Wheatfield Seniors are open again and have announced its upcoming slate of planned trips:

•“All Wright Day” – 8:30 a.m. to 4-30 p.m., June 16: This tour centers on one of Buffalo’s most famous architectural contributors, Frank Lloyd Wright, and his impact on the area. The Darwin Martin House is rated as Wright’s finest example of Prairie-style architecture. The Fontana Boat House, designed by Wright for the University of Wisconsin rowing team – but never built until on the shore of the Black Rock Canal and Niagara River – is used by area competitive rowing teams. Graycliff, the Darwin Martin family summer home, located on the shores of Lake Erie, features Wright’s natural architecture. Trip cost is $100 and includes lunch at the Parkside Meadow.

•“A Day at the Lake” – 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 10: The day begins at the Grape Discovery Center where patrons will learn why WNY is an ideal place for growing grapes, sample some of the local wines, and see chef Tim prepare a dish of his choice. Aboard the Chautauqua Belle, hear the history and tales of the lake while on a steamboat adventure. Included onboard is a barbecue chicken dinner. Visit a candy factory and get a behind-the-scenes look at how some of the specialty candy is made. Finish the day at the local craft brewery.

•“Queen Esther” at the Millennium Theater, Lancaster, Pennsylvania – Oct. 19-21: This three-day trip includes “Chalk Talk,” a background story of a former member of the old order Mennonite sect; Landis Valley Museum; Kitchen Kettle Village; and a performance of “Queen Esther” at the Sight and Sound Theater.
