NTCC plans travel-study course to Caddo Lake
The Northeast Texas Community College Hanson-Sewell Center in Pittsburg is hosting an exciting travel-study opportunity this spring. The day trip, which will include a tour of Caddo Lake, lunch at Big Pine lodge and a stroll in downtown Jefferson, TX, is scheduled for Thursday, April 17.
A chartered bus will leave the Hanson-Sewell Center (237 College Street in Pittsburg) at 10 a.m. The group will enjoy lunch at the Big Pines Lodge and Watering Hole in Karnack before heading to Caddo Lake. Later, participants will board The Graceful Ghost, a replica of an 1800′s era steamboat, to tour the unique scenery of Caddo Lake. The Graceful Ghost is the last known wood-burning, steam-powered, and stern paddle-wheel touring vessel in the world. A knowledgeable guide will provide guests with a colorful narration of the history of Caddo Lake and the surrounding areas.
Following the tour, the bus will stop in historic downtown Jefferson for a chance to shop, browse, and see the sights. The bus will return to Pittsburg around 6:30 p.m.
“We are very excited about this trip and encourage folks to get a group of friends or family together to join us. We take care of all of the details so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy yourself,” Judy Jackson, Director of the NTCC Hanson-Sewell Center, said.
The cost, which includes transportation, a tour ticket, and lunch, is only $60 per person. The deadline to register is Monday, March 31. Call 903-434-8134 or 903-434-8393 for more information or to register. NTCC will be closed March 10-14 for spring break, so please leave a message during that time and a representative will get back to you when they return.
