Dear Travelers: In memory of our dear bus tour leader, Kitty Lynne Klich, I will be conducting her scheduled bus tour to Milwaukee on Saturday, April 18th to see the Broadway Musical, “My Fair Lady.” It is described as ‘the most perfect musical,’ and I think a fitting tribute to our wonderful lady, Kitty. As you know, Kitty loved planning and leading these bus tours and most of all, being with you! All of us at the Plymouth Arts Center were so greatly appreciative of her superb efforts. We knew how dedicated she was to making sure that everything went smoothly and that you had a great time traveling with us. We will do our best to fulfill her wishes of offering this trip and hopefully there will be others to follow.
