New Info.........

Jensen Friends,

Here’s an update of planned activities for this year’s meeting of the Jensen faithful. 

 Thursday:

 AM         Caravan to Corning Museum of Glass

 We anticipate a 1-2 hour visit at the museum leaving time for lunch and shopping in Corning’s Gaffer District.  We’ve secured a group rate of $9.00 per person for the museum.  The discount requires us to pay as a group so we’ll collect that at registration.

 Lunch in Corning:  We’ll provide a partial list of some local eateries that we can recommend, or take the path less travelled and discover a new venue! 

 PM         Seneca Lake Wine Tour

 Here’s a few wineries to check out:
