Trip Fam. Meeting

question-markDid you know the City of St. Charles organizes vacation packages through the Parks & Recreation Department?  Every year, we put together numerous day trips as well as a couple of large-scale, week long vacations.  All are welcome including area families, couples, and seniors.

For 2010, we already have two exciting trips planned…

Magnolias, Mansions & More

March 22 – 29, 2010

A week-long trip through the historic sites of Mississippi and Louisiana.

Mount Rushmore

September 8 – 17, 2009

A trip north to see Mount Rushmore and other interesting sites along the way.

We are having our first informational meeting on these trips on Sunday, November 1, 2009 at 3 p.m.  The meeting will be held in Memorial Hall at Blanchette Park.
At this meeting, you will receive a complete itinerary with price break downs for both of the 2010 trips as well as the Fireside Christmas Trip.

YOU MUST RSVP to ensure that we have enough space and informational packets for you at the meeting.

If you would like to reserve a spot at the meeting, or receive additional information, call John Pike at 636.949.3580 or contact the Parks office at 636.949.3372.
