As summer winds down, the wonderful season of fall is upon us. The changing of colors in Minnesota is always a spectacular experience. We hope our readers enjoyed a safe and happy summer. 

In September we band together behind our Vikings in their quest for a successful season. NFL Sundays are always memorable and a time for families to come together in backing the Purple in their quest for victory.

We would like to thank community members who attended the recent “Cocktails for Causes” event at the Flying Dutchman. The Eden Prairie “Women of Substance” and “Men to Know” was an evening to remember. Thanks to Brandon Thornton, Scott Kaldenberg and Jayne Bauman for their hospitality and donation to the Eden Prairie Community Foundation. Thanks also go out to Mark Weber and the Foundation for the reciprocal donation to the Eden Prairie Chapter of Let’s Go Fishing. And finally, to two great contributors to the evening, Randy Parmley of the Crumb Deli for the delicious food and to Pete Rose, our photographer.  Randy feeds us great food, and Pete always makes us look good.

It is a great honor for all of us at Eden Prairie Lifestyle to partner with the wonderful people who define the Eden Prairie experience. Welcome to fall.

Go Vikings!
