Thanks to all of our members and guests for making our Open House a huge success!

Thank you to all our members and friends, we enjoyed your visit and the chance to thank you in person.

We had a great reason to celebrate! Minnesota Public Radio reached a major milestone in the organization's history - surpassing more than 100,000 active members. That figure is second only to one other radio station in the country. We are humbled by their voluntary financial support, which is our organization's most important funding source. On Sunday, May 23, 2010 we invited members to Minnesota Public Radio's studios in Bemidji, Duluth, Rochester, and St. Paul in order to welcome, connect with and thank each guest warmly and personally for their unparalleled commitment and generosity.
