DC/Wall trip postponed.

The National Weather Service is calling for high winds and a possibility of severe thunderstorms, in the entire region, starting tonight into tomorrow. Due to the obvious discomfort and potential for  a hazardous trip, we have postponed the trip until June 25th, 2011. We will still meet at the Blue Hen Corporate Center at 845, for a 9am departure. And the bus will still return us to the same location at 5pm the afternoon.

I appologize for this late inconvenience but felt it was best to error on the safe side. Please be reminded that there are still seats available and if you have requested seats be reserved the tickets can now be purchased in advance.

Thank you, everyone, for your support and patience.

DC Trip Postponed Due To Weather

The trip tomorrow (April 16th) for the Vietnam Wall has been postponed until June 25th, leaving at 9:00 AM. This trip was postponed due to the inclement weather predicting heavy wind and rain for Wash D.C. There are still seats available, contact Dennis Mehrenberg (302-242-2232), if you have not paid and want to go.

Possible Rain on our parade

Just a simple note to everyone planning to attend the DC bus trip on Saturday the 16th. As of right now, the forcasters are predicting showers for the day. Currently, they rate the probability at 60%. As we all know, that means it could be a brief simple shower, a downpour or just another beautiful day in the neighborhood. My best suggestion is to come prepared. A simple rain jacket should do the trick. If nothing else, when the sun is shining brightly and you feel as though everything you wore is much too heavy, you can still just tie the jacket around your waist and enjoy the beautiful scenery.  There is one happy note. Even if it does turn out to be a wet day, D.C. does not have a monsoon season!!:)

DC Bus trip Apr. 16, 2011

We still have seats available for the upcoming bus trip.  Our goal is to fill every seat. So, if you know anyone who might like to go, invite them. We will reserve them a seat and they can pay at the bus.

The bus departs Dover at 9am on Saturday the 16th and returns at 5pm the same day. We will meet the buses at the Blue Hen coporate center, North end of the parking lot, (near the Firestone store), Rt 113 across from the Dover DMV and will be returned to that same location.

To have any empty seats would be a shame. We all know people who will say, “wow, I would have enjoyed going”. Don’t leave them wishing. Get with them and get them involved.
