We are a Travel Group, operating within First United Methodist Church - Denton, that travels locally, regionally, and internationally. We hold five membership meetings each year, usually the second Monday of January, March, May, September and November. Meetings are held at FUMC-Denton in the Monroe Building and include a pot luck luncheon and a short meeting where future trips are announced and discussed.
Membership dues are $2.00 per person annually. First year's dues are $5.00 per person which pays for a Tripper name badge. FUMC-Denton membership is not a requirement for membership in the Trippers Travel Group. However, membership in Trippers or a signed waiver is required to travel with us. This is necessary for insurance purposes. You may join at any meeting or click on the following form to print and mail to Marion Scott.
