Looking forward to the July 19-24 trip with my granddaughter Audrey 11. This will be a first intergenerational trip for us through Road Scholar. Looking forward to the time together.

Nice to read about who is coming and from where. My granddaughter and I will be driving from the Detroit area. Denice just turned 12 and will be entering 7th grade in the Fall.

We are flying in from Seattle on Saturday, June 21 on American AL, arriving in Richmond at 5:15 pm. The shuttle rates depend on the number of fares, so we'd be delighted to share with anyone else coming in about that time.
"We" is grandmother Connie and grandson William, 12 and going into 7th grade. Looking forward to meeting you all!
