Bill Coffey has asked that I share information about two up-coming trips
for Emeriti and Credit Union Seniors. Both look great. The first is the
Air Force Museum on August 4 and the second is the Hocking Hills on
Off we Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder!
Well, actually we are headed for the wilds of Dayton, Ohio,
home to the Air Force Museum.
It will be an amazing day.
Acres of aircraft from World War I to the modern B-2 Stealth
Bomber are there for your inspection.
They have added a lot of new stuff in the last three years.
Among the new additions are Presidential Aircraft, including
President Kennedy's Air Force One.
Visit exhibits devoted to the Wright Brothers. They were
Dayton homeboys, you know.

Let's head for the Hills!
Hocking Hills...that is.
Come on. Join the folks in the Hocking Hills. We
will visit the only "Washboard Factory" in the universe. The factory is
in Logan, and believe it or not, people still use it to do their laundry.
It is more than a musical instrument. The Columbus Washboard Company
ships all over the world, including packages to our servicemen overseas.
That will be our first stop. Next into the hills
for lunch at the Inn at Cedar Falls. They have a very nice menu of soups,
sandwiches, salads and deserts.

shops...chime shop...Christmas shop...candle shop and more.
