Hackettstown, N.J. – Centenary College’s Office of Alumni Relations has opened its Alumni Travel Program to France to the general public. The trip will be leaving from John F. Kennedy International Airport on November 1, 2014 and will return on November 8, 2014. Interested travelers must sign-up for this exciting opportunity by July 3, 2014. Register early as space is limited.

The air and land price for this program is set for $2,999 per person for double occupancy. The tour includes round-trip airfare, transport by luxury motorcoach with a driver/guide, hotel accommodations, full breakfasts, three dinners and many highlights, including a Seine River Cruise, a trip to the Eiffel Tower, and tours of the following areas: Paris, Versailles, Auvers-sur-Oise and Normandy.
This trip is also timely as 2014 is the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.  A full day will be spent in Normandy.  Famed for its Calvados, Normandy saw some of the most severe fighting during WWII.  The excursion will include a visit to the American Cemetery at St. Laurent-sur-Mer, overlooking Omaha Beach.  It will include a trip to Omaha Beach Memorial Museum, as well as the quiet seaside town of Arromanches, if time permits.

“We are excited to be hosting another alumni travel event for Centenary graduates, as well as members of the public,” says Deana Cynar, Director of Alumni Relations at Centenary College. “I am sure all who can experience this trip will enjoy this opportunity.”
