Senior Travel ready for full slate of 2012 tripsPublished 5:30pm Saturday, February 18, 2012
This past week, our yearly Travel Show/Coffee Party once again brought out the tour plans we have set to date.
It is a fun and interesting process to plan different destinations which will fit in with our travelers schedules. We continue to try to appeal to all ages, taking into consideration their interest and needs.
A calendar of 2012 overnight and extended trips including itineraries is available in our travel office and in our message box near the south outside entrance. Members will be receiving a brief schedule in the next monthly newsletter. Calls can be made to our travel numbers: Evie, 507-438-3946 or Doris, 507-433-9391.
