Are you ready to explore the world? Would you like to learn more about travel destinations and what to do there? Are you looking for travel companions?

Travel experts, Don and Mary Merritt of Marcellus, announce the formation of a free travel club in Marcellus to bring together people interested in travel and learning about travel.

The Starfire Travel Club will meet Wednesday, January 30, 2013 beginning at 6 p.m. at the Marcellus Library, 32 Maple Street, Marcellus, NY. Admission is free and everyone is encouraged to bring their friends.

“The goal of the club is to bring together people with similar interests and get them excited about travel destinations around the world, said Don Merritt, a retired Syracuse Fire Lieutenant and travel expert. “My wife and I have met such interesting people as we travel. Thanks to social media, we’ve kept in touch and have even planned trips with them again!”

“I’ve met so many people who would like to travel but they’ve lost their loved one and they’re not comfortable traveling alone,” explained Mary Merritt, a freelance writer and Associate Professor of Communications at Cayuga Community College. “We’re hoping this club will help bring people together so they can team up and get back out to explore the world.”

The topic of the first meeting is Exploring Alaska. The Merritts say they plan to hold monthly meetings featuring different travel topics. “It will be a nice chance to network, learn something and win some free door prizes,” Merritt said. The schedule for future meetings at Marcellus Free Library includes Wednesday, March 27, 2014 and Wednesday, April 24, 2014.

Light refreshments will be served. If convenient please RSVP by calling 315-673-9194 or emailing donandmary@starfirecruises.com, however, walk-ins are welcome.
