- Webinar - Learn About Our latest trips
Since we all don't live in New York, and even if you do, it's cold out, I thought a webinar describing the upcoming trips would be a good idea. For those not familiar with webinars - you need a laptop or computer to view the seminar on line, in the comfort of your own home. I will present the trips. You will have the opportunity to ask questions. Just like a regular meeting - except you can't give me the money. So, please sign up for the trips you are interested in (remember, it's not an obligation to go), and I will know what to talk about. Please join us! Ellen Mc Nulty will be discussing our upcoming trips, including: Tulip Time Cruise Best of Spain Azamara Greek Intensive Cruise Independence Day Celebration, Halifax And Boston Fireworks Cruise Historic Trains of the Old West There will be an opportunity for questions, too. If there is another trip you would like me to feature (time allowing), just email me: [masked] Here is the link to register for the webinar: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7707650574657476109 All of the instructions are included. You just need a computer and a phone. Each person needs to register separately
