Fall 2022
Bus Trips


Yes, bus trips will continue to have its own separate section up front, making these listings easier for you to find. Since we are still in uncharted COVID territory, these rules involving bus trips from Spring/Summer will continue.

1. Have your vaccination card ready to show at the bus door.
2. Wear a mask on the bus and likely at the venue.
3. If COVID worsens, we will hold the checks and let you know that we are doing so. We will adjust as necessary to the conditions we find this fall.
