To ensure there are no hassles at customs before leaving for Minot, here are a few tips: • Remember to bring proper identification. Make sure everyone travelling with you has proper documentation for leaving Canada. Birth certificates, passports and visas are the best insurance against problems at the border. • Visit a Canada Customs office to identify any valuables you may want to take to Minot from home. Items like cameras, jewelry and palm pilots can be recorded so that there are no problems coming back across the border. • Also, remember to check with Canada Customs if you plan to change or improve any part of your vehicle. If your vehicle breaks down while in Minot, the repairs must be declared at customs and you may not have to pay the duties. But if you improve your vehicle with special modifications (in other words, increase its value) Canada Customs law will no longer consider the vehicle Canadian. For further information, or to request a free visitors packet including coupons, lists of restaurants, things to see and do and where to stay, contact Minot Convention and Visitors Bureau at 1-800-264-2626 or visit the website at www.visitminot.org.

July 18 to 23 MSU Summer Theater: Big River MSU Amphitheater The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is a musical about musicals!

June is an ingenue who can’t pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will

the handsome leading man come to the rescue? The variations are: a Rodgers & Hammerstein version, set in Kansas in August, complete with a dream ballet; a Sondheim version, featuring the landlord as a tortured artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge for not appreciating his work; a Jerry Herman version, as a splashy star vehicle; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago. The Musical of Musicals: The Musical is produced through special arrangement with Samuel French. All performances begin at 8:30 pm. Tickets: $8 Adults $7 Students & Seniors $5 12 and Under $3 MSU Faculty, Staff, Summer Students. For reservations call 858-3228 after June 1, 2014 Continued on Page 15

MINOT’S A REAL TRIP!

We’re ready for you.

Roosevelt Park Zoo prepares to open for 2014 season By Jessica Mees L-P Specialty Products The staff and crew at the Roosevelt Park Zoo are preparing to stun visitors with changes and additions to the beloved favourite attraction. The zoo, which opened in 1920, has been a token family outing hotspot each summer. “We’re going to have another summer with construction on site due to the flood of 2011, but as opposed to where we were last year, it is a significant change. At this point last year, we had about ten animals back and now this year we have almost all of them here,” said David Merritt. Also expected by the end of the zoo season are some new editions. One of these new animals expected by the end of the season is a Japanese Mountain goat called a Serow. Unique from other goats, the Serow looks more like a wolf when seen head on. They are also just as feisty as other goats, with quite the

personalities. Another addition this summer is the return of the Bongo. Although they are behind in receiving the Bongo, it is for good reason. One of the Bongos travelling in the same shipment got pregnant and was unable to travel. The Roosevelt Park Zoo Bongos will be back before the season end for all to see. The word of new animals is always exciting, but for Merritt the most exciting thing in the zoo’s future is a brand new exhibit. “We have a new exhibit under construction at the moment. It is all very exciting. The original zoo building is a marvellous building that was built when the zoo opened. It has significant historic value to people who have been in Minot all their lives. It was the entire zoo for several decades,” said Merritt. “It was very beat up from the flood so we decided it needed a reuse and to be seen again. We decided we are going to open up an aviary inside. It is the perfect building

for that. There will be many new colours, movements and sounds when it is completed.” Of course, another exciting addition is the return of the summer reading program. Unable to hold the program for the last few years, the team has had even more time to prepare and get excite for the summer of 2014. Children are invited in to the Zoo to hear a story and have an opportunity for a “hands on” interaction with some of the chosen animal ambassadors. Admission to this event is $2 for members and $3 for non-members. The schedule can be found online. Purchasing a Zoo membership has great benefits. In addition to getting in free to the ever-changing zoo all season, members also get discounts on events, zoo camp, and a 10% discount in our gift shop. What many don’t know is that the pass can also get the member into many other zoos in the United States for free or half off.

For more information on the Roosevelt Park Zoo and this season’s events and adventures, visit www.rpzoo.com. New and exciting things are happening each day.
