October 5 – 13
Please join us for the 2012 CIU “come and go” caravan where we will be visiting towns along the banks of the Wabash River from Geneva to Delphi. You can join and leave the caravan as your schedule permits. There will be a separate “rally fee” for each three day stop, which will be collected on the last day when all costs are known. We have planned many activities for the group and many more alternative things for you to see and enjoy on your own.
Please notify Ann Newman (email@example.com) if you intend to join us for this caravan, plus what dates you will be arriving or leaving the caravan if you can’t make the full trip.
You MUST make your own reservations for the two state parks (Stop 1 and 3). It’s especially important to make your reservation right way for stop 3 at Prophetstown. It’s Homecoming at Purdue and spaces are going quickly!!! http://indianastateparks.reserveamerica.com/
