Seed Savers Exchange and Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum, Decorah, Iowa  

What a bonus to include two special visits to our neighboring Iowa. We can expect to see Preservation Gardens while wandering through historic orchards. A guide will answer questions as we tour, with time to visit their gift shop for a wide collection of heirloom seeds.

An ethnic meal will be at Ruby’s (Now doesn’t that sound interesting?). The afternoon will be spent at the Vesterheim Museum to explore American folk art. Named as one of the “Nation 10 Greatest” places to visit this collection of Norwegian Heritage.

Departure time will be 7 a.m. and return time will be about 6 p.m.

June 24

“Damn Yankees” musical at the Ordway Theater, St. Paul

The theater will be transformed to give us the flare of summer baseball as we love it. The lobby will host venders and will include stadium-style items and baseball history. We have been given a extension date of May 14 to acquire tickets. We do have a few remaining seats available.

Departure time will be 9 a.m. (always from Walmart parking lot). Coaches do arrive 15-20 minutes early for boarding.
