Marathon to hold open house next Saturday

Everyone is invited for free hot dogs, sandwiches and bus tours of the refinery. There will be inflatables for children and emergency response vehicles to inspect. Members of the Minnesota Viking cheerleaders squad will be on-site to sign autographs. Visitors can take a chance on raffle prizes, including two $100 gasoline cards, while inside they can learn more about the company's community involvement, safety, inspection and environmental programs and new projects.

The refinery is located at 301 St. Paul Park Road, St. Paul Park. From Highway 61, take the Summit Avenue/70th Street exit to the west toward Summit Avenue, turn right at St. Paul Park Road and follow it around to the right.
