British History

Few have had the opportunity to join an archaeological dig and even fewer of us have been able to join in their successes and failure. This summer you have the opportunity visit three such “digs”. Each dig looking for, and maybe finding, that prized something. There will be a session on a separate dig each month this summer. Register by June 5 by calling 651-403-8300 for the June 12 session, which will run from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. The cost is $8, and this will take place at Thompson Park Activity Center, 1200 Stassen Lane, West St. Paul. 


Nordic Walking

Join Boomers More or Less for a walk at Thompson Park Activity Center, 1200 Stassen Lane, West St. Paul, on May 5. Nordic walking uses 90 percent of your muscles and burns more calories and distributes your weight so your knees don’t have to do all the work. Demo poles are provided. The class is geared to those that can walk 30 to 45 minutes, including small hills. Wear comfortable shoes with good tread; bring water if desired. Poles will be available for purchase after class. The class will run from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. The cost is $30, and you can register by calling 651-403-8313 or 651-403-8300.

Call 952-891-7241 to schedule an appointment, which will run from 1 to 4 p.m., at the West St. Paul Library, 199 Wentworth Ave. E, on June 6.
