September 28, 2023 - Health Care Directives
Presentation - Join us for refreshments
and hear from a speaker from the Senior Linkage Line
on Health Care Directives. We will be having a drawing
for a door prize as well. Tours and Facility
information will be offered after presentation.
4:00pm - 5:00pm at the
Homestead at Coon Rapids, 11372 Robinson Dr NW,
Coon Rapids. RSVP to Yvonne Cariveau at
612-289-9520. Having a health care directive
in place lets you make informed decisions now about
the type of health care you want to receive in the
future. A health care directive is a written document
in which you name someone (your health care agent) to
make health care decisions for you, if you become
unable to make or communicate decisions for yourself.
As an adult, you have the right to make decisions
about your own health care. That right does not end
when you are not able to make decisions for yourself.
If something happens to you, your health care agent
can carry out your health care preferences.

JazzMN Orchestra in Concert with: Grammy
Award-Winning Trumpet Legend, RANDY BRECKER -
JazzMN is excited to collaborate once again with
trumpeter and composer Randy Brecker, who has helped
shape the sound of jazz, R&B and rock for more than
four decades. His trumpet and flugelhorn performances
have graced hundreds of albums by a wide range of
artists from James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen and
Parliament/Funkadelic to Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan,
and Frank Zappa. Born in 1945 to a musical family,
Randy’s talent was nurtured from an early age. He
attended Indiana University studying with Bill Adam,
David Baker and Jerry Coker and later moved to New
Your where he landed gigs with prominent bands
including Clark Terry’s Big Bad Band, the Duke Pearson
Big Band and the Thad Jones Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra.
In ’67 he ventured into the jazz rock genre with the
band, Blood, Sweat and Tears. In the early 70s he
performed live with many prominent artists including
Larry Coryell’s Eleventh House, Stevie Wonder and
Billy Cobham. By 1975, he and his brother Michael
formed their own group, the ‘Brecker Brothers Band.’ A
band of immeasurable impact, they recorded six albums
on Arista garnering seven Grammy nominations. He later
went on to receive numerous Grammy Awards. As a
performer, composer and in-demand clinician, Brecker
continues to influence and inspire young musicians
around the world.
