The club meets every Monday, normally at Mark's restaurant in Minden. Meetings start at 5:45 pm and usually
includes dinner (from the menu), followed by a speaker talking about a topic of interest to the community, then some club business that needs attention. Meetings are very informal and a lot of fun. Come out to one or more meetings as a guest and experience the camaraderie enjoyed by your fellow citizens of Minden. In case the meeting is moved to another location or replaced by a club activity, please let us know you are coming by sending an email to
