Teddy Roosevelt in Town April 26 at Healthy Seniors

April 26, 2018 - April 26, 2018

Enjoy an hour with President Teddy Roosevelt as he regales us with his favorite stories and insights at Longfellow/Seward Healthy Seniors 20th Annual Italian Dinner. The dinner and silent auction is Thursday, April 26 at St. Albert the Great Church, which is on the corner of E. 29th Street and 32nd Ave. S. in Minneapolis. A used book sale will also be part of this year’s event.

Called the “Father of Conservation” and one of America’s finest leaders, Teddy Roosevelt was a true force of nature. During his administration, five new national parks were created, as well as 18 national monuments, four national game refuges and 51 bird sanctuaries.

It was said of Roosevelt, “After you met him, you needed to wring the personality out of your clothes!” Roosevelt is portrayed by three-time national champion living historian Adam Lindquist, who brings Roosevelt to life for audiences across the country. Don’t miss his performance, “Teddy Roosevelt: A Portrait of a Well-Lived Life.”

Proceeds from the event help provide community nursing, volunteer services and health promotional activities to local seniors so they can live independently at home. The reception and silent auction begins at 5:30 pm and the dinner and performance is from 6:00 – 8:30 pm. The dinner features an Italian menu and gluten-free/vegetarian options are available. Tickets are $35 per person and reservations should be made by April 23. Call Longfellow/Seward Healthy Seniors at 612-729-5799 or email them at info@LShealthyseniors.org to make reservations.
