This month's KC Area RS travel meeting will be the 1st anniversary meeting of our group and we should have our biggest group ever. I think everyone is back from their trips and I have heard from several new people asking about our group. I hope they can come this month. We should have a couple of good reports about trips to France. Anyone have questions about Paris and France? Also we should have a first timer with a lot of questions about an upcoming 1st solo trip to Italy (Rome). Italy veterans bring your suggestions of things to do. 10 AM Saturday August 17 at Panera West of Liberty (but is actually in Kansas City MO.) Just easier to give direction as West of Liberty. Take I-35 Northbound from Kansas City.....take the Liberty / Highway 152 exit.....turn left back over the interstate....turn right at the 1st intersection (Waffle House and Freddy's on each corner)...at the next interesection Panera is on the Northwest corner. Enter the door turn right and head to the hanging lamp. We should be at the large table under the lamp or at tables nearby...Look for the Rick Steves Blue Guidebooks on the table. We will be looking for you.
