|Discover Manhattan Day Trip for 50 Plus is July 24|
Discover Manhattan is the name of this trip. Participants will visit the newly-opened Flint Hills Discovery Center to see dynamic displays, and immersive exhibits. Participants will also have a chance to visit the gardens and store at this innovative center. The next stop is the Bill Snyder Family Stadium on the campus of Kansas State University, where they will take a guided tour of the five-story press box for a great view of K-State's football field since 1968. Before going home, travelers will stop for ice cream at KSU's Call Hall Dairy Bar (not included in the trip price). Lunch will be at the Little Apple Brewing Company.

While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at www.jcprd.com.
