2015 Alumni Tour

Update: As of December 10, we have 56 confirmed passengers and are taking names for a waitlist. Please submit your registration form but do not send a deposit at this time. When a spot opens, we will call names starting at the top of the list until we fill them.

All WELS members are eligible and invited to join us June 20-30, 2015 for an 11-day, 10-night tour to scenic and historic New England.  We’ll set foot in all six New England states and get a wonderful overview of the region. Highlights include beautiful scenic drives along with visits to Acadia National Park, Plymouth, Lexington & Concord, Boston’s Freedom Trail, Fenway Park, Harvard, Newport, Gillette Castle, Lake Champlain, Von Trapp lodge, Franconia Notch, and Golden Pond. Daily devotions, worship and potlucks at WELS churches, local step-on guides, and fellowship with like-minded believers make this tour uplifting and unique.
