Shipley Center Trip News & Notes
February is here, and we are excited for 2018!
One thing fantastic in February is a NEW DRIVER! Don’t fret … he’s not totally new! Don arrived at Shipley Center with more than 20 years of bus driving in Alaska, so he is well seasoned. We’re hoping to have him behind the wheel by March, but he will be traveling on the bus a few times this month with our regular drivers to see how they roll.
The Boeing tour filled up quickly! I scheduled another on February 27. Those on the current waiting list will be on the bus for sure on 2/27. You will need to contact me right away if you ant to get on this second trip. We will also have a bus to the Sewing Expo the first part of March. Call me ASAP!
MARINER’S GAME! The first Mariner game for the year is Wednesday, June 13. They will be playing the Angels! Let me know NOW if you want to go!
Our Costa Rica travelers are getting ready for their “tropical adventure” in March …how exciting! The Branson bunch will be on their toe-tappin’ trip in May…still time to go on that one, if you like music! Just let me know.
