Adventure Opportunities

March 25, 2013

kevinPioneer Adventures, MNU’s new destination travel series, begins this year with travel opportunities for alumni and friends across the country, and around the world.

Our travels kick off in April 2013 with a weekend in Branson, Mo., hosted by Pioneer faculty members Barth and Kathy Smith and Ron and Karen McClellan. 

Additional opportunities include:

  • Israel (May 22—31, 2013)—Hosted by MNU religion department faculty
  • Durango/Southwest Colorado (August 1—3, 2013)—Hosted by Kevin and Shawna Garber and Greg and Peggy Hephner
  • Caribbean Cruise (January 3—9, 2014)—Hosted by MNU President David and Donna Spittal and Brian and Elizabeth Diddle
  • Scottsdale, Arizona (Spring 2014)—Hosted by Rocky and Jo Lamar and Chuck and Kathy Nunamaker

Future destinations may include Gatlinburg, Tenn., Lake Winnipesaukee, N.H., Büsingen, Germany, and Honolulu, Hawaii. I invite you to share your favorite travel destination. The sky is the limit on where we’ll venture next.

Destination travel is becoming a way of life.  Almost everyone enjoys spending time with close friends.  Why not take the trip of a lifetime with your college roommate and spouse, or that old gang you used to double date with on the Plaza?

We’ve done our best to create a travel opportunity for everyone—north or south, warm or cold, near or far. We hope you’ll find a trip that’s right for you. Pack your bags and invite a friend or better yet, a group.  We look forward to seeing you on a Pioneer Adventure soon!

Sincerely,

Kevin Garber
Director of Alumni Relations
