Connecting to the Past has arranged and paid for transportation to and from Dearborn. We will travel via Lakefront Lines.

Participants will be responsible for their own transportation to Wooster on Monday to meet the bus and on Thursday and Friday to get to meetings at the Tri-County ESC in Wooster.


Connecting to the Past has provided participants with a stipend to cover meals or provided the meals to them, as the case may be.

The Schedule of Events indicates when meals are "on your own," which is the time to  use your stipend.
