Hudson Mills Metro Parks Trip  -  FULL !!

When: Tuesday, August 1

     Last year we offered at the last minute a free trip to the Metro Parks put on by the Metro Parks. Well, this year they have decided to do it again since it was such a big hit. This year the trip will be on Tuesday, August 1. I don't have times yet but last year it was around 9:00 am through 3:00 pm or so. Once I have more definite information I will share it in the newsletter but I wanted to make sure everyone has a chance to get in on the trip. We have reserved 25 seats and again, this is a free trip that includes refreshments and lunch. Last year everyone had such a wonderful time so my guess is y'all will again this year!! I have waiver forms in the office that need to be filled out and brought with you on the bus; you will receive one when you sign up for the trip. Any questions, just ask in the office !! And enjoy!!
