MC Alumni Association offers Christmas shopping trip to Chicago

            Again this December, the Manchester College Alumni Association is hosting a hassle-free, drive-free Christmas shopping trip to Chicago. The bus leaves the College Union in North Manchester at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6, and returns that evening. The round-trip cost $40.

            “This is a great way to beat interstate traffic and save yourself from spending a small fortune in gas,” says Alumni Director Gary Montel. The association offered a similar trip in December 2004.

            Shoppers may leave their vehicles in the College parking lot for the day. Upon arrival in Chicago, the bus will stop at Water Tower Place and Marshall Field’s.  Midway through the afternoon, the bus will shuttle shoppers between the two drop-off points. Shoppers are on their own for the day, including for lunch. They will leave Chicago at 5 p.m.

            To sign up for the trip, log onto or call the Manchester College Alumni Office at 982-5222 or toll-free at 1-888-257-2586. The trip is for alumni, employees and friends of the college and their guests.
