MACHIAS, Maine – The University of Maine at Machias has announced a public information session for its March 2012 trip to Amsterdam and Paris. The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 7, in room 104 of Torrey Hall.

Trip organizer Kay Kimball will go over travel details, fees, and registration deadlines for the trip, which will run March 23–30, 2012. There will also be a slideshow presentation of photos from last spring’s trip to Russia, and participants from that tour will be available to answer questions.

The trip, a private tour departing out of Bangor International Airport, is open to both students and community members. Travelers must be 10 years of age or older.

Highlights of the visit to Amsterdam will include a boat tour of the canals, Anne Frank’s house, Rijksmuseum, the Ten Boom House, and more. A train ride will take travelers to Paris, where they’ll enjoy the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Garden of Versailles, the Latin Quarter, and more.

With additional work and planning, students may take the trip to earn credit in art, English, or history.

Kimball encourages anyone interested in the trip to attend the information session and to register as soon as possible.
