YMCA and Babler Bus Service Launch Bus Trip Series

The YMCA and Babler Bus Service, Inc. are launching a new series of bus trips open to anyone with an itch for adventure.

A trip is planned for March 24 to see the Passion Play in Appleton and the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion.

The Passion Play (at the Xavier High School Performing Arts Center) revives the beauty and pageantry of the New Testament, which comes to life in a dramatic musical depiction of the life of Christ.

Following an early evening dinner at The Golden Corral in Green Bay, the trip visits the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion, the first and only Marian shrine in the United States that is on the site of an approved apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary. (The gift shop will be closed during this visit.)

Pick-up locations include the Fish Creek YMCA at 10:30 am and the Sturgeon Bay YMCA at 11 am. The approximate return to Sturgeon Bay is 7 pm, and 7:30 pm for Fish Creek.

The cost is $50 for YMCA members and $55 for non-members.

Interested travellers are asked to register by Jan. 22. To register, call 743.4949, 868.3660 or visit
