Two Elders being sought for Tomanowos delegation

05.14.2018 Dean Rhodes Culture, Events

Two Elders are being recruited for a planned June 19-22 trip to visit Tomanowos – the Willamette Meteorite – that is housed in the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

The deadline to enter a drawing to go on the trip is 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 30.

Elders must be 60 or older and physically able to get around since there is a lot of walking involved. Elders who have previously gone on the trip are not eligible.

A sign-up sheet is posted at the Elders Activity Center, 48940 Blacktail Drive.

The itinerary includes travel days on Tuesday, June 19, and Friday, June 22. The meteorite ceremony will be held on Wednesday, June 20, and a breakfast with museum staff is slated for Thursday, June 21.

If selected, Elders will need to submit their current ID, list of medications, emergency contact, primary care physician and any special needs to Public Affairs Administrative Assistant Chelsea Clark by Tuesday, June 5.
