As the days get longer and the sun gets warmer, we’re thinking: SUMMER! 

And planning for Summer 2021 has us doing a little tightrope-walking. We are balancing our strong need for normalcy, togetherness and fun with our other strong need of keep everyone safe! 

Some of you are asking us to predict what things will be like this summer. And, while we can’t quite do that (yet!), we can tell you that we will be following all the Minnesota Department of Health guidelines. Under the current guidelines, we think there is a safe way to open back up most of what you missed last year (think: video arcade, ice cream counter, and activities). If there are any precautions we need to take in order to make that happen (think: masks, screenings, physical distancing, and sanitizing) we are more than happy to take them. 

As we plan for the summer, we would love to hear your thoughts on what worked and what didn’t in 2020.

And THANKS in advance for your opinions. (We really do use them)
