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

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. Polo shirts cost $24 for
sizes s, m, l, xl, (xxl available for men only) or $29 for 2x, 3x, (1x available 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 or it may be beneficial to try on a friend’s shirt to get an idea of
the sizing. Note: all sales final.
