Senior Center travel program gets a makeover

The recently expanded and renovated Falls Township Senior Center (FTSC) provides space for new activities and face-lifts for some of their favorite and most successful programs.

One of those transformations is the travel program. All their trips remain open to the public and are not age-restricted. Now, however, no seats are reserved without payment.

Travelers may pick their own seats on the bus and may select a seat for the lunch and show trips, of which there will be a variety of trip directors.

In 2017 FTSC will sponsor 24 trips, one casino trip and one non-casino trip each month. They will travel to the Dutch Apple Theatre, Huntingdon Hills Dinner Theatre, the Brownstone Dinner Theater, the Rainbow Comedy Playhouse, and Longwood Gardens.

In August they will go to a Phillies game and in September to Harrisburg for a Rail & Paddle Wheel Trip on the “Pride of the Susquehanna.”

Casino trips will be to Harrah’s, SugarHouse, Mohegan Sun (Poconos), Sands, Hollywood, Caesar’s, Mt. Airy, and Tropicana.

Participants are generally provided with some free slot play and/or food. In September they will spend two days in Connecticut at the Foxwoods Resort and at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun.

On April 28th to May 1st they will travel to Norfolk, VA, to the International Tattoo & Azalea Festival.

This largest spectacle of music and might in the United States offers an astounding display of inspirational military music, majestic massed pipes and drums, show-stopping drill team maneuvers, and colorful and elegant dancers.

The trip also includes the Azalea Festival parade and a Norfolk Harbor Cruise.

On October 1st-3rd, FTSC travelers will tour the famous Newport, Rhode Island mansions, take a guided tour of their Ten Mile Ocean Drive, visit the Cliff Walk, and take a sightseeing cruise of the harbor.
