We Love Our Preferred Tour Operators

We didn't always have to leave the host hotel for great entertainment. The Heritage Clubs International Preferred Tour Operators brought in entertainment that showcased some of what might be found on a trip with them. I think I explained the PTO's in an earlier post. They are the ones who provide the wonderful trips the bank travel club directors take their customers on. Whether it's a couple of days in Branson, a cruise to Alaska or around the world, they make all of the arrangements.

Susan Damon, the President of Flemming Tours wowed us with The Cats Pajamas, a vocal band whose home is in the Dutton Family Theater in Branson.
Susan and Russ Rosenberry of Islands in the Sun teased us about their exotic cruises with the wonderful latin guitarist Edgar Cruz.
Heritage Peer Group host for 2011 Dubuque Iowa hosted a rousing game of Family Feud.
Heritage Clubs really is like family, and we proved that we are just as competitive as any real family.
Finally, Rick Pharr of CTN Travels brought in dancers and a singer from the Central Plains Dancers to show off an itinerary he has put together that includes the Red Earth Museum and Pow Wow.
The very talented singer explained the meaning of one of the songs, and gave a brief history of the development of the modern day pow wow.
There were examples of the straight dance, fancy dance, and we were all invited to participate in the round dance.
There were many more, including our visit to the Oklahoma History Museum sponsored by the Globus Family of Brands, which will be the topic of another post.


Thanks for stopping by. The coffee is always on.
