Give to the Gerald Obremski
Anger Management Scholarship Fund

Gerald was a long time facilitator of the anger management program and a treasurer of the twin cities men's center. For over 12 years Gerald conducted classes and generously donated not only his time but also office space in Hopkins. Gerald was always reaching out to other men, giving them support to help men become more than their childhood patterns. Last September, Gerald passed away.

A scholarship fund to partially cover the cost of the class( now $250) has been set up to honor Gerry's legacy and to continue the work of helping men. If you are grateful for the anger management class, please send a contribution so others can take this class. Please send in the coupon below with your contribution.

The Annual Meeting will include election of new members to the Board of Directors, thanks to our volunteers, review of our achievements this past year, and socializing with your fellow Men's Center members. We have moved forward on many projects this year so come and celebrate what has been done and where we are going. If you have any questions, call the Men's Center offices at 612-822-5892.

The Men's Center By-Laws require a quorum of members to elect new board members. This mailing constitutes notice to all active members that a vote will be conducted by those members who are present at this meeting. If you cannot attend and wish to vote, please return your proxy form including your mailing label to TCMC prior to Jan 10, 2015. All members who do not vote by mail or in person, consent to the appointment of the Chair and the Vice-Chair the power to vote on their behalf, on all matters that come before the Annual Meeting.

The Annual Facilitator Training

will be held Saturday January 10th, 2015 after the annual meeting which begins at 9am, and facilitator training will begin about 11:00am. We will take a lunch break about 1pm with a free lunch provided by the Men’s Center! Training will continue after lunch. If you have your facilitator training manual, please bring it to the training session.

Randy Genrich and Norm Petrik will again lead this annual training to update facilitators on expectations for facilitators, including setting limits quickly if a group member expresses anger at another group member. We will give needed help on how to lead groups and share our experiences. I hope all facilitators and men interested in learning to become a facilitator, will come. We very much appreciate your help for the Men’s Center by facilitating!

Addiction Busters Support Group Notice

The long running Addiction Busters Support group will no longer be open to new members as of December 1. The group will be facilitated until the current membership moves on or when the TCMC Board chooses a closing date. There are two non-TCMC Addiction Alternative groups that meet at the Men’s Center on Sundays and Wednesdays. Both are very popular and should fill the small gap in community support that the closing of Addiction Busters will leave.

— Tommy Jones, Facilitator
