Recently members enjoyed a luncheon at the Circle facility, 215 N. Beeline Highway, and heard about the many travel opportunities that are coming their way over the next several months.
AZ Trails Travel of Fountain Hills handles most of the Senior Circle’s travel programs and through it, members are connected to other providers for some trips.
For instance, the next trip is a 10-day tour of Ireland, which is through Collette Tours. That trip is Sept. 1-10 and there is still time to sign up. The cost, which does not include airfare, is $2,099 per person, double occupancy (the rate is more for a single and less for a triple).
