Anyone in this program next month, Sept 2015? Islands and ferries sound good.

Ditto... can't do it this year and I sure hope it is repeated next year.

I would love to participate in this program but I have a conflict. I sincerely hope this program will be repeated.

I am attending 1804 Lake Erie Program and I need a ride from the Toledo AMTRAK station to the Miller Ferry on Sunday May 12 2013; can you help? Thank you very much.

Hi, my name is Maureen, but everyone calls me 'Molly'. I have never taken a Road Scholar trip and am interested in perhaps finding a roommate for this excursion. I will be driving from Ann Arbor MI to the destination. If anyone is interested, please let me know...I plan on going regardless so, even if you are not interested in a roommate situation, stop by and say 'hi':)
