The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter, and friendship creating an unforgettable show. A large cast, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers combine to make this a guaranteed smash you will enjoy.

There is no bus for this event. We will be driving there on our own.
Everyone in Dallas has heard of and loves Rose-Mary Rumbley, speaker-humorist-author-teacher-actress extraordinaire, who “performs” over 600 times a year; and TIAA is finally on her calendar (again!) So, let's listen to her and her stories and start 2020 off on the right foot. Since the Texins Fitness Center’s conference rooms will be undergoing renovations during the rest of 2019, we have reserved the comfortable S/C auditorium for this entertaining, free event. Rose-Mary will begin at 1:30 pm but please arrive early as everyone will need to clear security at the TI g
This adaptation of A Christmas Carol brings Dickens’ narrative to vivid life with sixteen musical numbers and spectacular effects that illuminate Ebenezer Scrooge’s time-traveling journey with the spirits one magical Christmas Eve.

Let’s leave city-life behind, hop on our TIAA bus and tour a working farm. You can ride on a horse-drawn hay wagon, watch a cow being milked, lend a hand at the old-fashioned timber-frame barn raising, see a master craftsman fashion a fine Windsor chair from a rough log, sample the tasty dishes from the food court, do some Christmas shopping of handcrafted gifts, or maybe lick a maple-pecan ice-cream cone.
The Peach Capital of Texas is celebrating the 35th Annual Parker County Peach Festival in downtown Weatherford so let’s go! They have more than 200 Arts, Craft, Food and Activity vendors.
