ORUCC will be hosting a coach bus tour/trip focusing on Civil Rights landmarks. We will meet in Memphis, TN and travel will include Montgomery, Birmingham and Selma, Alabama; Jackson Mississippi; Little Rock, AR; and back to Memphis.
Tentative dates: Meet in Memphis on Thursday, October 25, concluding Monday, October 29, back in Memphis.
Cost is TBD but will be inclusive of 4 nights lodging, bus travel, museum fees and lunch each day. Participants will be responsible for travel to and from Memphis, breakfast and dinner and misc. spending. I’LL UPDATE THIS SITE WITH COST INFORMATION AS I GET IT.
Deadline to express interest – June 1.
Expectation of all participants – at least 3 gatherings as a group before the trip between June and October 14.
Detailed planning will be done as a group. Reading and reflection will be expected of participants before the trip; participation in daily reflection discussions will be expected of all on the trip.
We ask that additional travel and/or sightseeing be done before or after our time together; not during the group experience.
Click here to sign up as interested. A firm commitment will be expected later. We will have a cap of 25 people. As of May 9th, additional names will be put on a waiting list. We will give those who expressed interest first a chance to put a deposit down (in early June); after that we’ll go to the waiting list as space allows.
