July 8, 2015: Today's blog post highlights all the fun events of the mystery trip. The students were THRILLED to be going to a theatrical production. Having made life-lasting friendships, this trip was nothing short of special for everyone.
"Last Saturday, on the 4th of July, our LSM community got up early to attend a flag raising ceremony to celebrate the holiday. After a short breakfast, we loaded up on some buses. After a 3 hour drive, we finally arrived in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We unloaded and ate a quick lunch at Gold Medal Park which is conveniently placed beside the Guthrie Theater, our next destination. We all waited and enjoyed the different attractions in the Guthrie, such as the Yellow Room and the Sky Bridge, before going to the theater and waiting for our production, ‘The Music Man’, to start. The show was absolutely wonderful and we got a chance to talk to the cast in a Q and A session. Shortly after the close of the show, we loaded up on the bus once again. We stopped in Rochester for dinner and once satiated, left for Harmony, Iowa to watch the fireworks and play a couple games of ultimate Frisbee. We got back to Luther College close to 10:30 where we got off the bus a final time and groggily went up to our dorms and enjoyed a great night’s sleep."
Thank you Joseph!
