Highlights of the trip include a visit to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Greenwich Village, Wall Street, the 9/11 Memorial, a Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall, and a Broadway show. There will be a bus tour of the city in this inclusive trip.

A special travel presentation will be held Tuesday, April 18, at 5:30 p.m. in the Blinn – Brenham Student Center. Those interested in attending the information session should RVSP to Merten at 979-830-4495.
