Plugs

Visiting professor of theatre seeks housing January-June 2019...I'm Matt Trucano, and am joining the theatre and dance faculty for January Interim and second semester. I am moving to Saint Peter from New York with my friendly and quiet senior-dog-citizen, and we need places to rest our heads. I aim to arrive in town on January 3, and will leave on June 1. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Please email me with information.
