Excited for summer - now offering bus trips - sign up today

The short summer of Duluth is just about here.   This summer I'm starting up a bus excursion business.  Start in Duluth and we'll head to Bayfield, the Iron Range, Hayward, Renaissance Festival, St. Cloud gardens, and more.  Each trip has a nature, art/music, or history connection.  Check the calendar at www.wendyupnorth.com/excursions for more information.  Please sign up at least 2 weeks prior to the trip.  There will be two trips per month in the summer and early fall.

July 14 and July 28 are the first trips.

Also, Woman-Made local art & gift fair will be July 30 (not July 23) at Duluth Congregational Church, 3833 E. Superior St.  Shop from 10AM through 4PM.  Meet the artists and you'll have a special time picking out great gifts.

And - the June/July issue of the Look at Lakeside newsletter is published.  Go to www.LookAtLakeside.com.
