Jaunters

September 21, 2017: 9:00 am -

One of our most popular interest groups! Day trips with the Jaunters provide a moveable feast of countryscape and cityscape within the Niagara Region and beyond. Join us on the third Thursday of each month for historical, cultural and artistic experiences. Members can attend any Jaunters outing as destinations are announced each month on our website. Occasionally, guests are welcome.
