BUS TRANSPORTATION, SATURDAY, MARCH 8:
There are several options available for students, so please read every option before making a reservation. Please select only one option, so your needs are not counted twice. This is important so we can request the appropriate number of buses for each service. We will do our best to accommodate all requests, but please note that space is limited with both the number of buses, as well as physical space at each service.
Registration will close once space is full.
Option #1 - James' Service: This option is to request transportation to the service for James Adams in St. Paul, Minnesota. These buses WILL NOT transport students to Paxton’s service in Stillwater. Buses will depart from the front of Willis at 9:30 a.m. and return to Carleton immediately following the service. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED, BUT OUR THOUGHTS ARE WITH YOU.
Option #2 - Paxton's Service: This option is to request transportation to the service for Paxton Harvieux in Stillwater, MN. Buses will depart from the front of Willis at 1:00 p.m. and return to Carleton immediately following the service. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED, BUT OUR THOUGHTS ARE WITH YOU.
Option #3 - Both Services: This option is for students wishing to attend services for both James AND Paxton. Buses will depart from the front of Willis at 9:30 a.m., travel to the service in St. Paul, then to the service in Stillwater. Buses will return to Carleton immediately following the service in Stillwater. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED, BUT OUR THOUGHTS ARE WITH YOU.
