The Fellowship Committee’s new “Day-Tripper Excursions” are designed for those with flexible schedules. If you can recall the Beatles 1965 song, you might be a Day-Tripper. On November 8, this informal group will visit Hillwood Museum and Gardens in Washington, DC. to see a special exhibit, Faberge’ Rediscovered. There’s plenty of free parking. Entrance fees are $15–$20. A cafe is available for lunch. Hillwood Docent, Janice Brambilla will help lead our tour. All are welcome to come along. We carpool from St. John’s Church, usually grabbing some lunch. More great excursions to follow. You’ve “got a good reason” to join in the fun. Learn details about upcoming excursions HERE.
