We were grateful that Al and Dottie Warkentine opened their beautiful home to welcome TourMagination alumni and friends who wished to come and meet us; and then on Saturday, January 13, Mark and Lorraine Grover provided the same hospitality in their beautiful home in Modesto.
In both communities, persons were happy to be able to put a face to persons at the TourMagination office with whom they communicate. Repeatedly, persons expressed deep appreciation for the program TourMagination offers, the importance of building bridges of understanding around the world and of having the opportunity to explore various cultures of our world.
On January 20, a reception will be held in Abbotsford, British Columbia, hosted by Dan and Agnes Ratzlaff and also on February 2, in Goshen, Indiana, hosted by Vance and Karon Weaver. Please feel free to join us at one of these events, if you live in the area of Abbotsford or Goshen.
TourMagination values the opportunity to meet our alumni and friends in your community. We value your feedback and appreciate the opportunity to interpret our tours. We hope to meet many of you in the next few weeks.
