Southwest Fort Worth AARP
We will again rent a bus to take us to Dallas - this time to visit the Ross Perot Museum on Thursday, September 24, 2015. This is a fairly new museum that gets rave reviews so it should be very interesting. We found last year when we visited the George W Bush Library that renting our own bus was the only way to go. It was comfortable, safe, gave us time to enjoin conversations and left all the traffic and parking headaches to the driver, absolutely wonderful. Cost is $25 for a seat on a 33 passenger bus, with restroom. This cost includes entrance fee to the museum, a tip for the driver, and bottled water and a small snack on the way home. Be at Genesis UMC, 7635 S Hulen, by 8:45 a.m. Members, please contact the Activities Chairperson (see your directory or newsletter) or use this website's Contact page to request a reservation. Payment must be received by September 1st,
Last year we visited the U. S. Mint and the Kemball Art Museum as well as touring the Clark Gardens near Mineral Wells. In the past we visited the Confederate Museum, the Gone With the Wind Museum in Cleburne, and attended a touring Broadway play at Bass Hall. So you never know what will be planned next.
As part of activities we perform and participate in Community Service. Our National Day of Service will be celebrated with the collection of school supplies for economically challenged children at a grade school and a 6th grade school at our August 19 meeting. We collect food for the hungry each month - please bring non-perishables to our meetings. We always plan a special recognition for veterans in November.
