The St. Rita Empty Nesters will take a holiday trip to Mansfield Dec. 6 with family and friends. Ladies from surrounding suburbs and suburban churches are invited to join the ladies from St. Rita parish for this one-day "Holiday Festivities and Christmas Cheer" motor coach trip. Cost is $94 per person.

The group will visit Oak Hill Cottage, an 1847 Gothic home decorated in a Victorian style. The group will visit the Renaissance Theatre, a vintage 1928 theatre for a peek behind the scenes and hear about the celebrities who performed at this theatre. 

 A visit to Mansfield would not be complete without a stop at the Kingwood Garden Center’s spectacular holiday displays. Visit Malabar Farm, the wedding site of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Tour the house as it is decorated for the holidays. There will be a shopping stop at the Eatmor Bundt Company, where treats await. Lunch is included at the Der Dutchman Restaurant. 

 Deadline to register is Nov. 1. For more information contact Cindy Jeric, founder of St. Rita Empty Nesters at 330-963-0808 or email
