HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It seems like it was just yesterday that we rolled out our Happy New Year 2014 edition of Humenik’s Highlights. Time has become very elusive. At times we need to disconnect from the web of instant messaging, social media, and relax a little, make time for our families and extended families; actual face to face time. The virtual world you will always have with you. Aging parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts and uncles you will not. Living every day to the fullest should include loving your loved ones. When was the last time you actually wrote a handwritten letter to tell someone how much you love them? Never? Seize the pen and paper, then seize the day! Do you have hard feelings between you and a friend or family member? Extend the olive branch. Life’s to short to hold grudges. Besides, they drain the life right out of you. So we wish you a Happy New Year! How happy this new year is going to be relies upon you.

UNITED STATES AIR FORCE MUSEUM TOUR
Back by popular demand, on Friday April 24th we’ll be rolling out for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the United States Air Force Museum. If you came on our last trip to the museum, you saw the Memphis Belle in a million pieces. Come back to see the progress that has been made restoring this notable war bird. PLEASE NOTE: If you want to go to the restoration facility, you must register ahead of time so you don’t get shut out of that opportunity. Register right away at nationalmuseum.af.mil/visit/tours.asp You will be required to present Government issued ID in order to go on this part of the tour, since the restoration hangars are located on the property of the Air Force Base. All visitors must be 12 or older, with no bags or backpacks. There is only one shuttle bus going to the site at 12:15PM. Don’t get shut out of this fascinating exhibit. Upon arrival at the museum you can check-in for this and other specialty trips that are available. When you arrive at Humenik’s parking lot on the day of the trip, please park your cars at the CVS end of the parking lot. We will depart from Humenik’s at 6AM, and be returning by 11PM. On our way home, we’ll stop for dinner at the Red Brick Tavern. Cost of the trip is $75.00 per person which includes transportation and dinner. Your reservation and payment must be turned in by March 20th. Hope to see you there.
When, if ever, was the last time you went to Washington D.C.? 10 years? 20?. If the last time was when your clothes were bought in the children’s department at Sears, it’s time to go back. This August we will be embarking on a four day, three night tour of our nation’s capital. En route, we will be making a stop at the Flight 93 Memorial in Somerset PA.
Highlights of the tour will be the stunning “Silent Drill” performed by the United States Marine Corps; Mount Vernon, a tour of George Washington’s estate; Arlington National Cemetery; and a tour of the National Mall, including the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam, WWII, and Korean War memorials.
Please send in your trip order form above indicating your interest in this trip. That will help us to be better able to complete preparing the final itinerary that will be printed in a future newsletter.
