TRAVEL NEWS
The committee has voted on our Christmas trip for this year. We will be going to Amish country in Ohio (Sugarcreek and Walnut Creek) November 19 – 21, 2019. The trip will include 2 shows, 2 dinners, Lehman’s Hardware, Walnut Creek Cheese, Schrock’s Heritage Village, and possibly other sights, lodging, transportation, and gratuities. On the way home we will stop in Wheeling at Cabela’s and view the lights before returning to Tucker County. The cost of the trip is $375 per person based on double occupancy. Please remember that the seats will be reserved based on the receipt of your $75 deposit which will be subtracted from the final price. The collection dates (after the deposit is made) will be August 22nd and September 26th. Each of these payments will be $150.00 per person for double occupancy.  There are still several seats available so please call soon.
We can still take deposits for our cruise to the Southern Caribbean February 6 – 18, 2021. The deposit is $100 and needs to be paid as soon as possible to hold the cabin. We only have so long before the tour company has to turn the cabins back over to the cruise line and then if you can get a cabin, the price may go up. We’ve had several questions. We want to let you know that this will be a bus trip to Baltimore, MD to get on the ship. There is NO air flight involved. The prices are $1600, $1650, or $2000 depending on the type of cabin you want. If you need further details, please call Linda Bonner at 304-478-2423.
