Thayer Trip update

Urgent Upcoming Trip Request:

A big thank you to all who have sent your reservation to me. However, I need to make a non-refundable deposit to the Thayer Hotel and I do not have the minimum 30 people to do this trip.
Please, if you are going and will send a check let me know asap. Those of you who have already signed up, please spread the word.  I need about 9 more people.
I hope we can fill the bus like we did on the last trip. By June we should be able to enjoy the nice weather while visiting the house and gardens of Boscobel, along with a fabulous buffet lunch at the famous Thayer hotel in West Point.

Saratoga Springs, NY – Victorian/Historical Guided Tour

New Trip!!   Saratoga Springs – Victorian Era/Historical Guided Tour

Message from Nancy Kocher (trip coordinator):
We will be going to Saratoga Springs on December 7th, where guides dressed in Victorian costumes will board the bus for a 2 hour tour of the Victorian mansions that still remain in Saratoga.  This will be a fun-filled event with lots of history, interesting stories and scandals of the era shared with us by an author and historian of the Saratoga area, Dr. Hollis Palmer. After our morning tour you will have free time to shop in the lovely village and to have lunch on your own.  Cost in the area for a nice lunch ranges between $10 – $15.

After shopping/lunch we will board the bus and go to the Batcheller Mansion where our guide Dr. Palmer will take on the role of Mr. Batcheller for our tour.

I already have a number of folks who want to come so please sign up as soon as possible because space will be limited.  This is a great time to do some holiday shopping. Cost for the trip is a bargain at $77!  I have a few surprises in store for everyone who takes the trip, so please come along. We board the bus at 8:00 am and will return home approx. 6:00 pm.

Please download and fill out the attached form: Saratoga Victorian Trip, then send to back to me with a check made out to CCAL.
