MARCH FIELD TRIP: Reid Park Zoo
Due to an emergency, there is only one ticket left for Monday’s trip.
- Tickets are $40 ($45 for non-members). You may contact Nancy Wilson with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Please be at the Madera Clubhouse by 8:30am but no later than 8:45am for check-in as the buses will depart from the Clubhouse promptly at 9:00am on Monday, March 28, and return around 4:00pm.
- If you plan on purchasing tickets for margaritas or wine at lunch please bring correct change ($5 per ticket) as we will not be keeping a bank on the bus.
- Suggestions are to wear comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and possibly a hat.
- Water will be available at the zoo all day.
- There will be free time to visit the gift shop and/or explore the zoo on your own. Your bus “leader” will explain where you will need to be when.
- If you’d like to participate in the Baby Bottle Bus Challenge, be sure to bring any loose change, dollars or checks to stuff in the Big Baby Bottles for the “baby’s starter college fund”. We appreciate all of you who choose to participate in this fun game of… which bus will win?
If a last minute emergency occurs and you can’t attend for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible (even if it is that morning – we need to know). This way we won’t wonder if you are on your way as the buses are leaving the parking lot. By Sunday evening: call Peggy McGee (207-6188 home), Janice Pell (405-9731 cell), or Nancy Wilson (400-0488 cell). If you need to cancel Monday morning, call Janice or Nancy on their cell phone prior to 9:00am.

The next Honor Flight will be departing Tucson Airport on Saturday, April 23 at 6:30am and returning to Tucson on Monday, April 25 at 5:50pm.

It is a very emotional and patriotic opportunity! Please consider writing letters to the Vets on this flight thanking them and honoring them for their service to our country. The appreciation is overwhelming!
