Time to start thinking about the holidays!



The Parkland Garden Club

DECEMBER 10, 2015


It’s difficult to find flowers/ gardens to view in December (and we’ve done Longwood and Winterthur), so why not get in the holiday mood with some shopping, a wonderful meal, and a performance of A Christmas Carol, at the nationally recognized McCarter Theatre in Princeton, New Jersey. Princeton is a charming university town with shops and boutiques right across the street from the beautiful campus.


The bus will leave from Jordan Lutheran Church, 5103 Snowdrift Road, Orefield 18069 at 1PM and Enzo Travel, 3320 Airport Road, Allentown 18109 at 1:20PM. We should arrive in Princeton before 3PM for some free time before our wonderful meal at the Nassau Inn, one-half block off the campus. Google the Inn or refer to the Travel Section of the Morning Call on May 17. The Inn is charming and warm; perhaps arrive early and enjoy a drink in the attractive downstairs bar (lots of wood, tasteful decor) or carry your drink upstairs and warm yourself in front of the beautiful fireplace before our 5PM three-course dinner (choose entree below).


Dickens’ most popular work adapted for the stage is an annual tradition at the McCarter, but it is never quite the same as the year before. The McCarter has received a Tony Award for Best Regional Theatre so we are not talking about an amateur production. The show starts at 7:30 PM; we should be back in Orefield around midnight.


Complete the chit below and mail with your deposit or full payment check payable to the Parkland Garden Club to Ms MaryAnn Mc Cormick , 1055 Cetronia Road, Rt. 12 Breinigsville, PA 18031 .

The trip will be cancelled if we do not have 40 deposits by September 17 so forward this email to everyone you know, invite family and friends to enjoy this wonderful day.

Our bus on September 23 for this show was filled very quickly, and I could not get more tickets for that day. So if you can join us on November 4, you will enjoy the exact itinerary and wonderful show as those early birds did.


Perhaps almost as good but certainly less expensive than airfare to France is the Broadway show An American in Paris, winner of 4 Tony Awards: Orchestration, Scenic Design, Choreography, and Lighting Design. In my opinion, it should have won Best Musical; the show is absolutely glorious.


The bus will leave from Enzo Travel at 9 AM on WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4 and stop only at the Palace Theater, 1564 Broadway. You are on your own for shopping and lunch. Get to the theater around 1:30PM for the 2 PM matinee.  We leave immediately after the show for the nonstop ride home.


The cost of $162.00 per person includes front mezzanine seats, bus transportation, and driver gratuity. Remember we always need 40 people so spread the word! Gift certificates are always available. NO REFUNDS UNLESS YOU FIND A SUBSTITUTE.


Complete the chit below and mail with check (NO CREDIT CARDS) to Enzo Travel, 3320 Airport Road, Allentown, PA 18109 – remember deadline for checks is MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21. Call Sara 610 264 4585 for more information; no phone reservations. Bus seats are assigned in order of checks received.
