PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Though the trip won’t take place until February 2011, plans are already under way for the annual trek by vehicle from Portage to Quebec organized by the Presque Isle Area Chamber of Commerce.

“Once again, plans are under way for the Maine-Quebec Caravan. The caravan will meet at Dean’s Motor Lodge for breakfast, then travel with a guide through the woods roads to the Quebec border,” said Theresa Fowler, executive director of PIACC.

“The cost is $30 per person, which includes the participant’s pass to the Quebec Carnival events,” said Fowler, adding, “any profit will be donated to charity.” Fowler did not specify which charitable organization might benefit from this year’s trip.

The caravan is scheduled for Feb. 11-13, with breakfast at Dean’s set for 6 a.m. on Friday and the group departing at 7 a.m.

“There will be a stop at Clayton Lake and a second stop at Montmagny where we will divide into two groups — one going to Levi and across on the ferry, the other taking the bridge into Quebec City,” said Fowler.

Registration forms are available at the chamber office or may be requested by phone or by e-mail. They must be returned no later than Jan. 21.

For more information or forms, call the chamber at 764-6561, e-mail Fowler at tfowler@pichamber.com, or write to: PIACC, 3 Houlton Rd., Presque Isle, ME 04769.
