This made the university's 10-day trip built around the World War II history of Normandy, France, extremely special. The group also spent three days in Paris. "We organized a special visit to the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer. During the tour, the group was hon- ored to visit the gravesites of three of our own alumni who are interred there. It was a moving experience for all present. One of our travelers brought a small amount of Georgia's red clay to sprinkle upon the hallowed ground of that national treasure." — PHIL COLLINS, DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT, CORPS OF CADETS TRIP: Paris and Normandy TOUR OPERATOR: Collette DATE: July 2014 university of north georgia alumni DAHLONEGA, GEORGIA The Pretty Big Kids Club of PBK Bank explored Alaska's scenic outdoors on a 14-day tour and cruise. The group saw Alaskan beauty up close on a cruise of Kenai Fjords National Park and a motorcoach ride through Denali National Park. The tour also intro- duced the group to Alaskan culture in Talkeetna, Juneau and Haines. "The cruise was breathtaking. We saw humpback whales, seals, eagles and so much more. It was beautiful to see the whales jump- ing out of water. The whole trip was wonderful. It was easy to understand why so many fall in love with Alaska and want to stay. It will definitely be a trip that will be repeated by our group." — AMANDA COFFEY, RETAIL BANKING MANAGER TRIP: Nature's Best: Alaska TOUR OPERATOR: Globus DATE: August 2016 PBK bank STANFORD, KENTUCKY
