SC Senior Lawyers Travel Again—To Croatia!

"It was a great trip. Memories of the enormous limestone walls, churches, olive trees, grapevines and beautiful cities still linger. We now say “Zivili” when we clink our glasses, the Croatian toast encompassing the good wishes of its people: “Be filled with life!” Best of all was the companionship of our fellow travelers, the insight and friendliness of our guide, the attentiveness of the staff onboard, and the astute navigation of our capable Captain." - Nancy S. Layman, Columbia
