Drive~Riverboat brunch and tour!!!! SUNDAY June 26th


WRAPUP: A fantastic drive and boat cruise!!  A bit of wetness in the start of the drive, but the bad weather soon cleared out. We had a bit of drama at our rest stop with a flat tire to deal with..  Then off to the boat cruise with a great brunch and a ride up and down the river..  Our MINI Club good deed for the trip.. A lady had left her wallet on top of her car at a gas stop, and didnt realize till they got to Wisconsin.  They returned to look at the gas station to see if it fell off the car there,  but couldn’t find it.. Club members Tracy and Jim found the wallet a couple blocks away, and was able to return it to the owners.!!
