Fagen Museum Excursion - August 8th 2018

The last three years, we had organized an August river cruise; this year we are riding the highways.  Our plan is to hire a Northfield Lines Bus.  This will either a 45 or a 56-passenger motor coach featuring large panoramic windows, large multiple video monitors, a DVD system and AM/FM stereo with CD player. The bus seats are comfortable cloth reclining seats with leather headrests and footrests, personal reading lights, and a spacious restroom in the rear of the bus. For those of us with walkers or wheelchairs there is plenty of space in the luggage compartment and the bus kneels to bring the steps down low making it easier to enter and exit for those of us with mobility issues. This activity coordinator is Director Gish Devlaminck with support from the board.

The excursion cost for the bus ride driver tips, and museum visit donation will be:

  • $20 per club member
  • $15 per club member's spouse or per accompanying grandchild(ren)
  • $25 per friend accompanying a member
