Notes From Our Most Recent Meeting
Andy Mooney, Red Bench Bakery
Andy Haugen introduced Andy Mooney, the creator and leader of Red Bench Bakery. With Chaska and Excelsior benefitting from his extensive training and culinary experience, we learned about Andy Mooney’s Air Force travels (only in Mississippi), how he came up with the bakery name, and his philosophy in training his bakery team. The Red Bench has been active in community support in both cities and his planned cocktail bar (with appetizers) will hopefully bring more business activity to our city center. Andy is working on developing a low-cost, high-nutrition bread loaf as part of his community commitment. He ended his presentation with an anecdote about his unique cinnamon roll, which has earned the praise of many (including this writer, as soon as our meeting ended.)

New Generations
In support of the New Generations Program, Greg and Cindy Anderson are now hosting our visitor from South Korea - Aimee Choi (Amy). She is a 2022 graduate of Ewha Woman’s University in Seoul, with a degree in Climate and Energy Systems Engineering. She was employed by Pricewaterhouse Coopers in Korea for the past two years as an ESG consultant. ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. It's what companies and investors look at to see how a company impacts the planet, society, and its own management. 'Environmental' covers things like climate change and resource use, 'Social' looks at issues like labor conditions and diversity, and 'Governance' focuses on things like ethical behavior and transparency in how a company is run. In her few weeks here, she has been to Minneopa State Park and seen bison, driven a tractor, experienced fencing, and seen the spoon and cherry at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden..
