MSTG Summer Picnic

  • Ellen Saul & Associates 14781 Bagley Avenue Faribault, MN, 55021 United States (map)

Minnesota Sandplay Therapy Group (MSTG) invites you to the Summer Picnic! Bring your family and please bring a friend who might be interested – let’s get the word out about Sandplay! There are several parts to this event and we would love to have you take part in all of it – it’s a great way to get to know Sandplay people! We’ll have outdoor games and water play if there are kids or grandkids who would enjoy that. We’d love to welcome as well your friends who would like to get more acquainted with Sandplay!  The Labyrinth will be open to walk, also the trails in the woods and the prairie.  Plus, there will be tomatoes to share! Let us know!


At 10:30am the MSTG Board will meet. Munchies available so you won’t get too hungry! All are welcome – come see how MSTG works.

About 12:30pm we will picnic!  You are invited to bring a dish to pass.  Hamburgers, hotdogs/brats and veggie burgers provided.

After food, Lynn Overvoorde will give us a visual “Taste of Tanzania” after living there for over 5 months in the past year.

Date:  Saturday, July 30, 2016, from 10am through the afternoon until you’re ready to leave!

Place:  14781 Bagley Avenue, Faribault, MN 55021 (John Besse and Ellen Saul’s place – Ruf Acres II).  Call us at 507-334-9117 if you need some help with directions (or our cell phones Ellen 507-319-8457 or John 507-319-8461).

Directions: (We’ll have a sign at the end of the driveway).

From the north: take I-35 south, and exit at mile 69 for Northfield and Co Rd. 19, or take Exit 66.  Turn right at the end of the ramp, and take the first left onto Bagley Ave.  Go south 6.9 miles from Exit 69, or 3.9 miles from Exit 66 and we are on the left.  The mailbox says “Ellen Saul & Assoc.” and “14781”.  We’ll have a sign out to welcome everyone.  If you miss the turn off I-35, continue south to exit 59, turn left on Co. Rd. 21 and take the second right onto Bagley Ave./Co. 46. Go 3 miles, cross Co. Rd. 9, and we are the second mailbox on the right.  See you there!  The big visual landmark is the greenhouse (for growing tomatoes, not a green house), which sits just south of our driveway.  The ends are painted red, like our house.

From the south:  take I-35 north, and exit at the third Faribault exit, mile 59.  Turn left at the end of the ramp onto Co. 21 going west.  Go about a half mile and take the second right onto Co. 46, which is also Bagley Avenue.  Go 3 miles, cross Co. Rd. 9, then turn in at the second mailbox (14781, Ellen Saul & Assoc.) on the right, immediately after the greenhouse full of tomatoes.  We’ll have a sign out to welcome you.  If you miss the turn off from I-35, continue to Exit 66, turn left on Co. Rd. 1, and take the next left past I-35 at the roundabout onto Bagley Ave.  Go 3.9 miles south.  We are on the left, just before Co. Rd. 9.  Welcome! 

An RSVP to would be great, and if you can get back to me by July 23rd with who all is coming, even better, so we can plan for the numbers for food.

See you in July – warmly, Ellen & John
