Travel with SWIRCA & More
Last year, SWIRCA began offering bus trips and we received great feedback. This year, we will have four day trips and one four day trip. These bus trips will leave from SWIRCA in the morning and be back in time for dinner with the exception of the four- day Branson trip. All trips will take a Coach style bus with a bathroom. Tickets for these trips will go on sale in February. You don’t have to be a SWIRCA member to attend. More information will be posted as details are decided.
