MINIUSA hangout 11/23

 

WRAPUP: WOW!!  MINIUSA pulled out all the stops for a fantastic evening.  We had a mingle time with food, drinks, fruit and cheese, and fabulous deserts in the main reception area  followed by a short talk by MINI execs.  We were then shown a preview of a new Countryman commercial, and an unveiling of the car.  We were able to get up close and personal with the new Countryman and everyone got MINI framed photographs.  We even got a nice little MINI goody bag at the end of the evening.  Huge thanks to Broderick and Michelle and the rest of the MINI and BMW crew for treating our club to such a wonderfull evening.
