A note from the president
This coming Monday evening, the Minnesota Wild will host 3,000 fans at the Xcel Energy Center. While this is still a far cry from a sold out night at the X, it will be the most fans that the Wild have hosted in more than a year. I join the Wild management, arena staff and players in sending all 3,000 of the fans a hearty hello and welcome back. We are truly so happy to have you.
The language of the Governor's latest executive order allows for workers to begin to return to their offices on a voluntary basis beginning April 15. From what we've been hearing we expect that we will see some of these volunteers in the second half of April, with more returning on a rolling basis. (If you find yourself among the group of early adopters I'll remind you that we've been tracking what's new, what's currently open and where you can grab a bite or beer outside, here.)
These are the types of smaller victories that we've learned to spot amidst the challenges of the past year and will see more and more of in the coming weeks.
With spring break on the horizon for many of us, I'll keep things brief this week before the long weekend. I'm off to hop on the Empire Builder taking off from Union Depot and heading west for the week, an adventure I've been looking forward to trying for years. I'll be sure to report back on how it goes.

Take care and enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend,
