Senior center members may register the first ten days. After that, non-member seniors or those
ages 21-49 accompanying a senior, may register for remaining seats. Payment is due when
registering and must be paid with checks or money orders. Cancellation/refund policies are
determined by the tour company arranging the trip. Please check before registering to see if
scooters or wheelchairs can be accommodated. Take-home flyers are available at the center.
In order to take advantage of special promotions, it is possible that new trips may be offered on

every trip. Emergency cards: travelers will need to complete a new travel emergency/waiver
card if the previous card is more than a year old.
In order to comply with mailing requirements, details on overnight trips cannot be printed in the

SENIOR CENTER SHIRTS
You may have noticed other members wearing the blue long sleeve or polo shirt with the senior
center logo. If you would like to purchase one, please see the receptionist. There is a $10
deposit that will be held until Land’s End offers a special promotion and, sometimes, that can
take a while. When the promotions are offered, they come up quickly with a short deadline so it
works better to get on the list now and wait for the promotion. There has been a small price
increase: polo shirts now cost $24 for sizes s, m, l, xl, (xxl for men only) or $29 for 2x, 3x, (1x for
women only) with long sleeve shirts costing $22.50 and $27.50. There is a sizing chart at the
desk as well as a women’s xl polo shirt to try on.
