COME ABOARD! St. Paul Rotary is taking a lunch cruise on the Mighty Mississippi River Tuesday,  aboard the authentic sternwheeler Jonathan Padelford.

Our speaker is Lee Nelson, president of Upper River Services, the barge company that handles virtually all marine work in St Paul.  He will speak about the commercial value of the Mississippi River to St Paul, MN, the US and the world. 

The Boat will stay at the dock until 12:30 p.m. to accommodate late arrivals and it will return at 1 p.m.  There is FREE PARKING at the Padelford Landing in Harriet Island Park, just across the Wabasha St. Bridge.  Capt. Jim says there will be a dozen DOOR PRIZES. And, of course, there will be a full CASH BAR to complement lunch.  This is a regular Rotary meeting so there is NO ADDED CHARGE FOR LUNCH.

Pre-registration is not required. Guests are welcome. IT IS GOING TO BE GREAT FUN.
