NIU Annuitants plan trip to Ford museum

Reservations are being accepted for the Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association trip to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids, Mich., on April 30.

The Gerald R. Ford Museum galleries feature hands-on, interactive, video and holographic displays that make visitors “participants” in history. The exhibits enable visitors to travel by video with President Ford and Secretary Kissinger to various hot spots around the globe; take a holographic tour of the Ford White House; and experience a day in the Oval Office through a sound and light show. A Watergate gallery includes a six-minute, multi-screen history beginning with the June 1972 break-in – plus the actual burglary tools on display. An interactive Cabinet Room allows visitors to take part in presidential decision-making.

Cost is $137 per person and includes round-trip deluxe motor coach from DeKalb, admission to the museum, box lunch, all taxes and gratuities. The bus will leave at 7:07 a.m. and return around 8 p.m. Deadline for payment is Feb. 22 or until space is gone.

For reservations or information, call Carder Travel Ltd. at 815-756-1547.
