by Bradley Hartsell

The Tommy Thompson Senior Center in Newnan is presenting another motorcoach tour. On Nov. 3, Tommy Thompson seniors will experience a four-day, three-night stay in Asheville, NC.

The trip, from Nov. 3-6, is $349 per person and includes six meals (three breakfasts and three dinners). The trip will include a guided tour of Asheville and a full-day visit to the Biltmore Estate.

There is also a guided drive through Blue Ridge Parkway, along with numerous other stops along the way. The last trip hosted by Tommy Thompson was a Biloxi, MS, gambling tour from May 19-23. With the success of that trip, Tommy Thompson is rolling forward with this Asheville tour.

The departure for Asheville is scheduled at 8 a.m. on Nov. 3 from Tommy Thompson Senior Center at 29 Hospital Road in Newnan.

$75 is due upon signing up for the trip. The price is per person, based on double occupancy. Add $90 for single occupancy. The final payment for the trip is Sept. 1. For more information, contact Danette Martin at 770-683-8600.
