Ron Kurth’s 26 passenger, air conditioned, limousine style, trolley bus is available for comfortable trips. Owner Ron Kurth, of Elgin, was sure a trolley bus would be a fun way to accommodate the area for weddings, wine tours, parties, beautiful site seeing tours and more.
Ron was owner of Kurth Bus Service in Elgin and Plainview for 32 years. His school buses served the school children of that area and transported about 1,000 children daily. Ron knew the bus business inside and out.
Being no stranger to safe transportation Ron just couldn’t get buses out of his head. Last summer, after observing a trolley bus on Elgin’s Main Street, as light came on. He came up with an idea that wasn’t already furnished in the area, a comfortable trolley bus.
He looked on eBay and placed an incredibility low offer on a trolley bus in Pennsylvania. After flying out and inspecting it, he had it hauled back home. The trolley, on a school bus chassis, was reconstructed at Jim’s Truck and trailer in Winona. Shea Design, of Viola, did the striking graphics. My May it was ready to roll.
Ron is hoping to offer comfortable service within 50 mile radius of Elgin. He requires a 3 hour minimum reservation but gives reduced rates after 3 hours. Transportation includes unlimited miles, pick ups and drop offs. The trolley has built-in ice coolers for beverages, cup holders and a wine rack. There is a state-of-the-art sound system, microphone and 2 CD monitors. Passengers can plug in their smart phone so their own music is available to them. The padded, leather, interior seats face the center aisle to accommodate conversations. Trips are smoke free.
The name, Wapasha Trolley Company, was chosen because Ron wanted to relate to the area. He did some research and couldn’t overlook the name of 7 Chief Wapashas who helped white settlers farm in the beautiful, scenic, fertile area.

The National Eagle Center is one of more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to military personnel and their families this summer in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense.
The National Eagle Center announced the launch of Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel including National Guard and Reserve and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2016. The program also provides families an opportunity to enjoy the nation’s cultural heritage and learn more about their new communities after a military move. The complete list of participating museums is available at arts.gov/bluestarmuseums.
“The bald eagle is our national symbol and holds special meaning for those who serve our nation in the military”, said Rolf Thompson, Executive Director at the National Eagle Center. “We understand that there is incredible value in sharing that symbol with the families of those who serve and we are excited to participate in this program.”
“The Blue Star Museums program is a fun, free activity for military families to enjoy during the summer months,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “The program is also a great way for service member families to connect to their new communities, and it can provide a meaningful way for families to reconnect after deployment. The Blue Star Museums program is also a perfect way for the arts community to say ‘thank you’ to our service members and their families for the sacrifices they make on our behalf, every day.”
“Blue Star Museums has grown into a nationally recognized program that service members and their families look forward to each year,” said Blue Star Families Chief Executive Officer Kathy Roth-Douquet. “It helps bring our local military and civilian communities together, and offers families fun and enriching activities in their home towns. We are thrilled with the continued growth of the program and the unparalleled opportunities it offers.”
This year, more than 2,000 (and counting) museums in all 50 states are taking part in the initiative. This year’s Blue Star Museums represent not just fine arts museums, but also science museums, history museums, nature centers, and dozens of children’s museums.
Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America. The program runs from Memorial Day, May 30, 2016 through Labor Day, September 5, 2016.
The free admission program is available to any bearer of a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), a DD Form 1173 ID card (dependent ID), or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card, which includes active duty U.S. military – Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, as well as members of the National Guard and Reserve, U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps – and up to five family members.
