Tuesday we held our bi-annual spring mixer at Excelsior Brewing Company in Excelsior Minnesota. The beer was delicious as was the food, catered in by Lago Tacos also in Excelsior. The turnout was amazing with almost 200 people in attendance, what a great event!
What is a Fazendin Mixer? Well it really started some 40 years ago with our then owner’s wife, Lynn Fazendin. Lynn would hold luncheons for newly relocated clients to the Twin Cities in her home. The objective was to welcome transferees to the area and meet new people. It’s tough to move to a new city and not know anyone. This style of mixer slowly dropped off over time as more and more women were working and not able to attend the luncheons. That brings us to 3 years ago when our newly appointed Relocation Director, Beau Bruneau decided to reprise the tradition. Though instead of a luncheon, he decided to hold a social, networking mixer at the Roger Fazendin office. This was a great way to restart our mixer series, but we soon outgrew our space and needed a fresh place to hold the mixers. This brings us to our first, “out of the box” mixer at Excelsior Brewing Company. Over time we invited more and more guests too, feeling all of our clients would appreciate an evening of libations and socializing. It looks like we were right! Our last event on Tuesday filled the Excelsior Brewery to the brim!
Didn’t make it to this mixer? Want to come next time? We would love to have you. We don’t know where it will be next time, but we can tell you it will be held sometime during the week of October the 18th, at an exciting location around the Twin Cities! Look for your invites the last week of September, or contact your Roger Fazendin agent or staff member and let them know you want to join in on the festivities!
A special thanks to the Fazendin’s for hosting such a great event and our staff, Shelly, Margaret and Beau for their hard work in putting this event on.
