Friends of Elder Travel


Pack your bags and enjoy exciting travel adventures with friends and fellow Elder supporters! 

Friends of Elder Travel was established in an attempt to raise money to support the Elder Scholarship Endowment and establish camaraderie among the Elder family.  Since 2008 the Friends of Elder have sponsored several successful trips including Hawaii, Alaska, Ireland, Bermuda, Costa Rica, and Southern Italy/Sicily.  Many other great trips are planned for this year and beyond and they are listed below.
