Celebrating 40 years of Irish Genealogy!
Sunday, November 17
Celebrating 40 years of Irish Genealogy!  (Social)
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Minnesota Genealogy Center, 1385 Mendota Heights Road, Mendota Heights, Minnesota
Come to the Minnesota genealogy center on Sunday afternoon, November 17, and celebrate IGSI’s 40 years as a genealogy society.  We’ll start the event about 1 PM.  We’ll have cake and treats; some social time; sharing a bit of history and future plans for the organization; and receive some wisdom and inspiration from our guest speaker.
Patrick Mosher is an author, speaker, advisor, consultant, coach, mentor, teacher, husband, father and granddaddy.  After retiring from his 28 year consulting career as partner at Accenture, his new mission is Wisdom 4 Humanity – sharing wisdom to enrich the human experience. Most recently, he conducted his Annual Wisdom Council in Glendalough, Ireland. Patrick has delivered a TedX talk and is a keynote speaker to international audiences! 
And of course, he carries his Irish heritage proudly. 
Looking Back for a Hopeful Future                                                                        
We share a proud Irish heritage.  Researching and carefully building our heritage stories is a journey for truth and wisdom.  Why is this important?  By sharing our stories with future generations, we translate and transmit the very core of our family values.  We share wisdom and preserve the ways – ensuring a hopeful future.
