80th Birthday Bash update from Sue!

Sue Head ShotOur owner Sue Anderson Nicklin is on our 80th Birthday Bash tour and sent word from the road!

Here’s what Sue says:


My husband Nick & I arrived in beautiful Branson, set in the Ozark Mountains, on Sunday afternoon.  We met up with our tour manager Kim & her hubby Gary and her sister & brother-in-law, Karen & Mel.

Branson CVB had great packets for our guests that we counted out for our 8 coaches as well as checking on details at our host hotel, theaters & sightseeing venues! We are ready to meet our traveling friends and watched on GPS as our 8 groups arrived safely into Effingham, IL for their overnight.

Our Tour Directors all reported fun travelers enjoying the ride!

We are excited to see them tomorrow (Monday)! More to come!

Our charming Grand Country Resort had a busy day prepping for our 8 coaches afternoon arrival. All our Anderson guests enjoyed a fabulous buffet dinner at the Grand Country Buffet. No one comes away hungry here!

The lovely Welk Resort Theatre kicked off our first performance – Million Dollar Quartet. There is such fabulous talent here in the portrayal of Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis, Johnny Cash & Carl Perkins! Back “home” for a great night’s sleep!


Comfortable lovely weather today! Off to the Titanic this morning after a delicious buffet breakfast.

Such a moving story of bravery in the face of death. Our Titanic Friends even gave us a lovely recognition for our 80 years when we stopped at the Branson Craft Mall/Pickin

Porch Grill for lunch & shopping! This family-owned stop is amazing with local Ozark products, entertainment, good food and even handmade fudge!

Our afternoon show, the Comedy Jamboree, was hilarious – clean down home laughs with great music as well!

Florentina’s Ristorante or Montana Mikes Steakhouse hosted dinner tonight (our group split up) then we were off to the Haygoods! This amazing show of 6 brothers and sister was awesome from beginning to end! They are celebrating 25 years and their show is fresh and engaging, filled with high tech glitz. This talented family met our group for a Q & A after the show. A truly wonderful finale to a great day!
