March for Life: Bus/Hotel options, van rental (from MCFL)

The following information comes from our friends at Massachusetts Citizens for Life. These are options for those who wish to take a bus to Washington, D.C. for the 41st Annual March for Life (http://www.marchforlife.org/march-with-us/details) and stay overnight at a hotel. MCFL says there will be a forthcoming list of red-eye bus options, so we will update this list when that is made available. Additionally, MCFL has secured a special rate for churches wishing to rent 15 passenger vans from VERC. You will see that note below as well.

If your church is sponsoring a bus, and would like us to post that information here, please send an email to ad-ne@ad-ne.org.
