Shipley Center Trip News & Notes: December 2020
Brrr… I’m feeling that winter chill. I seem to be cranking up the heat a bit more than last year!
I had many of you express interest in the Mayflower tour: Colorado’s Historic Trains. We had a ZOOM presentation on November 17 with about sixteen people participating. Looks like an exciting adventure, and is 10 months away. If you are interested in seeing the info, we did record the ZOOM meeting and I can forward it to you if you contact me. You have until March to register, so please be thinking about it. You can also check out the YouTube Video clip below to see some of the trains and activities.
A big THANK YOU goes to our awesome volunteer bus drivers for taking turns stopping by the center to take the bus for a drive or run it 20 minutes to keep it in shape. Another volunteer, Bob Hempel, installed two new batteries, to replace the old originals.
At this time last year, we had a group of 50 members heading to Victoria for our annual Holiday Trip. We had SO much fun those three days! Dealing with the pouring rain for our Butchart Gardens tour was a bit daunting, but we still had a good time! I will miss that immensely this year, but hope to plan for next year if all goes well.
Those of you who contacted me about the Book Club, we will discuss Nine Perfect Strangers in a ZOOM meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 10:00am. Please call 360.683.5883 or email me to sign up and find out about our next book.
Though celebrating this holiday season is not what we are used to, please try to think of a way to make it special, create a new memory, or start a new tradition. We will not forget 2020, but we can hope for a better new year.
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Bring it on, 2021!
Oh, the places we’ll go!
