    Another fantastic Winter outing!. The bus was all alive with conversations from those that hadn't seen each other in a while, playing catchup.

    The Light show was as good or better than last year.
    You couldn't ask for a better prime rib dinner. Those local talent that put on the Dickens skit were fantastic, including the children. The audience participation was a lot of fun and laughs.

    This was one of the best events I have ever attended. The retelling of Dickens's A Christmas Carol was humorous, engaging and very entertaining, especially the "6 Geese A Laying...."! The food was delicious and the company was great. Thanks Sue for organizing a great day trip!

    HI Ladies:

    Springfield has reported the event it is open and cleared, and event is being held. If they don't cancel the trip is on! I just checked highway cams and highways appear in pretty good condition. I also just took a quick trip around Wakefield and the main roads are mostly tar, back roads are mixed snow and tar. Highway 128 is mostly tar with some light slush, traffic moving around 50 mph.

    I understand if you or others chose not to attend, due to the weather or not being able to get out of your driveway etc. I leave that entirely up to you, just know event is non refundable.

    Just let me know so that the bus and it's passengers are looking for you. Thank you!

    The event is still on for tomorrow....snow is suppose to stop early tomorrow night and with it being a weekend the highway department should be able to do a good job keeping up with it. Unfortunately the event is non refundable unless the event is cancelled and as of right now the event is on.....the tour company has not cancelled nor Springfield. I DO ADVISE YOU TO WATCH THIS SITE AND NOTES FOR ANY CHANGES TOMORROW. SOME OF YOU HAVE ASKED WHAT TO DO IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO ATTEND....PLEASE LET ME KNOW, EITHER HERE ON NOTES OR CALL ME[masked] SO WE ARE NOT WORRIED ABOUT YOU OR WAITING! Thank you:)

    Hi Sue, Once again, I'm not sure of where to catch the bus! Do I Google Wilmington shriners auditorium as the pick up site for the bus? Does the bus stop in the parking lot? I just need to confirm that I will find the bus stop! Nervous Nelly here because it's a new location for me to find. Thx
