Jeanne and Willard Treacy are home after a two week trip to Europe. They landed in Amsterdam and visited France and Belgium, travelling by rental car. They flew home from London after spending the last 2 days of their travels there. While away, they visited Vimy Ridge, Ypres and other destinations of interest in these regions to learn more about World War 1 history. One of Willard’s great-uncles, Phil Rogers, fought in the war and it was an area they have wanted to travel to. This year’s early harvest allowed them to make hasty plans and travel this fall.
