AAUW Travelers.

NEW YORK – We are in the planning stages of the trip to Hyde Park and the Adirondacks areas. One decision made is the trip will be the first part of October, before the 15th. To determine the costs (transportation and accommodations) we need to know how many may be interested. A commitment response is not needed yet, just an interest.

If interested in the Russia and/or New York trip, please email either Sue Stoll or Patty Smart for more information.
