State Capitol/Cherokee Tavern/Fort Snelling National Cemetery Tour

Tuesday, June 11
    The State Capitol renovation is beautiful, the buffet lunch is great, and the highlight just may be the tour of Fort Snelling National Cemetery. I am held in awe each time we return. Experience the grandeur of the People’s House. The State of Minnesota has completed a $310-million project to preserve our 1905 State Capitol - including the restoration of its extensive and amazing artwork. A wonderful included bbq rib and baked ham buffet lunch at the Cherokee Tavern follows our capitol tour. Our final stop is also the final stop for many of our honored veterans and their spouses. Fort Snelling National Cemetery was established on July 14, 1939. The cemetery serves over 1.4 million veterans in the 5-state area. Over 4,900 burials are conducted each year, and Fort Snelling National Cemetery is the 4th busiest and 10th largest cemetery in the National Cemetery Administration. We’ll be treated to a fully guided drive-through tour and will get to see many of the day-to-day activities that take place there. You will be amazed!

Jim Stafford  
Tuesday, June 18
    Begin with an included buffet lunch at the Coyote Moon Grille and then head for the St. Cloud Paramount Theatre for Jim Stafford. Best known for his humorous country novelty songs of the mid-'70s, multi-instrumentalist Jim Stafford also enjoyed a lengthy career as a television personality and live entertainer. Stafford was born in 1944 in Florida and learned guitar from his father. “The Swamp Witch” scraped the bottom of the Top 40 in 1973, but it was the following year's "Spiders and Snakes" - a song co-written with David Bellamy of the Bellamy Brothers - that brought Stafford into the big time. The song peaked at number three on the pop charts, went gold, and helped make Stafford a household name. His sense of humor was also showcased on the follow-up hits "My Girl Bill" and "Wildwood Weed," the latter another Top Ten pop hit, and he charted in the Top 40 again in 1975 with "Your Bulldog Drinks Champagne" and "I Got Stoned and I Missed It.”

Skyrock Farm - It’s for ALL Ages
Wednesday, June 19
    If you’ve ever visited House on the Rock, Circus World or a carnival or circus, enjoyed a great meal, or have a love for horses (and jumping), plus a mini-train ride around the grounds, this tour is for ALL AGES! Think of the “Happiest Music on Earth” you hear on merry-go-rounds or at the circus as ornate guilded organs are demonstrated. How the music is “punched” on cardboard is really fascinating. A wonderful included buffet lunch will follow. Then we’ll head to the horse barn for a really fun and informative horse jumping demonstration. Following the show, you’ll have time to check things out further on your own and perhaps go for a mini-train ride around the grounds. Ask anyone who joined me in 2018. People of all ages will enjoy this one!

Historic Chippewa City & Fagen Fighters WWII Museum Tour
Wednesday, June 26
    This tour really is THAT GOOD! I highly recommend it as a special day to bring kids and grandkids. We’ll begin with Historic Chippewa City, home to 24 buildings replicating a late 1800’s village, complete with town square and boardwalk as well as a centrally located bandstand/gazebo. Some of the buildings inspired artist Terry Redlin. Before we leave, we’ll enjoy an included picnic lunch. Then we’ll depart for the Fagen Fighters WWII Museum, a living memorial to one of the most critical times in our nation’s history. Fagen Fighters WWII Museum is a showcase of fully operational iconic aircraft and ground equipment used in that epic conflict. Most importantly, it is a tribute to the men and women whose incredible sacrifices during that time shaped the freedom and liberty we enjoy today. This museum is awesome! As we leave Granite Falls, we’ll stop for refreshments at the Dairy Queen before departing.

"Obviously, This Ain’t Iowa Mystery"
Tuesday, July 23
    Our destination is by request… with a discount price for kids. I’ll drop a few hints along the way. First, we’ll pick up a guide so I can relax. I’ll be stressed. Coffee and rolls will be included somewhere along the line. We’ll take a guided tour of a place we’ve all heard of. Many of you may have family members who have spent time there. It’s not a prison, but you must have your ID with you… driver’s license is best choice… no excuses. Kids, you’re okay unless you’re a felon. Hints: Did you know that Jesse Ventura nicknamed Gene Okerlund “Mean Gene”? How many of you have “hideaway homes”? No famous actresses ever lived in Lester Prairie, but I know of a “Hall of Fame” concertina player who resides there. I digress. Hungry? Hint: Perhaps we’ll find some roadkill along the way to an included catered lunch. Then we’ll explore an extraordinary museum. This will be no “fly by night” experience! Our final stop will be a guided visit which may seem like a family rebellion for some in our group. This tour is absolutely recommended for all ages. You know you can trust me!

As a song writer in the mid 60s, he penned songs recorded by everyone from Elvis Presley to Deep Purple and, of course, the Monkees’ classic, “I’m A Believer.” Tommy Vee states, “It is all about the vocals and Matt nails it.” Joining The Killer Vees will be Matt’s wife Julie Velline on vocals, veteran Minnesota musicians Mark Levandowski, Kurt Rodman, Boyd Lee, Dennis Kennedy and Dr. Frank Plachecki, as well as a very special surprise for the finale.

"The Outsider"
Saturday, September 14
    We’re going to the St. Croix Off Broadway Theatre at the Hudson House where we’ll begin with an included dinner. Then it’s time for The Outsider. Ned Newley doesn't even want to be governor. He's terrified of public speaking, and his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for... the worst candidate to ever run for office. The Outsider is a timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy.

“Five Presidents”
Wednesday, September 25
     After lunch on your own at Maynard’s, we’re on our way to the Old Log Theater for Five Presidents. Former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Regan, and George H. W. Bush joined the incumbent president, Bill Clinton, at the 1994 funeral of former president Richard Nixon in Yorba Linda, California. It had been more than twenty years since the world’s most exclusive “Presidents” club had lost a member through death. Five Presidents is an 85-minute imagining of what they might have chatted about while gathered prior to the services to begin. Maybe some soul searching among great men so rarely together, or would these leaders of the free world prefer banter, small talk, jokes or petty bickering? Author Rick Cleveland, who has written for THE WEST WING and HOUSE OF CARDS, demonstrates that he can make government leaders engaging on stage as well.

They allow him to stay on the couch in their living room, and the results are such that you'll laugh yourself silly. It's like Dean Martin meets LaVerne and Shirley.

After the imperious ruling Lord dismisses Monty’s claim of being a relative, the eight D’Ysquiths ahead of young Mr. Navarro begin dying in natural and unnatural ways.
