Notes from Julia



Hello Everyone!
Is it possible that half of 2017 is already over? Time seems to pass more swiftly each year.

Our Chicagoarea Spring Mystery Trip included the Tempel Lipizzan training and performance stables, Sanfilippo Estate’s massive collection of historic automated music machines, Volo Auto Museum and Antique Mall, a Loyola University master chef’s cooking demonstration with lunch, a meal in a landmark 1927 railroad dining car, great seats at the theater, Baha’i Temple and Lily Pool Garden visits, and even the opportunity to create our own painting in an art studio. If you missed this awesome trip, call soon for our Fall [My]stery Tour. Few seats remain.

On June 28, AmeriClub travelers will have enjoyed a trip to the Chicago theatrical production, “Aladdin.” Thanks to Dyersville and Farley staff for making this a reality. The support of those responding to this trip is appreciated, as it has increasingly become more challenging to fill a motor coach to Chicago theater and sports events.

July, August, and early September will find me out of the office many days as I accompany travelers to the Canadian Maritimes provinces and Scandinavia. Also on my calendar are a couple “familiarization” trips, to explore future tour destinations, and a family road trip. If you call during that time, you will be assisted by very capable Marketing Department staff, who can answer most questions and take reservations. I appreciate their wonderful support when I am on tour; and I am confident in the top-notch service they provide to you, our valued AmeriClub members.

Next January’s Mexican Riviera Cruise on the fabulous Ruby Princess, with an overnight stay on the historic Queen Mary, offers a wonderful opportunity for those who have cruised the Caribbean and wish to experience another beautiful destination. Register early to reserve the best cabins.

As we gather with family and friends to celebrate the Fourth of July, let us remember that this holiday is actually named “Independence Day.” It honors those who have earned for us freedoms and rights we often take for granted. In spite of the difficulties our nation faces, let us be proud to call ourselves Americans!

With warm regards,
