Greetings! I’m Stef Braun, new Program Coordinator. In the week since I started Sept. 8, I’ve already met so many great people -- and hope to meet many more! I’ve been a certified personal fitness trainer for 10 years, working at Snap Fitness and other fitness busi-nesses. When I lived in Rochester, I was employed in human resources and office management positions. Growing up in Rochester, I met and married my hus-band, Joe; we lived there until 1998 when we moved to Lake City where Joe established Braun Plumbing. We have two daughters: Carlee is in 10th grade and just got her driving permit in July. She has been doing well, but as a parent I find it terrifying! CeCelia is in 8th grade; the highlight of her summer was getting her braces off and a fishing trip to Canada. As with most parents, I stay extremely busy running our girls to various activities, sports and functions. In our spare time, the family spends as much of the summer as possible on or by the water. In fall and winter, we tend to be home more -- or rather I’m at home more and enjoy some alone time -- as Joe and the girls enjoy the outdoors and hunting. I’m thrilled to be here and am getting acclimated to my new surroundings. This is an amazing facility.
Carl celebrates his 80th birthday in September with the Red Wing Pottery Coffee Group. It meets at 9:30 a.m. M-W-F in the board room. Happy Birthday Carl!
Like the sweet music heard in Carnegie Hall, the enchanting music filled Pier 55’s community room as RWAS members and guests enjoyed the international offerings of Angelica Minero Escobar and Michael Tsalka from Spain.
