Men's Center Bulletin Board

We have been a vital part of the Twin Cities community for decades, and almost all of our services have been provided by volunteers like you. Volunteer your time at a support group. Perhaps you have a skill like carpentry or desktop publishing you can offer TCMC. Or maybe you have office equipment / supplies that you'd like to give. Call our Office Manager at 612-822-5892 and ask how you can help. See our complete volunteer list.

There was a TCMC cleanup day held on April 23 and we painted the foyer, snack room, and library on April 30, 2016.

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.

TCMC 40th Anniversary Planning

Tom Weaver and John Ruud have stepped up to co-chair the TCMC 40th Anniversary ARC Committee, charged with planning a celebration of the decades of committed work done at the Twin Cities Men’s Center on behalf of men.

In the first two meetings at Common Roots, men shared ideas and visions for our upcoming 2016 Celebration.  The acronym, ARC, stands for Action–Reflection–Celebration. Participating men actively dialogued about rebranding the TCMC, increasing its visibility, and being present and serving men where they are in their life “ARC”
Our working mission as of today is:
W
e create an attractive springboard for reconnection and celebration, through inviting active communication, including social media, on-line, print, audio and video, culminating in an engaging community celebration on Oct 22, 2016.

If you are interested in sharing your talents and muscle, please contact the TCMC 40th Anniversary ARC Committee at tcmc@tcmc.org
