The Lansford American Legion Riders have announced a change in pick-up location for the free bus trip on Oct. 17.

The bus trip, which will travel to the USS Intrepid in New York City, is open to veterans from Schuylkill and Carbon counties.

Jim Wentworth, president of the American Legion Riders, said the new pick-up and drop off location will be at the Lansford Pool parking lot. He asks that all veterans who have signed up for the trip to meet at the pool parking lot, located on the west end of town, prior to the 8 a.m. departure time.

Wentworth explained that the reason for the location change is the lack of parking around the Lansford American Legion Post 123.

For more information or questions on the upcoming bus trip, call Wentworth at (570) 497-5733 or Joe Shamonsky at (570) 668-5299.
