Travels & Trips  October 2019


Travel/Trip Policy Changes

Just a reminder to re-read the Travel/ Trip Policy that is just past the Travel pages …………….we’ve made some changes you need to be aware of.  They are not major-major but they reflect changes we’ve had to make due to some unforeseen circumstances that have arisen.  The changes pertain to all of the trips so please read up  on the changes! 

**Heads up Everyone!!  Beginning in 2019 everyone who goes on one of our trips will be required to park away from the Senior Center.  We are now going to be parking in Manly Bennett Park East in the baseball parking area.  There is a map below so you can where exactly you will need to park.  The parking in the lot is so full when we go on our trips that we need to make room for the folks utilizing the Senior Center while we are on the trips.**

There are a few trips that are FULL already!  YAY!!  But BOO if you forgot to sign up!!  Always remember to put yourself on the waiting list!  I go to it on a regular basis and have been able to get folks signed up as there are always cancellations in the few days before a trip flies!!  Just sayin.........................

Also, the surest way for me to put you on a trip is to put a deposit down on the trip whether it  be a day trip or an overnighter.  This way I at least know you're serious about the trip.  Thanks for your understanding!!
