Local checks NYC off bucket list
Local resident and two-time cancer survivor Cyndi Cashman traveled in early April with a group of 31 ladies aged 13-83 on a trip to New York City, an item Cashman said has been on her bucket list a long time. As she talked to friends and family about the wish, she found others who were also interested to see and experience the city, so they arranged a first-ever Girlfriends Getaway with help from a travel-agent friend at Suntime Travel in Prescott where Cashman owns and operates a hair salon. The group saw classics such as Times Square, Central Park, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, the 9/11 memorial, shopping districts and the Broadway play "Wicked." With a family connection to one of the women in the group, local TV news celebrity Belinda Jensen and her mother joined the trip for a few days, too.
