Alumni and Retirees associations plan trip of Cape Cod

May 18, 2012 — The Morehead State University Alumni and Retirees associations are inviting members and friends to join them Oct. 11-19 for a trip through the East Coast to Cape Cod.

The group will visit Pennsylvania’s Amish County, and tour New York City’s historic landmarks, Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard, as well as Boston and Philadelphia.

Cost of the trip is $1,349 per person with a $50 deposit due July 11 and the remainder due Sept. 4. The price covers motor coach transportation, lodging and all breakfasts and five dinners.

“It’s a tremendous bargain and comes at a time when the eastern fall foliage is at its most colorful,” said Tami Jones, MSU director of alumni and constituent relations and liaison to the Retirees Association. “Those who made the trip to Savannah and Charleston know what a great time we had on that trip. This one should prove to be just as much fun.”

The group will head for Lancaster County, Pa., Thursday, Oct. 11, where they will spend the night and have a typical Amish dinner. On Friday, Oct. 12, there will be tours of the countryside including an F/X theatre production of “Jacob’s Choice,” before departing for New York after dinner.

Saturday, Oct. 13, is a full day of sightseeing, featuring the Statue of Liberty, the Ellis Island Immigration Museum and the 9-11 Memorial. Also slated, as time permits, will be tours of the city itself which will include Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Little Italy, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Rockefeller Center, Time’s Square, the theatre district and dinner.

Sunday, Oct. 14, the group departs for Cape Cod where travelers will tour Hyannis points of interest including the John F. Kennedy Memorial, the Korean War Memorial and St. Francis Xavier Church, the Kennedy’s summer parish.

Monday, Oct. 15, it’s off to Martha’s Vineyard for a Down Island Tour of picturesque villages, including the whaling town of Edgartown and Oak Bluffs with its brightly painted cottage with gingerbread trim. Dinner and entertainment are included.
