Family Reunion in MN

Hello Everyone,

It’s getting on toward reunion time and I am so excited to see everyone!

I have been communicating with many of you via multiple channels, and I’m starting to lose track of who has what information, so for logistical purposes, I thought it might be easier to have all of this information in one place for all of us to find. Perhaps most importantly, I can keep updating it to the most current information.

Let me know if there is anything else you think should be added here.

Shuttles to Rochester

I think I’ve spoken with everyone about this already who is considering this, but just in case:

There are two shuttle services from the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport (MSP) to Rochester, Rochester Shuttle Service and Groome Transportation. Both leave from the same shuttle area at the airport (we just follow signs) and you want to be dropped off at the Microtel Inn and Suites North in Rochester. That’s close to Joe & Mary’s house, and it’s easy for someone to pick you up.


The group has a room block at the Towne Place Suites.

Here’s the address if you want to drop it into a navigation app:

601 2nd St. SW
Rochester, MN 55901

Check in Friday June 16th anytime after 3pm. Check out time will be Sunday June 18th anytime before 12:00pm. (We can ask for a late checkout if you need it since I am a Bonvoy member).

Informal Gathering Friday evening

Just to give us all a chance to spend more time together, we will have an information gathering at Joe & Mary’s house on Friday evening.

So far, the plan is to order out or grill or something.

The address is:
6426 16th Ave NW
Rochester, MN 55901

Lunch on Saturday – 1 pm

We are planning to gather at a Chinese restaurant in Rochester called Hunan Garden. This is a small restaurant with limited resources, and they have asked that we place our orders in advance so that they can plan ahead to ensure that all of our dishes are delivered at the same time.

We have ordered a few dishes that need to be prepared far in advance, but hope that you will help us design a meal that you will enjoy by choosing a dish from their menu in advance as well. Please email me your selections directly, and I’ll compile them.

The address for Hunan Garden is:

1120 7th Street Northwest,
Rochester MN 55901-1324
