You’ve never had a ride on the RRTA (Red Rose Transit Authority)? Here’s your chance. First head down to the Queen Street station and get your free senior citizen bus pass, then show up either Monday or Tuesday and join other Downtowners for a ride to Lititz.
Upon arrival in Lititz, you will be greeted by Downtowner Henry Biedrzycki who will welcome you to his new hometown and suggest places to visit and popular restaurants for lunch. Henry will then take you to Bunyaad Rugs, one of the top stores on the east coast for fair trade hand knotted rugs, where you will be met by owners of the store who will share their stories. (If you are planning to purchase a rug, you may want to take out a home equity loan before visiting the store!)
After visiting the rug store, you are free to visit the shops of Lititz, enjoy lunch at one of the fine eateries and catch one of the afternoon busses (1:45, 2:50. 3:35) back to Lancaster. Registration limited to twelve persons each day to avoid overwhelming the regular riders.
Downtowners members must login (upper right) to register for this event.
