Opening ceremony featured color guard members from Minute Man National Historic Park Rangers
Hello and welcome to another beautiful July morning. Some of our Park Rangers have been gracing another historical park besides the Minute Man National Historical Park. If you tuned into the July 19 Red Sox game versus my dad’s team, the Chicago White Sox, you’d have seen a very special opening ceremony featuring a color guard made up of our Park Rangers.

Truck Day was last Saturday – that’s the day the equipment trucks leave Fenway Park for spring training in Florida – and meteorologists consider March 1 to be the beginning of spring. So we’ve almost made it through winter! Yes, I know it’s been amazingly mild, but still, I’m always happy to welcome that next season. For those of you with children in the public school system, next week is a vacation week. Meaning, of course, a vacation for the kids, not necessarily the parents. And if you’re not planning to head out of town, either to hit the slopes or bask in the sun, you might be looking for a few ways to keep those kids occupied, even…
