 TRAVEL CLUB
 
The Groves Travel Club is one of the largest and most active groups in The Groves. The Club is a 100% volunteer organization with over 300 members. The Club has a meeting each month (no meetings in December, June or July) where members hear about all the current trip offerings in a setting where you can talk travel with your fellow members while sharing light refreshments. The Club is a great way to meet with old friends and to meet new ones. Multiple trips are offered every month that vary from day trips to overnight trips to extended trips both in the United States and abroad. There is something for everyone. Join us. We welcome you.
 
MEMBERSHIP
 
Travel Club membership is open to both residents and non-residents. To Renew your membership or become a Travel Club Member, complete the Travel Club Registration Form and mail the signed form with your check for $5.00 to the address on the form.

  • Tuesday, October 24, 2017 ON YOUR FEET! Straz Center 7:30 pm
    From their humble beginnings in Cuba, Emilio and Gloria Estefan came to America and broke through all barriers to become a crossover sensation at the very top of the pop music world.  But just when they thought they had it all, they almost lost everything.  From international superstardom to life-threatening tragedy, ON YOUR FEET! takes you behind the music and inside the real story of this record-making and groundbreaking couple who, in the face of adversity, found a way to end up on their feet.
    Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots), with choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillio (Jersey Boys) and an original book by Academy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman), ON YOUR FEET! features some of the most iconic songs of the past quarter-century and one of the most inspiring stories in music history.
