News From The Director......
There have been a few times over the years when I wonder if I made the right decision to continue with the travel club or shut it down all together. This past week I talked to several people from the West Coast that have traveled with us in the past. A couple of the calls almost had me teary eyed as they thanked us for their wonderful memories we had provided for them. I would be remorse if I didn't past along the "Thank You's" .to Hellen, Pam & Lynn for their dedication during those years.
For the past & present club members and those from the west coast that traveled with us to 2009 Presidential Inauguration and who have contacted me over the past couple of weeks, the information for 2013's trip to Washington D.C. is up on our website. I am going to suggest you take a visit and read the information provided. For the church groups who have contacted me, I will provide additional information shortly.
There is serious talk of going to Baltimore, Maryland for a crab feast on the weekend of August 24-26, 2012. We need 30 minimum people to go at a cost estimated at $399.00 per person for us to run a motor coach there. There are 3 travel groups interested in making this happen. If you are seriously interested in going, drop us an email at TCATRAVELCLUB@AOL.COM with "Crab Feast" in subject box.
You will also need to be prepared to place a $100 deposit by May 25th. Let's make it happen.
On Saturday, October 5th come ride the Friendship Train to Chicago with author, motivational speaker, Tammy Turner. I am going to strongly suggest you reserve your seat early before Amtrak raises their rates.
Once again, do not open any emails from email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org unless you see a subject you recognize in the subject box. We apologize if we have not responded to or answered your emails in a timely manner. There are still the occasional issues with sending and receiving email.
