Trip to England report
We met at Chuy’s Restaurant on Thursday, June 4, 2015, and heard from the travellers about their enjoyable trip to England. It was agreed by all that it was a great visit with plenty of activities and time to visit with host families. Several travellers arrived a few days early or stayed a few days late and visited other parts of the country as well as Scotland and Paris! The Eurostar train, zooming under the English Channel, made the trip in a mere 2 1/2 hours. We will be gathering photographs from the trip and posting them on this website.

We welcomed new guests to our meeting and talked about upcoming events in 2016 and 2017. Join us as we work out details for future hosting and travelling opportunities.
