Savvy Travelers Club to Meet in Person October 21

The Savvy Travelers Club gatherings will resume Oct. 21 and meet live in the Saguaro Room, Cottonwood Country Club, at 6:30 p.m. Savvy Travelers has invited Dan Dorn, local manager for CIE Tours, who has a focus on Ireland, Scotland, Britain, Iceland, and Italy. Dan will give us an update on protocols in place for travel in that part of the world and review some amazing itineraries. We will have refreshments and a couple door prizes and, hopefully, some brochures. Will have some updates on local one- and two-day getaways and how that is being handled. No dues, just come say Hi. We will have some social distancing, and I will have masks for those who wish them.

Many of you are wondering, are people traveling? Where? Yes, I will have an update on my recent international travel to Bermuda and beyond. I will have Stuart and Maria talk about their trip to the Galapagos.

Please contact us if you wish to receive our newsletter, [email protected].

We are being reminded by our many on-site vendors throughout the world that the travel doors are opening, slowly. 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 at 602-909-2000 or Tami at 425-359-4852.
