LIFE SPONSORED FIELD TRIPS

In the spring of 2017 LIFE  sponsored a series of group field trips for our members.  This first series included three trips to local attractions in the Orlando area.  This was a successful test program and the LIFE board has agreed to continue the program into the fall 2017 semester.  The Fall 2017 schedule is shown below.  Sign Ups will start at the first fall class August 22, 2017

If you are interested in helping out with this new program contact Marie Ruckstuhl at marie.ruckstuhl@gmail.com.  Get involved and become a tour guide.
