Happy New Year Everyone! I would like to thank everyone who went on trips with the Rose City Senior Center in 2018. With your participation, it was a fantastic year!
I would like to mention that trips have been very popular this past year and I know it has been frustrating for some people who end up on a waiting list for a trip. With our new phone system, during call-in registration, multiple people can leave me a message at the same time. This is great because now you don’t get a busy signal when you call in at 5:00pm but it also means that some trips can sell out in minutes depending on how many seats are available and how many people are calling.
Please do not hesitate to add your name to a trip waiting list even if the list is long. In the past, I have gone through entire waiting lists looking for people to fill seats. Also, if I know a trip has a large waiting list, I will try to accommodate people by adding a second bus or second date for a trip if possible. This past year I added a second bus for two very popular trips. So it is important to add your name to the waiting list so I can get an accurate idea of everyone who is interested in the trip.
Considering the popularity of trips this past year, I plan on adding a couple of additional trips throughout 2019. If you do have a suggestion for a trip or if you have been on a prior trip and would be interesting in repeating it, please let me know! Although I cannot accommodate all requests for a variety of reasons, I do appreciate your suggestions to get a better understanding of the interests of trip participants. You can drop off your ideas at the Reception desk or in the comment box located outside of the Pool Room.
Let’s make 2019 a great New Year! Thanks again! Hilary Sandberg, Program Administrator
