This year’s Christmas Season consisted of several walks and celebrations featuring the spirit of the holiday season.

Christmas 2014

On September 2, 2008 a group of the Happy Wanderers and friends took a 10 day land and sea trip to Alaska, our 49th state. This was a “mega event” for the participants and became the basis of several slide shows.
