TRIP AND EVENT REGISTRATIONS                

Trip and event registrations will begin on Monday, August 1, at 9:00 a.m., unless otherwise indicated. Payment must be made at the time of registration.  If a minimum number of participants are not met for any event, the tour or activity will be cancelled and a full refund will be issued if a fee was charged.  You may register only one person in addition to yourself.  No staff at the Senior Center can take your money ahead of schedule and register you for a trip. No refunds will be given for any trip or activity if the program requires a non-refundable charge (i.e., tickets, food, supplies, etc.)  A refund will only be issued if someone takes your spot.  If you must cancel your reservation on a trip please call the Senior Center at least 24 hours in advance when possible.
