Wendy Farrance and Jarett Telesky, D.C.,
Davenport ’96, enjoy dinner on the Royal
Caribbean Independence of the Seas ship during
the Palmer Cruise 2010. Along with 12 hours
of continuing education, participants could
choose from great onboard activities and stops
in Belize and Mexico.
This winter, more than a hundred
Palmer alumni and friends took an
invigorating cruise to the eastern
Caribbean. With ports of call in Belize
City, Belize, and Costa Maya and
Cozumel, Mexico, the Palmer group of
travelers enjoyed various activities both
on- and off-ship. The event also offered
a meet-and-greet for spouses and
guests of D.C.s, an alumni reception,
and 12 hours of continuing education.
According to CE Events Coordinator
Tricia Jestel, “You just can’t beat our
travel events for a way to combine professional
camaraderie, continuing education,
and a family vacation; there is
always something for everybody.”
The Palmer Travel Event is becoming
an annual tradition with 2011
marking the fourth year running.
Spring 2011 will feature a landbased
resort on the Riviera Maya
coast of Mexico from late February
to early March.
“Our events attract alums from every
generation,” added Ms. Jestel. “We
hope the time is coming soon when
Palmer has to reserve the entire ship or
resort just for our travelers. It would
be a great venue for class reunions!”
