Looking forward to getting back on the road

Looking for warm weather and sunshine, but my husband and I returned recently from a driving trip south and we still are looking for more sunshine.

We stopped at various state welcome centers, to learn more about the area. This trip included visits to two presidential libraries — The William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas and the Lyndon B. Johnson Library in Austin, Texas. There is so much history and interest as you travel, it’s just another way to spend part of our vacation.

Our annual Coffee Party this past Friday confirmed for me folks are ready to make plans to enjoy some travel and outings soon. Out March newsletter has been sent to members and copies can be picked up on the south side of the Mower County Senior Center, under the canopied entrance. Travel is open to the public and all ages.
