Meet Our Day Trip Planners!

Emily Webster & Kate Roach plan and lead our wonderful day trips!

Emily Webster retired as the Program Director for the Sebastopol Area Senior Center four years ago. Emily is excited to return along with Kate Roach to organize and lead the monthly trips for our Senior Center. This was always the most favorite part of her job.

She loves getting out and about in this wondrous Bay Area and is so happy to assist others to get out of their homes to enjoy the magic this area offers. Kate is so excited about the wonderful day trips that are right here in our backyard.
