The Kingsport Senior Center will be taking a trip to Barter Theatre for Steel Magnolias on Thursday, June 14, 2018 from 10:30am – 6:00pm. A heart-warming portrait of friendship and love is the basis for this much-loved show. There isn’t a bond quite like the one between southern women in a beauty shop. In a small southern town, six women gather in Truvy’s Beauty Salon to share gossip, laughter, recipes and beauty secrets, but they end up sharing so much more. Humor and heartbreak shine through the women’s underlying strength, which makes these characters genuinely touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in the good times and bad. The trip is $30/per person and lunch is on his or her own at Milano’s Italian Cuisine. Sign up April 23.
The Center will be taking a trip to Sierra Nevada Brewing Company & Lunch on Friday, July 13, 2018 in Mills River, NC from 8:00am – 4:30pm. The trip costs $20/per person (this includes tour and tasting cost & transportation) with the lunch cost on their own. Each member will have a 90-minute Private Heritage Tour that includes a presentation and a walkthrough of the facility to follow the hops-to-brews process. Peek into the copper kettles, smell the hops, see the assembly line and end with a tasting of 8 beers next to the fermenters. One tour for 20 members and 1 KSC staff is at 10:00am and the next tour begins at 10:30am with the remaining 20 members and the other KSC staff person. After the tour, each person can enjoy lunch on their own to enjoy their massive restaurant, a showpiece for the brewery with 400 indoor sears, a big outdoor dining terrace, 23 beer taps and a chef-driven farm-to-table menu that complements their craft beer.
Come along for a peaceful OTLB- TN Riverboat Cruise on Friday, August 10, 2018 from 9:00am – 4:30pm. The trip is $38 (transportation & lunch included).

While cruising, you will enjoy one of the most breathtaking views in Knoxville. Not only will you see some of the history of the river, you will most certainly be relaxed by the river’s beauty.
