Ursula Brown is hostess on the Rollin' Garden Party Bus Trips. It's her pleasure to welcome party-goers on the bus and assist the Tour Leader, Mary, in any way she can. She says: "I enjoy preparing 'party favors' for our guests. These are bags containing snacks, napkins, tissues, hand wipes, and whatever might be on sale, to make the trip more comfortable. Our guests are the nicest bunch of folks anyone could ask for and I enjoy my role tremendously."
