MINIs at the Market

So who is up for “MINIS AT THE MARKET” Sunday June 29th, at Spa City Farmers’ Market at Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs???

They are promising some great sampling for us, good music and coveted parking. We do need to get an idea of numbers so please RSVP here or on facebook.

The Market is located on the lawn in front of the Lincoln Baths. They are celebrating their 1 year Anniversary so there is going to be lots of action including a pie eating contest! It is also the Jazz Festival weekend at SPAC!

We are welcome 10-3, but our special sampling will be at noon at our parking area. See you there!

For more information and directions visit www.spacityfarmersmarket.com.

Keeler Block Party

Keeler MINI would like us all to come to their BLOCK PARTY Saturday June 7th.

There is free lunch (sometimes they have an ice cream truck). Dan likes the band the best. They have had a $50 gift card prize in the past, so we can hope they might do that again. I told them we wouldn’t come if we had to park in the gravel lot and they said OK we can park right in front of the MINI building! I’m thinking they really want us there :)

Please REPLY here/to mpgminis if you think you can make it.
