What our visitors say...
" I want to thank you for being a wonderful source of information on who to talk to and where to go when I decided we would all gather in Excelsior. Everyone had a great time! The boat ride on the Minnehaha was delightful; Gary at Joey’s delivered enough food to feed the town, several of us met at Antiquity Rose with author Mary Pulver who writes the needlecraft mysteries set in Excelsior and we wound up at Lord Fletchers Sat night for an excellent meal. The couple who live in our grandmothers home on 2nd Ave were most gracious in letting 50 of us tromp through their home (take your shoes off, please). we could see obvious changes but also saw many things that were familiar; my 86 year old Uncle, dealing with a melanoma on his neck even managed to make the event. As they say “A good time was had by all”
