“Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow,” will be our theme for this year’s annual Travel Show/Coffee Party at the Mower County Senior Center.

The party will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday when we plan to say goodbye to winter — complete with travel plans for 2014.

Come to the Mower County Senior Center and enjoy hot beverages, refreshments and sign up for drawings. A calendar of upcoming travels will also be available.

Email newsletter signup

There will be sign-up times for those interested in receiving a monthly newsletter from the Senior Center, which includes our travel news.

You do not need to be a member and we encourage all ages to come and explore the Senior Center.

Our café will be offering a couple of delicious home-made soups for $1 and assorted sandwiches for 50 cents, any time after 11:30 a.m. Reservations not needed.

If you have photo albums, or pictures of our past trips, please bring them, as there will be tables to display and reminisce.

Our travelers have returned from Panama and have lots of stories to share. What an experience seeing life as they live it and going through the Panama Canal. We will share with you our entire journey in an upcoming newsletter article.

A few of our upcoming trips include:

•April 10-11: A return trip to the Fireside Dinner Theater for the musical “Mary Poppins.” This theater has a dining room and buffet like no other. The second day will be a home-cooked lunch and entertainment with our Scandinavian Wisconsin friends at the Thunder Valley Inn.

•May 14-15: It’s tulip time. We have made plans to attend the 74th annual Tulip Festival in Orange City, Iowa. We have two days of events with the highlight centering all around tulips.

•May 29: Next we visit The Church Basement Ladies in “The Last Potluck Supper,” playing at the Plymouth Playhouse. They will say goodbye in the last production of a long-running production. We will be sponsoring their last show. They have made a long run with five different shows around the country with their Lutheran humor.

If you are ready to give up snow, bring your snow shovel and park it at our door. It’s your decision if you want to take it back home with you just in case.

See you on Wednesday.
