Join Us on the Alum Trip to San Diego!

October 19-23

The LLL Alumnae Association invites you to join us in San Diego, California from October 19-23, 2017 for the next LLL Alumnae Association Trip! San Diego is 6th on TripAdvisor’s Top 10 US Destinations and is often referred to as “America’s Finest City,” a favorite destination of visitors across the globe.

Come see and experience where the first European explorer, Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo, encountered San Diego Bay in 1542 and claimed the land for Spain. Another historic event occurred in 1769 when Padre (Father) Junípero Serra established the first California mission, San Diego de Alcala. Many travelers plan to stop at the California State Park in Old Town that features Mexican architecture, plazas, patios, and colorful gardens of the mid 1880s. History from the Wild West is waiting for you! There are many places to see including Old Town’s 17 historic points of interest and the finest museums, artisans, galleries, restaurants and shops. Other attractions: free live entertainment, mariachis, dancers and docents providing tours.

Known world-wide as one of the finest tourist destinations, San Diego is the home of the US Naval Base with the USS Midway Museum and the Star of India windjammer ship. It is also home of Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Coronado Island, Hotel Del Coronado, Little Italy, Seaside Village, harbor cruises, and beautiful sandy beaches. Balboa Park is the nation’s largest urban cultural park, ranked as one of the best in the world with several gardens and a variety of wonderful museums covering a range of topics including anthropology, local history, cultures of the world, photography, art, space and science.

The LLL Alumnae Association is pleased to offer a Tribute membership!

The Tribute Membership offers you the opportunity to connect in a special way with other Alumnae members, colleagues, family or cherished friends. Honor your favorite people with a Tribute Listing in Continuum as well as a Tribute Listing on the Alumnae website for one year. The listing provides the name and state or country of the person you want to honor, along with your name and state or country and up to 15 words telling everyone why you wish to honor this person.

With a Tribute Membership you receive all the benefits of regular Alumnae membership: a print copy of Continuum, published three times a year, a discount on LLL Alum trips, staying in touch with other Alum members, plus access to news and updates from LLLI if you choose to join the LLL Alumnae Association Yahoo Group. You can renew your Alumnae membership or become a Tribute Member at any time. Your Continuum subscription will be extended with a new expiration date.

The annual tribute membership fee is just $56 US dollars. You can be proud to know that $5 of every Tribute Membership will be donated directly to the LLL Breastfeeding Helpline-US. When mothers contact the Helpline, LLL Leaders personally answer their breastfeeding questions or concerns.

We hope you will consider this opportunity to support the LLL Alumnae Association as well as pay tribute to special friends. Membership helps to keep the organization moving ahead and helps you to stay connected to others who share a similar background in La Leche League. Become a member or renew.
