WSPSS Bus Trip to the Bell Museum to See the Smithsonian Soils Display
We are going to charter a bus to take WSPSS members, family, and friends to the Bell Museum to see the traveling Smithsonian soils display on March 17th. We will pick up in Madison, Black River Falls, and Eau Claire with a lunch stop in Hudson. The plan at this point is to arrive at the Museum around noon stay for 2 hours then return. The museum admission is free on Sundays. The only cost to participants will be for the bus trip.
The charter bus will cost $1750.00 plus parking fees. At the last meeting, the membership in attendance approved $500.00 to be used for the bus. The cost of the bus has gone up since the first quote. In order to keep the cost per person at a reasonable price, we needed additional money from WSPSS to cover the cost of the bus. The membership approved the additional $500.00 for the trip in the recent vote. The bus will hold 56 passengers. We need a minimum of 40 people to register to make it a go. PLEASE have your reservation to Karla by March 5th. After March 5th you can still come provided we made our 40 minimum by that date and the bus is still going. The reservation checks will be held until the 40 number is reached. I hope the bus will not have any empty seats but if it does they will be offered to students at a reduced rate. Any questions or suggestions can be directed to Donna Ferren Guy 608-487-1311.
