Ripley retirement breakfast is April 24

Camp Ripley will be the site of a semi-annual retirement breakfast and seminar at 8:30 a.m. April 24, starting with pourable coffee and followed by breakfast at 9 a.m.

This event will be held at the “Old Hangar” located near the chapel on the north end of camp.

There is no fee for this seminar, but there is a $6.75 cost for breakfast. This event is billed by organizers as a great get-together, sharing concerns for retired folks of Camp Ripley.

This event should last until about 11 a.m.

Personnel from St Paul will speak on a variety of topics, including Tri-Care Insurance and Retirement Services. Dave Swantek form the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery will give updates and express concerns.

Those who wish to get their applications in at the state cemetery are asked to bring their DD214 (proof of active duty).
