Senior Softball –Registration is now open for senior softball in Cannon Falls. This is softball for seniors 60 and over with games played once a week during the summer. The Cannon Falls Boomers play in the Southern Minny League and compete against other senior teams from Faribault, Northfield and Owatonna. If anyone is interested in playing this summer, contact head coach John Hobert at 507-263-3693.
Twins Game – We will once again make a trip up to Target Field to watch the Minnesota Twins take on the Houston Astros on Wednesday, May 31st. The game gets underway at 12:10 p.m. and the deluxe, motor coach bus will depart from the Cannon Falls city parking lot at 10 a.m. We’ll once again be sitting in the “Great Clips Section” and are great seats! The cost to take in the game is $60, which includes a ticket to the game, a $10 voucher good at concession stands and of course transportation to and from the Target Field. We have a limited number of tickets available so you’re urged to sign up soon if you’d like to attend.
Chanhassen Dinner Theater – Shepherd’s Center is planning another outing to the Chanhassen Dinner Theater. The group will take in the show “Grease” on October 25th for a matinee performance. The cost is $85, which includes the show, dinner and transportation. Those wanting to attend should RSVP by contacting Shepherd’s Center at 507-263-2136.
Colorado Trip – We are also planning a trip to Colorado September 10th thru the 16th. We’ll have more details soon on this exciting outing.
Memorials– I want to thank everyone who has helped out Shepherd’s Center with donations. As I’ve mentioned many times, it’s because of the local support that we have been able to continue our programs and services for the past 21 years. This past month, we received donations in memory of Ron Rechtzigel, Pastor Chuck Jacobson, Clair Johannsen, Glenn Aronson, Shirley Foss and Carl Benson.
I had the opportunity a couple of weeks ago to see the legendary Kris Kristofferson in concert. He’s 80 years old now, but put on a great show. I leave you this month with this; “Tell the truth. Sing with passion. Work with laughter. Love with heart. ‘Cause that’s all that matters in the end.” – Kris Kristofferson. Remember the concert Friday night, it’s going to be a dandy and we hope to see you there!
