Road Trip to the Dahlia Gardens in Midland
Hi everyone just giving you an update on our trip to Midland.
At this point the consensous is that going on Saturday, May 18th works for all those who signed up.
We should try to be on the road by 9:00 am at the latest to get us up there by 11:00 am.
We can stop for a quick takeout lunch after we finish with Dahlia Gardens and the art gallery.
After lunch we could tour the Dow Gardens and Midland Art Center which are next to each other.
All this is up for discussion, so send me your thoughts.
Right now we have seven people signed up to go. So we will need two cars. I suggest the riders
chip in for gas. Gas for up and back will cost roughly $35.00 depending on each cars mileage.
For those who haven't signed up yet there is still time to contact me.
