A note from the president
Before we head out for the long weekend, we have a few fun things to share. I also want to quickly remind you to follow us on your favorite social media channels and share with us your great experiences in downtown.
First, the Saints are hosting the Welcome Back Downtown Weekend Block Party starting tomorrow. Events will extend beyond the confines of CHS Field, down 6th Street to Mears Park. There will be bands, food trucks and fireworks after each game this weekend, with a super special show planned for Sunday evening. You don't need a ticket to the game to enjoy the block party, but if you want to see top Twins prospect Jose Miranda play before he heads across the river, make sure to get tickets sooner rather than later. Speaking of, there was a great writeup in the Business Journal this week about the Saints’ new Twins affiliation and the positive impact it's having on their bottom line.
Finally, our friends at Goff Public returned to their offices downtown (and made a pitstop along the way) today, and to mark the occasion their COO Jennifer Hellman shared her thoughts about coming back downtown, the future of hybrid working and more. It's a great read and a reminder of the benefits of collaborating in person. Thank you to Jennifer
, and to the entire team at Goff for your partnership and investment in downtown!

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July!
