Planning another bus trip for the spring

We had such a great time on our bus trip to the Mohegan Sun Casino that we are planning more trips. We were thinking of a trip to New York in the spring. We planned on having the bus drop us at the National History Museum, but people could go where they wanted for the day and meet back at the bus! Is this something you would be interested in?  How about a summer trip to Gloucester/Rockport?  Or a trip to Seratoga, New York in August for the horse races and/or casino?  Send me and email at (or through our website: and let me know what you think or to suggest places that might be fun to go to! You can also follow us on Facebook! Check us out and be sure to Like us! If you are at the center on a Saturday be sure to say hello!

Closed Monday, President's Day

The Franklin Area Survival Center will be closed on Monday, February 18, in observance of President's Day. Both the pantry and thrift store will reopen at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday.  Have a great holiday!
