Winter party brings travelers together

Our Mower County Seniors travelers were invited to an annual Winter Coffee Party/Travel Show this past week.

It’s always a fun time when folks can get together and share in fellowship and some goodies and hot beverages.

A calendar of trips planned along with sign-ups were available.
