August is upon us already. What happened to the summer? We will have lots of fun things to do before summer is over.
The “Older Iowan’s Day” at the Iowa State Fair is Wednesday, Aug. 14. If you would like to go on the 10-15 Transit we will offer the transportation only for $15/person. Once at the gate the senior rate for the day will be $8/person. You will be responsible for the admission ticket and we will arrange only the transportation. If you are interested in this option you must stop by and sign-up and pay by Aug. 7. We will depart the club at 7 a.m., and return home by 5 p.m. This will allow the cooler part of the day to enjoy the sites.

This trip will be Sept. 23-26 which will include; one full day ride on the Celebration Belle from south of LeClaire to Dubuque which will include the breakfast, lunch and dinner with music and tour of two lock and dams.
