Spring is around the corner!  It's time to think of doing some day trips.  Here are 5 proposed starting in April.  Please note the deadlines.  There needs to be a minimum of participants by the deadline for a trip to go. I think the trips ahead offer a variety of events and destinations that will be fun to attend and visit together.  I'm planning for the bigger bus so sign up soon.
