Looking forward to the summer travel schedule

Published 5:39pm Saturday, June 21, 2014

Summer is here in Minnesota and we are ready to enjoy some of the great destinations in our area.

June 30: At 9 a.m. we will be taking our first of two mystery trips this year. We have planned new destinations — with a few clues — including first time visits to sites with a motor coach. The entire day is included and we will depart from the south end of Walmart parking lot.

July 9: We will be at The Minnesota Centennial Showboat on Harriet Island in St. Paul for the summer production of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (with musical olios.” This comedy is straight from the days of vaudeville. Lunch will be served on the showboat prior to the show. The time to sign up has been extended, so a quick call to one of our travel numbers can still include you.

Departure will be 8 a.m. and we return at 6 p.m.

Our travel numbers are 507-438-3946 and 507-433-9391.

July 30: “The Little Mermaid” at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater.

A musical favorite for all ages. “The Little Mermaid,” is about a beautiful young mermaid named Ariel, who longs to leave her home to live in the world above. It is showcased with beautiful sets, dazzling costumes and an award winning musical score. This trip is also a good way for children to spend a day with a mom or grandparent.

Aug. 19: Annual mystery trip with a new destination and direction planned. Remember, last year we showcased Winona.

Sept. 6 to 11: Our extended fall trip to Door County and Mackinac Island is filling fast. The final payment is due by July 23. A complete schedule is available.

Our Travel hours at the Mower County Senior Center are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday mornings, 9 a.m. to noon

Our mailing address is 1002 16th Street SW Austin, MN, 55912.
