Mark your calendars now for September 23 - 27. Things are beginning to fall into place for our Fall trip to Washington, D.C. We will plan to tour the Capitol, the Library of Congress, hopefully the White House and perhaps the National United Methodist Church and other places related to our Methodist heritage as time allows. We will have free time allotted for you to visit museums of interest to you and a brief synopsis of the available museums will be provided for you. We will find our way to the National Cathedral, maybe Ford's Theater and definitely will do a tour of the Monuments. We will plan to tour Arlington on our departure day. This trip will be packed with fun and fellowship. I am on a quest to find interesting restaurants for us to share our evening meal. I am going to roughly estimate the cost of the trip at less than $250 per person based on double occupancy. This price includes your room and breakfast each morning. After I get a count on how many will be going I will let you know about how much the fuel for the bus will be. Anyone who is interested needs to contact me immediately to give me their information that Senator Burr's office has requested in order to be able to join us on the White House tour. Right now I am asking for a $100 per person deposit due by August 1 to Sara Lawrence. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. I am looking forward to hearing from a ton of people. Let's see how full we can get the bus!
