Golden Tigers take part in Christmas-themed adventure
In an effort to accommodate the growing popularity of the Golden Tigers program day trips, as a trial, the Golden Tigers are taking the same day trip twice in November. The Golden Tigers’ first run was November 11, and its next will take place on November 30. The November day trips are a Christmas-themed adventure.
On November 11, the day began at Karg Art Glass studio in Kechi, Kansas, for a glass-blowing demonstration and the option to get involved in the process by working with a glass artist to blow their own custom Christmas ornament.
After this, Golden Tigers were able to peruse a variety of local shops, including a woodworking studio, two quilt shops, two antique shops, and a local greenhouse. The Golden Tigers went on to have a wonderful meal at Cracker Barrel. Then, to finish the day, they visited the Sedgwick County Zoo to tour the one-of-a-kind Lantern sculptures that make up the “Wild Lights” display.
“This trip was such a fun one, and I am so excited that I get to do it all again with more Golden Tigers later this month,” Golden Tigers coordinator Micah Fry said.
This semester, there are 250 community members taking part in the Golden Tigers program. The program’s previous highest enrollment was 228.
