See posting on bulletin board; flyers available.

Since 2011, Carolyn and Betty have arranged and conducted 13 long trips and 32 day trips.
With the long trips, 246 different people have been served (not counting Carolyn and Betty).
In the last two years, there have been 161 different people served on six long trips. From this
number, five people went on five trips, nine people went on four trips, and eleven went on
three trips so it is not always the same people who go on each trip. Everyone has the same
opportunity to register and it is first come, first served. In the event a trip is full, you can be
placed on the waiting list. If you are willing to room single or with someone you do not know,
this may increase your chances of going if someone cancels. If the time on the first
registration day for a long trip begins at 9 a.m., some people choose to arrive very early and
line up outside before the center opens. If the first day occurs during a winter month, the time
may shift to the afternoon so people do not wait outside in the cold. Upon entering, people will
be given a number and then sit in the order they were lined up outside. On day trips, a person
may register for herself and one other member. On overnight trips, a person may register for
herself and her roommates only. Seat assignments are made for long trips, based on when
final payment is received. Members have priority to register. If your travelling companion is not
a member, you will either need to wait to register when she is allowed or your companion
needs to join the center to be eligible for priority registration. Joining the center does not
guarantee that you will get on the trip but it does give you an earlier opportunity to register.
Carolyn and Betty work extremely hard to organize and execute the trips and make them a lot
of fun with games, prizes, and movies on the bus. The trips are very popular and serve as a
great opportunity for new members to meet people. Hope to see you on a trip sometime!

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.
Now Available at Desk: new, men’s polo shirt, size xxl, $29.
