This week's 50-Plus Senior Program's news is mainly on upcoming trips. The Aug. 22 motor coach trip to Seneca Niagara Casino is now filled but standbys are always welcome as oftentimes vacancies arise closer to trip departure. A reminder to those who have not yet paid: please do so right away. Cost is $11 for the three towns and $12 for all others.
Also all those going on the July 29 trip to Presque Isle Casino and the Carol Burnett Show at the Station Dinner Theater in Erie, Pa., are reminded that the motor coach will depart at 11 a.m. from the front lot of L. K. Painter Community Center, Main Street, Collins. All are reminded to bring a Presque Isle Players Card if they have one and everyone needs to have a valid state driver's license or a passport with them.
For those considering going on the Oct. 4 trip to see the new generation of Lennon Sisters appearing at the Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda, sign up early as there is only one performance and tickets cannot be ordered until it is certain that there is sufficient interest in attending. A deposit must be made when booking so it is imperative that we know early on that the show will be a go. Cost is $44 for residents of the towns of Collins, Perrysburg and Persia and $47 for all others. A refundable $20 deposit is due with reservations. Aug. 10 is the final day for reservations. Balances will be due by Sept. 12.
