Trips & Social Events

TRIPS:

CCAL organizes a series of trips, usually by chartered bus, to places and events outside the Oneonta area. These include museums, historic sites and cultural performances. The cost varies depending on the distance, on prepaid admissions and whether meals are included. All members receive notices of trips via e-mail or U.S. mail inviting them to register.  Payment must be made at the time of registration.

CCAL trips are usually one day and begin and end at one of the local bus line terminals.

Jean Seroka is our current CCAL Trip Coordinator. Her contact information is:  jjwilser3@yahoo.com or 607.988.7007.  If you would like to be added or removed from the trip mailing list for receiving information about CCAL trips, please contact Jean by email or phone.
