Also 20 years ago on July 10 the Canton South AARP went on an outing to Erie, PA. They visited the Wegman's Super Market Place, Pulako's 926 Chocolates, had dinner at Union Station, went on Little Toot Sightseeing Cruise, Presque Isle Tour and Blair Outlet. It was a beautiful day and everyone had a very enjoyable time.
