Please mark your calendars for the Minnesota Chapter’s annual WELCOME EVENT at Luxton Park Recreation Center (see map below) in Minneapolis. Come and meet Fulbright alumni now living in Minnesota who taught, studied, or did research abroad along with the many visiting Fulbright scholars from around the world.
There will be a free lunch (meat and vegetarian options) with an Asian buffet from UGarden Restaurant about noon and then time for games and recreation inside the recreation center and, weather permitting, outside as well. We hope to engage Fulbrighters beyond the Twin Cities. So, if you are a visitor travelling staying more than fifty miles from the Twin Cities, we can reimburse you for gas money for that trip or for bus fare; please let us know details in advance.
There is limited on-street parking in the area near Luxton Park (112 Williams Avenue, SE, Minneapolis). The Green Line Metro comes relatively close to the pavilion, which is just three blocks from University Avenue. The park is a reasonable walk from East Bank campus. Bike riders can easily access the park that is just a few blocks from West River Parkway and the UMN campus Transitway.
PLEASE do join us for lunch and mixers, even modest prizes. We are keen to see all of you this year as we again meet in person, cautiously. RSVP by October 10: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeYeCu71oBVx2zvwFZ6LSWn-UdwildmY6qDsRb_uitdeey3yg/viewform?vc=0&c=0&w=1&flr=0 .
