Welcome to the VIP Club

VIP Club members' personal friendships started during our heritage company working days then continued as we've transitioned into retirement or other work.  *Join us!  As of April '20 we have 709 active memberships - 83% in Minnesota and 17% in 41 other states plus one each in Canada and Greece.
