Temporary Whip City Travelers Parking - St. John’s Lutheran Church


  • Due to the limited parking at City Hall, all trips through the Whip City Travelers are now parking at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 60 Broad Street. Church officials ask that you park as far to the left as possible so not to disturb other activities going on at the church.

Open & Closed for Business - Reminder


The Whip City Travelers volunteers are available to collect trip money and distribute tickets on scheduled days only.
Should these days and times change, it will be published in the newsletter, online and posted at the Senior Center.
Please consider calling the Senior Center at (413) 562-6435 before dropping off a travel club payment to be certain that a volunteer is available. The Whip City Travelers are a separate entity from the Council on Aging / Senior Center.
The staff does not have access to the travel club books and records and therefore cannot assist with transactions when the travel club is not in the office.
