Shipley Center Trip News & Notes: June 2020
It’s June! We’re almost halfway through the year! Can you believe it?
I sure do miss our Shipley travelers! Our regional trips were so promising; so many of you had signed up for our Cranberry Coast adventure to Long Beach, WA. I have actually talked to the hotel and there is a chance of rescheduling in September. Of course, we will have to wait to see if museums and restaurants have opened by then. This is tentative. Meanwhile, those of you requesting a refund should have received it by this time. When I have more information on the rescheduled date, I will call those of you who had planned to go.
As far as the trip planned for Chemainus in June: It is officially canceled. Butchart Gardens has opened up, but the Chemainus Dinner Theatre is closed for the season. This was such discouraging news: We will hope for next year!
JUNE 16! This is the date we were to have a presentation for our 2021 Collette trips. Unfortunately, we will need to reschedule (that must be the most common word in our vocabulary this year!) that meeting. Let’s hope it will be during the summer, but I will let you know as soon as it is decided.
Please consider these adventures for next year: domestically to Southern Charm (March 2021), featuring South Carolina, Savannah, Jekyll Island and more; and internationally, Shades of Ireland (April 2021).

Any trips this summer, if we are able to plan them, will probably be to the west side; outdoor activities such as Cape Flattery, Salt Creek, and Marymere Falls. When we are able, we will resume going to Clearwater Casino. We also could take a few shopping excursions; or fit in a garden or nursery. But we will have to play the waiting game before we make any firm plans.
When our Shipley bus trips resume, it will be different. We will have to wait until the time approaches before we make any set rules.
Oh, the places we’ll go!
