Savvy Travelers Club: Summer News

Think Christmas Markets—Sun Lakers on Uniworld Christmas Cruise

Jeanette Rajamaki

The Savvy Travelers Club will continue through the summer with a few virtual meetings, but starting Thursday, Oct. 21, we will meet live in the Saguaro Room at Cottonwood Country Club at 6:30 p.m. In July we had a presentation on Egypt via Zoom. If you are interested in joining our adventure to Egypt and Nile River Cruise for January 2023, email [email protected] or call 602-909-2000. Egypt is nearly sold out for 2022, and we had to investigate 2023 to get prime dates.

We are being reminded by our many on-site vendors throughout the world that the travel doors are opening and “The world misses you.” We are here to support all you travelers in the Sun Lakes area so you can “plan your comeback” comfortably, whether close to home or abroad, by land or by sea. Contact Jeanette Rajamaki at 602-909-2000 or Tami Bogdanoff at 425-359-4852.
