Hi all! Still looking for a few more families to join us on a bus trip from Bridgton, ME to Concord/Lexington/Boston, MA from Monday, April 14th through Wednesday, April 16th to study the Revolutionary War.Need to know by tomorrow, or I may need to cancel the trip for lack of filling the bus (I am not putting a deposit on a bus without knowing it will have enough people to make it cost effective).Please see information below. If you have any questions about the trip, please let me know, and let me know right away if you are interested.

We need a few more families to fill the bus. If we have 47 people ride the bus, it will cost $43.00 (plus a $6 tip) per person. If we have 55 people ride the bus, it will cost $37.00 (plus a $6 tip) per person. This covers the cost of all 3 days. NEED TO KNOW by January 27th so the bus can be reserved.
We would be staying at a hotel on the north shore (least expensive around Boston). For a room with 2 double beds it would cost $83.78 (includes tax) per night ($167.56 for 2 nights), plus tip.
