PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

April 2024

Good morning to all our WPS family!

WPS is offering two great bus trips in the near future. From April 20-22, there is a trip to the Paragon Casino (they also have a movie theatre) and the Angola Prison Rodeo (where you can buy items made at the prison) in Marksville, LA. This trip is now full, but there is a wait list (contact First Travel of Burleson). From May 14-16, join us for a trip to the beautiful city of San Antonio. Details of this trip are in last month’s newsletter. There are still a few seats available, so call First Travel of Burleson at 817-447-8747. Hope to see you at one or the other.

Bus trips are a great way to travel, as they are like having your own private taxi. They are comfortable (offering water and snacks and have a restroom). They stop approximately every two hours for us to have a break and stretch our legs, grab an extra snack and use the restroom. They take us right up to the venue door, so there is no waiting in line. They pick us up at the hotel and return us.

What a great way to have a break from our routine and leave the driving to the bus driver. We don’t have to worry about driving, finding a parking space, missing our exit, etc., so that we can concentrate on having a great time with our friends.

Partnering with First Travel of Burleson, we were able to arrange another bus trip to Branson, MO, this year on December 2-6. The Site and Sound Theater will be featuring the “Sounds of Christmas,” and we will attend other shows as well. Full details are in the flyer this month. So, clear your calendar and come and enjoy. It will fill up fast.

WPS receives funds from these trips to help keep the office open and newsletters coming to you. Your support is very important to our great organization.

Just a REMINDER, our first General Meeting of the year is Thursday, April 18, at Spring Creek Barbeque in Mansfield. If you want some great BBQ, join us at 12 Noon for lunch. The meeting will start at 1:00 PM sharp.

Spring is here; enjoy the beauty!


Phyllis Weisheit, President
