Dear Traveling Friends,

We are all trying to adjust to the new normal of unprecedented times due to the corona virus.  Your Travel Club has had to cancel 3 trips:  A
Musical Journey, Have A Blast in Rocket City, and our Essential Holland Cruise.  A complete refund will be mailed out shortly for the Rocket
City trip as payments had not been sent out yet because the trip departs May 11th.  The Musical Journey trip is a bit different because we
were only 8 days from departure and all vendors had been paid in full.  Therefore, when we receive the refunds (which the vendors have
stated that they will refund fully), we will be refunding you!  There will be no need to file a travel insurance claim as you will be receiving a full
refund.  As you realize, we are your travel club and not a tour company and we organize the trips just for you.  When you give us a deposit, we
send the deposits directly to the hotels, etc.  When you make your final payments, we then forward those payments directly to the vendors
(hotels, restaurants, attractions).  This is different from a tour company where they operate on a profit.  Your trips are offered at the exact cost
of the trip, plus 2% of the cost, which goes directly to “club equity,” which is used for our year-end philanthropic disbursements and entitles us
to provide tours to our members as “fund raising” activities.

With the corona virus upon us, many people have questions regarding “travel insurance.”  Travel insurance can help but has its limits!  Travel
insurance is a good idea if you’re traveling to a place where you feel more at risk of getting sick or if you have a medical condition that could
force you to cancel your trip.  Policies have a very specific list of covered reasons for cancellation but general concern about traveling isn’t
one of them.  Shop around and read the “fine print” to make sure that the travel insurance
you’re considering, covers everything you think it should.  If you have pre-existing conditions, select a policy that covers pre-existing
conditions.  Check out the website that lets travelers compare travel insurance (InsureMyTrip.com).  We list 3 major travel insurance
companies on the travel page of the Ladies Club website.  

We have some great trips coming up this summer:  Christmas in July (deadline June 5th) – Pink Jeeps – Secret City.  Also, our Fall trip are “a
go!”  Sandi Edwards is planning to redo “Have a “Blast” in Rocket City” for next May.  Our trip, that was to leave today (“A Musical Journey”),
will be redone to coordinate with a trip that I was already working on for March 2021.  It will still visit Memphis (Graceland) and New Orleans but
from there it really takes off.  Watch for this new trip on the website.  It’s entitled, “Spring in the South - My Favorite Places” and you guessed
it… this is my last hurrah (other than Ireland) and I’m taking you to my favorite places down South!

Please everyone - stay safe and healthy during these trying times!
