During the June 2017 Executive Board meeting there was discussion about a proposed Club related bus trip. From this discussion, a decision was made to make preliminary arrangements for a day trip to New York City. An initial itinerary would be as follows:

1. Leave Windsor at 8:00 AM on a week day

2. Arrive in lower Manhattan at approximately 11:00 AM - tour the High Line gardens which are built on a former elevated railway.

3. Arrive at one of either two botanical gardens in the city at 1:30 PM. These would be either the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens or the New York Botanical Gardens which are located in the Bronx.

4. Depart the city at 5:00 PM for the return to Windsor.

Potential dates for the tour would be mid October of 2017 or mid May of 2018. The October date would fit in with the Club's 80th anniversary celebration.

As more detailed information is firmed up, periodic updates will be provided.
