Minneapolis, MN Alumni Picnic

 

Greetings Minneapolis Area Alumni!
We look forward to seeing you at our next alumni gathering! We will meet on Monday, August 14th, from 6:30-8:00pm at a SPECIAL LOCATION this month. Join us at the Maple Grove Central Park Garden & Labyrinth. The park is located at 12000 Central Park Way, Maple Grove, MN 55369. There is a parking lot along Central Park Way or you can park over near Kirkwood Lane you’ll be right next to the Garden and Labyrinth (near 8019 Kirkwood Ln N, Maple Grove, MN 55369).
We are planning to meet at 6:30 at the Labyrinth and have a summer picnic on the lawn then together walk the Labyrinth. Feel free to bring along some blankets and recreation equipment if you would like.

There isn’t any place to grill so each person will bring along their own main meal and a dish to share.

The group will be peer led by Onsite Alumni Derrick Strom and Tyler Reitzner. Derrick and Tyler launched this meeting at the beginning of the year and have already built a wonderful network of alumni.
We hope you will join us for an evening of community and connection.
Onsite alumni groups are an opportunity to reconnect and serve as a refresher to the experiences we have been so fortunate to have together. Anyone who has attended an Onsite program is welcome. If you wish to contact Derrick or Tyler before the event, you may do so here: derrickstrom@gmail.com and reitznert@yahoo.com.
Meet Derrick
Derrick attended Milestones at Onsite in July and August of 2015 and continues on a journey of finding peace, wholeness and self-discovery. While at Milestones, he had the opportunity to experience what a supportive, safe community of others who share similar life experiences can be and do in his life. When asked why he was interested in helping start an alumni group in the Twin Cities he said, “It is my desire to see this type of community develop here because I don’t think I’m the only one who needs it.”

Meet Tyler
Tyler Reitzner is an Onsite workshop alum and is in his own long-term recovery from PTSD and Substance Use Disorder. Tyler is passionate about strong recovery and helping people thrive in life. Tyler has personally experienced first-hand how effective treatment and supportive recovery services can be in healing relationships. Tyler is the father of two sons and for him, recovery always goes back to the relationships with his kids. He believes if the family is healthy, then the kids are healthy. Healthy kids are where Tyler’s heart is—his own and those of any family affected by behavioral health issues. Tyler’s hope is that by partnering with Onsite to create a safe space for people to process and heal it will also create better relationships between the people involved and their families.
