Overwhelming factors have prompted us to cancel our
May 9th "Plan Your Own Day" bus trip to New York City.

Following the guidelines for "social distancing", plus recent word that the NY Hilton (our sole pickup point) is closing for the duration has
led us to this sad decision.
Checks already received will be returned.

During this time of social isolation,
Applause Series favorites, Judy Handler and Mark Levesque
