We have collected the final payment for the Pirates baseball trip. We do have several seats still available but we need to know immediately if you are interested because we have to turn in our unsold seats. The price is $125 per person which includes your ticket to the game, the motor coach and a ride on the Gateway Clipper Shuttle to PNC Park.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call 304-478-2423.

We will be collecting for the September 10, 2017 to September 15, 2017 trip to Myrtle Beach on Thursday, July 6th.  The cost of this trip will be $ 700.00 per person based on double occupancy. There ARE still some spaces available so if you are interested, please give us a call.  If you have any questions, feel free to call the Parsons Center at 304-478-2423. Because we have seats available and we have offered this trip to our seniors first, we can now take names of any adults that are not seniors but would still like to go.
