Seven local high school graduates participated in an EF Educational Tours European adventure this summer. The group spent 12 days touring Greece, Italy and Spain with their group leader, retired teacher Patrick Joyce, Moosic. Among the many sites the group explored were Athens’ ancient Acropolis, several Greek Isles, Florence’s regal Palazzo Vecchio and colorful Duomo, the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, Barcelona’s playful Gaudi architecture and Gothic Quarter. The grads agreed that it was the trip of a lifetime.

2014 and 2015 graduation trips are now forming. The trips are open to all local graduates and are not affiliated with any particular school.
