St SE, Rochester MN 55904), 2nd Floor Meeting Room
:calendar: DATE: 09/14/2024
:alarm_clock: TIME: 1:00-3:00 pm
:page_facing_up: MEETUP PLAN: Commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Doctors Mayo USPS stamp in the hometown of Mayo Clinic!
Optional: At noon, we will meet at the Feith Family Park (1st St SW between 3rd and 4th Ave) where several statues tell the story of Mayo Clinic. I’ll narrate the rest. On the way to the library (a 10 min walk) there is an opportunity to stock up on MN/Rochester themed postcards at the Eagle Store.

Like last time, I reserved the 2nd floor meeting room of the Rochester Public Library from 1 pm - 3 pm. The 2nd floor is connected to the Civic Center Parking Ramp (on 1st Ave SE) and all of downtown by Skyway, parking is free on weekends. We’ll sign cards there and chat. Bring your favorite postcard(s), washi tape, stickers, stamps, pens. And your best postcrossing story! We’ll have a space to trade/recycle as well.

A meetup postcard will be designed and shared at a later date. It will be available for purchase at about $0.25/card to offset my printing costs. Every attendant is invited to create and print their own postcard design following guidelines, but all attendants should be able to order postcards from them.

After 3 pm, feel free to stick around for coffee, beer, pizza, ice cream, etc. (tbd) in Downtown Rochester (optional).

“This event does not occur in partnership with, nor is it endorsed by Rochester Public Library or the City of Rochester."

:point_up: Please make sure to read the Meetup Guidelines before signing up for a meetup.
