Travel slate full for the summer

Published 5:00 pm Saturday, June 25, 2011

The first days of summer have arrived, and our calendars all filling up with fun and special events.

As events fill up we try to keep in touch with you a couple times a month to let you know what’s happening and where our travels are taking us next in an effort to make sure more of you can join us.

We have two more trips to see our Minnesota Twins play this season. The first is Wednesday when the Twins take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 12:10 p.m. matinee. Our next game will be Aug. 25 when the Twins play the Baltimore Orioles for another 12:10 p.m. matinee. We will depart both days at 9 a.m.
