2021 Trip Update
On Friday, August 13, Friendship Tours presented traveling during a COVID World. There was good attendance and interest in day trips. We were excited to start booking trips again. Unfortunately, on Monday, August 16 we were notified that due to the increased spread of the COVID virus, we would be required to wear masks inside the Senior Center. After consulting with the North Central District Health Department, we will need to delay the start of organized group trips until the COVID cases begin to decrease. Our primary goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy so the Senior Center can stay open for programs, lunches and socializing at a distance. The travel companies are still operating if you are interested in traveling with them on your own. As soon as we can offer trips in the future, we will resume traveling from the Senior Center.
