Red Rock Record

In November, 20 members of the Martinez Senior Center took a whirlwind 1,325-mile road trip across Southern California and into Nevada -- on American Stage Coach Lines -- stopping at myriad places, including Red Rock Canyon outside of Las Vegas, where they caught up with the community news in the Pleasant Hill/Martinez Record. Other points of interest included the Reedly Opera House for a performance, Tachi Palace Hotel Casino for a one-night stay, the Golden Nugget, and tours of the Ethel M chocolate and Sun Maid Raisin factories.

It doesn't matter if your time away is spent across the Bay or across the country -- remember to pack the Record to keep up with news of the community, and then show your neighbors where you have been. Email in .jpg format to
