September has arrived and we are already noticing the change in color in our beautiful tree.

On Sept. 14, we will head to Harriet Island in St. Paul and board the Paddleford River Boat.

This four-hour cruise will go through Lock and Dam No. 1, with music as we float down the river and feast on a noon buffet.
