Our Senior Travel Program is one of the most popular aspects of our center and has provided many of our members with the opportunity to travel to different regions in Tennessee and some surrounding states. This program offers educational and recreational trips. Group touring is a way for senior adults to experience with enthusiasm many great travel opportunities. We do the planning and execution of details, and you can comfortably and safely be escorted with new and old friends to destinations of interest and adventure. This program is made possible by a generous group effort from our sponsors (pictured) Eye Centers of TN, City of Crossville, Cumberland County, and Cumberland Good Samaritans. Their funding helped purchase our 2019 Ford Transit Van that provides safe, comfortable travel for 12 passengers and storage for walkers, or collapsible wheel chairs. A special thank you to those of you who made this program possible for our members, your generosity is greatly appreciated.
