Hannibal Regional Auxiliary is organizing a special trip, Canadian Rockies by Train, in conjunction with the longest-standing U.S. tour operator, Collette Vacations. Interested travelers can learn more about the tour by attending a free informational presentation from Lora Carlson with Collette Vacations at 4 p.m. Nov. 7, in Conference Room A/B located inside the main entrance of the hospital.
Canadian Rockies by Train departs Sept. 6, 2018, for nine days and includes 13 meals. Climb aboard as VIA Rail’s The Canadian takes you from Vancouver to Jasper on a once-in-a-lifetime overnight train journey. Relax in the domed car and experience panoramic views of snow-capped mountains, glacial lakes, rushing rivers and the sheer unspoiled wilderness of Canada. In Jasper you will see the dramatic Maligne Canyon and its picture-perfect lake and enjoy breakfast with a view. Journey along the unforgettable Icefields Parkway. Stop at Columbia Icefield and choose from a Glacier Experience across this mass of glacier ice or take a walk on the Glacier Skywalk. Feel like royalty while overnighting in the region’s most elegant hotels and resorts. Discover the natural beauty of Moraine Lake, the powerful Bow Falls and impressive Hoodoos. Experience a day on a ranch in the Alberta plains, complete with a wagon ride in search of buffalo and a barbecue lunch in the great outdoors.
Mary Griffen from Palmyra has traveled with Collette Vacations and said, “I like traveling with Collette because they are so organized and you get to see things that you wouldn’t probably do on your own if you were planning a trip. We have an amazing time, and I feel safe and with friends. I also love the convenience of it being planned through the Auxiliary and having someone local to help me. Plus I feel good about the cause and that part of the money goes back to the JECCC where my husband received treatment.” A portion of the trip proceeds will benefit Hannibal Regional Auxiliary. When booking any trip with Collette Vacations, Hannibal Regional Auxiliary can benefit. Simply ask your Collette representative for more information and be sure to mention Hannibal Regional Auxiliary.
The Auxiliary is currently teaming up with Collette to offer a Shades of Ireland Trip, Canadian Rockies by Train in 2018 and Oberammergau for the Passion Play in 2020. For more information about the trips or to RSVP for the free informational meeting, call 573-248-5272.
