San Francisco Group Charter Bus Trips
As we go to press, gas prices may be lower but pollution and human stress are on the increase. The Charter Bus Trips of the San Francisco Group are an increasingly practical way to make a contribution to reducing pollution, stress, and oil dependency and at the same time enjoy day excursions to some interesting and scenic locations. Here's the new schedule for the San Francisco Group's Charter Bus trips. Make your checks (no refunds) payable to "SFRG Outings", and send to Myra Forsythe at:
