Key City Breakfast Club with the Mankato Mayor
Primrose of Mankato started the “Key City Senior Breakfast Club” in May of 2011 and it continues to grow and thrive.
“The monthly breakfast club idea was born from the requests of our residents to have more guest speakers, and ways to stay involved with their community” says Rachel Carpenter, Marketing & Life Enrichment Coordinator at Primrose of Mankato.
The club is open to all Primrose Residents and also any senior in the Mankato Community — as long as you are age 55 + you can attend.
Meeting the first Thursday of every month at Primrose, breakfast club members enjoy a delicious, hot breakfast prepared by the Primrose Kitchen, a chance to socialize with people of their same age and shared interests, and perhaps the best part — they get to meet and hear presentations from a variety of “Key City Officials” each month.
Our guest speakers have included the Mankato Mayor, a Minnesota State Representative, County Commissioners, our local Police Department, City Officials, local non-profit organizations, local business owners, and more!
We strive to invite speakers that our club members want to hear from — people that can share information about topics that matter to our local seniors.
“It is also important that we make this club accessible and affordable for anyone who wants to attend,” says Brooke Olson, Executive Director of Primrose of Mankato. First time attendees do not pay anything for the breakfast, it is compliments of Primrose. After that there is a small fee of just $3 per person.
“The Key City Breakfast Club has been a wonderful opportunity for residents and guests alike to meet new people, socialize, and feel connected to their community,” says Rachel Carpenter.
