Fall into a New Mantra of Connectivity!
If you missed our Cencup Community Connections September enewsletter, be sure to check that out first to get current updates.

We had great summer! It was full of exciting social outings and adventures, including lawn bowling, the paddletap, a dinner boat cruise and kayaking to name a few. If your summer was just too busy to join us, there's always this fall. Plus anyone new to Cencup who creates a profile gets 10% off their first event!

We invite you to check out the event highlights below and be sure to note the early registration specials. And as a reminder for your calendar, we do our best to schedule events on the 2nd and 4th weekend of each month so you can plan accordingly!

Announcing Our Fall Line-Up of Events!

Group Bike Experience on Root River Scenic Trail 
Saturday September 26, 10:00am – 3:00pm 

Before winter sets in, enjoy a beautiful scenic bike ride along the Root River State Trail that meanders through the scenic Southeastern Minnesota amid 300-foot bluffs and along the peaceful Root River. We will start in beautiful Lanesboro, MN and take breaks as needed along the 15 mile ride to Peterson, MN. We will enjoy lunch at Burdey’s Café, a locally owned restaurant where they believe it’s not the end, only the beginning.


Private Wine Tour / Tasting
Saturday October 11,
3:00pm  - 6:00pm

Enjoy a relaxing afternoon via an exclusive wine tasting experience while exploring a local vineyard. Parley Lake was recently awarded double gold in cold climates, plus 10 other gold medals, winning more golds this year than ever before. In addition they are recognized as one of the top 10 apple Orchards in the nation! However, there is no need to be a wine connoisseur to fully appreciate these wines.

Join Cencup on a tour led by the owner who will share in the art of wine making along four stops including a magnificent art sculpture garden. Upon arriving, we will start our private tour, learn the hard work of vineyard management and the secrets of wine-making with four tastings along the way.  We will end our tour at a private picnic area where we will enjoy a causal picnic, food, drinks, bonfire, and music from the local band Kingsview. This experience is sure to be one of your more relaxing, memorable wine tour experiences. By arranging the exclusivity, we have taken out the hassle that can come with the crowded wineries during this time of the year. Four cheers to that! 


Chick Outdoor Movie & Social
Friday October 16,
6:00pm – 10:00pm

The kids are back to school, the college students have flown the nest, and the house is just a little quieter. It's time for Chick Night! Join us for a fun casual women’s social gathering offering an outdoor chick movie, lawn games, bonfire, mini wine tasting, appetizers and just good ole fashion fun socializing with some great women. For this event both single and married women are welcome to come, so bring your girlfriends!  


Murder Mystery Dinner Gangster / Flapper Style
Saturday October 24th, 6:00pm – 10:00pm

It's a fun, interactive three-hour Murder Mystery experience during a served plated dinner. In this Murder Mystery experience, not only will you dress the part as either a gangster for the men or flapper style for the women, you will also participate in solving the crime.

Clues will be provided throughout the evening leading to a solution and guests will have an opportunity to quiz characters and interact with each other through ice breakers.
 Prizes will be award to those who solve the crime first.  So break out your gangster and flapper style and register by October 1st to get the early bird special of $139 per couple.

Horse Racing at Canterbury Park
September 11, 6:30 - 9:00p.m.


Live horse racing is at its finest with VIP tables sponsored by Nite Trane transportation. With reserved tables right on the glass and excellent viewing of the racing, there will be plenty of opportunity to see your favorite horse run.  We will begin the evening with a round of appetizers and learn some tips and techniques from a horse owner on racing. Then... the fun begins! Throughout the evening there will be several races and in between the races we have interactive social activities planned. And if your lucky horse wins, there will be photo opportunities with the winning horse!

What's Your Purpose?
The number one factor in happiness, dealing with depression, life stressors, positive well being, and fulfilling one of our most basic psychological needs is to relate and connect with others!  According to Richard Lieder, author of Life Reimagined, a sense of community is essential to living and identifying ones purpose.
