West Plains Bank & Trust Company

West Plains, Missouri

Trip: Pacific Northwest and Canadian Rockies

Tour Operator: Sunrise Tours

Date: August 2015

The Go Club traveled for 12 days from Vancouver, Canada, down to Leavenworth, Washington. On the trip, they beheld several national parks in the Canadian Rockies, as well as Glacier National Park.

“I think one of the highlights of our trip was riding on a snow coach out to Athabasca Glacier, then walking on the actual glacier and drinking the water. It was amazing. Everyone also enjoyed riding on the Red Jammers as we toured Glacier National Park in Montana along the Going-to-the-Sun Road. We got to see where the forest fires had been burning and where some were still burning.”

— Cheryl Finley, Senior Customer Service Representative and Go Club Director

Nodaway Valley Bank Ambassadors

St. Joseph, Missouri

Trip: Spectacular South Africa

Tour Operator: Collette

Date: November 2014

For 18 days, the Nodaway Valley Bank Ambassadors group explored cities and parks across South Africa with major stops including Johannesburg, Knysna, Cape Town and Victoria Falls. The group spotted African wildlife on safaris at Kruger National Park and Featherbed Nature Reserve.

“We got to see great mountain scenery, beautiful coastlines and the wildlife in the Kruger National Park, where the group saw the Big Five. The part of the trip that the group still talks about was the optional tour to Victoria Falls and the Elephant Safari.”

— Sheri McCoy, Assistant Vice President and Ambassadors Director
