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 downtown Chicago. Participants need not be alumni of the College.

The bus leaves the College Union in North Manchester at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 4, and will pick up passengers in Warsaw, at 8:30 a.m. at the Center Centre parking lot on U.S. 30. The round-trip cost $40.

“This is a great way to beat interstate traffic and save gas,” said Alumni Director Gary Montel.

Upon arrival in downtown Chicago, the bus will stop at Water Tower Place and Macy’s, with a shuttle between the two drop-off points midway through the afternoon. Shoppers are on their own for the day, including for lunch. The bus will depart the Loop at 6:30 p.m. North Manchester time, arriving in North Manchester about 10:30 p.m.

Shoppers may leave their vehicles in the College Union north parking lot on East Street for the day.

To register, contact the Manchester College Alumni Office at 982-5223, toll-free 888-257-2586 or
