“Last year the first Woosley Tours arrived in Vinton for a noon time meal event and it was, indeed, very successful. So much so, that they are returning on September 27, for a second dining/meeting/entertainment experience” said Frank Kruse, Event Coordinator

Lavanda Woosley operates a touring company out of Cedar Rapids and says of her business, “I schedule trips when I want to go, where I want to go and then see who wants to come along!” She chose to tour Vinton’s historic Rock Island Depot complete with tour guide Reverend Phil , Vinton’s noted railroad historian and scholar.

On their first visit to Vinton, the group toured the Benton County Courthouse.

When you see the group around town, be sure to give them a welcoming smile to Vinton!
