Shipley Center Trip News & Notes
Yes, it’s true! We have arrived at that most wonderful time of the year! And such a busy time it is! What a year it has been … we went to many new places. About 150 people took the Shipley Bus to see the Terracotta Warriors! More than 80 people went out of town on overnight trips; and 74 people travelled internationally (Italy and Canada)! SWEET!!
There will be 48 travelers on our Victoria Holiday this year! It is such a fun winter trip. With the lights, Butchart Gardens, and the lovely hotel; you won’t want to miss it next year! Do sign up!
All the November outings filled up quickly. The most popular was the Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. I have scheduled another day in January to go to SAM, so if you didn’t make it in November, please give me a call and hopefully I can get you on the next bus to see the works of Andrew Wyeth.
DECEMBER 1ST at 1:00! Hope you can make it to this presentation: Branson & Nashville. You will probably need to sign up at the presentation, as it is only 6 months out. We have hooked up with Premier World Discovery and have had great reviews with tours we have previously done with them.
HAMILTON TICKETS: I want to mention this AGAIN! The PARAMOUNT IS NOT offering group tickets. I would suggest signing up at the eClub through their website: www.STGPresents.org. Hamilton tickets are not available through the Shipley Center.
Please note: I have posted a few requests on our Shipley bus regarding travel etiquette. First, no sodas on the bus. If they spill, the driver has to clean it up and it’s very sticky and messy. Secondly: if you are going to listen to music on the bus, please bring earphones or ear buds. Not everyone on the bus wants to listen to the same music. Phone calls can also be distracting on the bus. Please keep them to a minimum. Thanks!
Don’t forget we have a roommate list for overnight trips. Let me know if you would like to be in this group: Travel Roommate Inquiry Programmers (aka TRIP-ers!)
As always, CALL and RESERVE EARLY!
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
