TRIPS:

Friday, March 15, we will head to Boston to enjoy a taste of spring and the beauty of the Boston Flower and Garden Show offered by First Choice Tours. Many of us have attended this fabulous event for many years and truly look forward to the lovely displays, demonstrations and informational sessions. A trip to Quincy Market will also be included - your choice. May 14, Best of Times is offering a tribute to John Denver by Ted Vigil (he is a dead ringer for Denver), Rocky Mountain High. We will travel by bus to Mohegan Sun for some gaming fun. Bring something to read or check out the shops to occupy your time until lunch if gambling isn’t for you. After lunch we will travel to the Garde Arts Theatre for a trip down memory lane which should bring us back to our younger days of good old country music. The cost of this event is only $84 and includes gratuity. Payment must be submitted by 4/20/13 with checks made payable to Brattleboro Senior Center.
