Bath — Senior citizens from St. George and Thomaston traveled by school bus to the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath for a tour of the museum June 29.

The summer sun illuminated a steel sculpture that outlines the six-masted Wyoming, the largest vessel launched at the site along the Kennebec River. After the museum visit, the tour group enjoyed lunch at the Taste of Maine restaurant in Woolwich.

The trip was the first of this summer’s excursions offered by the towns of St. George and Thomaston to their senior citizens. Others include taking in a Sea Dogs game, a lighthouse cruise, a tour of Union’s wineries and the annual pre-holiday shopping trip to the Maine Mall.
