ESFtrip_inlineHORSEHEADS, N.Y.—Seniors from churches associated with the Empire State Fellowship of Regular Baptist Churches enjoyed a trip to New York City Oct. 6 and 7. Fifty-three people joined Jim and Jeannie Vogel, ESF state representative and his wife, for the excursion.

Monday the group visited Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty amid the beautiful fall foliage and then had fun attending a Masquerade Murder Mystery Dinner. Tuesday’s visit to the 9/11 museum was sobering, Jeannie says, but the group also enjoyed Chelsea Market’s ethnic cuisine and an informative tour of Manhattan by a lecturer/guide from New York University.
