It is not too early to think about it–start planning NOW to attend our Annual Meeting on Saturday, October 31, 2009.

Our coach that day will be courtesy of Trans-Bridge Liness. Here’s a little history of Trans-Bridge. Founded in 1941 by A. J. Ferraro and other members of his family. The company operated local transit service as well as charters and tour excursions from Port Colden, New Jersey to Easton, Pennsylvania, serving Washington and Phillipsburg, New Jersey and eventually Allentown, Pennsylvania. Ferraro founded his Phillipsburg based lines when he took over the New Jersey Interurban Coach Company. In 1923 this company had purchased a trolley company the Northampton, Easton, and Washington Traction Company which was established in 1906. New Jersey Interurban eventually replaced its trolley cars with coaches which first operated on February 7, 1925. A. J. Ferraro had many years of experience in the bus business, beginning in 1915. He was a driver, manager, consultant, partner and owner of various bus companies in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.

Not sure where our trip will be to as of this date–but that decision will be made shortly.

Please take the time now to block out that day and be with us for our Annual Meeting and Dinner.
