Welcome Back HBCOA Travel & Trips Program Participants
The HBCOA is excited to announce the much anticipated return of the Travel and Trips Day program, tentatively scheduled to resume mid-Summer 2021. It has been 15 long months that the program has had to lay dormant, but that break will soon be coming to a close with the return of programming by the Good Times Travel company. The program will be offering trips to Lake Arrowhead, Santa Barbara, and San Diego this summer, to destinations that are able to operate under current state health guidelines and are full of new adventures, new experiences, and lots of excitement and exploration.
