For clarification... (See Par 1) ... Do you mean they begin on Tuesday June 25th?
BRUCE JOHNSTON February 17, 2013 at 04:06 PM
June 25 is a Tuesday.

Thanks Denese and Bruce. Tuesday, June 25, is correct and has been fixed in the article.

"Skansies'" should have an apostrophe :) Antone, Vince (commonly "Vincie"), and at the end of their days, Peter. All three Skansies were on site just prior to their below-market sale of the property to the city. For all practcal purposes, a gift.
