Life-long learning and community building.

I hope to have you join me on day trips! 
These trips support arts and nature in our region and give you learning opportunities and positive experiences.

Upcoming Day Trips 2022
Let me know if you are interested in going on day trips.  I understand not everyone is ready to go places.   Thank you for those who have traveled with me and sorry for those who want to go on trips that didn't have enough participants.  

Enthusiast of learning and going places
Arts Supporter

I love providing opportunities to go places and enjoy the Northland. 
Masks are required on our transportion vehicle. 

January trip to a local farm with animals. More information coming soon.  

GUTHRIE TRIP CANCELLED. NOT ENOUGHT PEOPLE REGISTERED BY THE DEADLINE.  I tried reaching out for people to attend.  Many of the people on the list don't use email/computers and I didn't do a mailing for one trip.  Covid is impacting the numbers.  No other trips are planned. I'm sorry. I really wish we could go to see this play!

What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?
A play by Lorraine Hansberry that opened on Broadway in 1959.
It was the first play written by an African American woman to be on Broadway and was the first with an African American director.

You'll get a chance to look out over the Mississippi River.

Keep safe. 

  I love to provide fun experiences.  As a teacher by heart I think experiences and opportuniies to learn are everywhere and these trips bring you to potentially new places for you to come on your own or with friends and family.  The trips also save gas and parking hassles.
