DMS is once again hosting a bus trip for club members and their families! I’ve chartered a bus for Sunday, March 18 to go to Washington D.C. where you may choose to visit the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, or any of the many Smithsonian museums (free admission) or national points of interest.

We have filled 45 seats available on the bus! If you find you need to cancel last minute, please contact Wendy ASAP, as we have a few folks on a waiting list. Your thoughtfulness would help another Member to two to join us.

The cost of this trip is $10 per person for members, their spouse and children. The trip will cost $25 for all others. Checks are payable to DMS but payment needs to be given to me, Wendy Sbriglia, at meetings or in the mail prior to the trip. My address is 1191 Bartville Rd.,
Christiana, PA 17509. If you have any questions my phone number is 610-593-0525.

We’ll meet at 7:45 am in the parking lot of the Pike Creek Shopping Center on Route 7 across from Goldey Beacom College and leave at 8:00 am. At 5:00 pm we’ll get back on the bus and we’ll leave DC at 5:15 (sooner if everyone is there). We should arrive back at the shopping center at 7:15 pm.

All meals are on your own. The Smithsonian has cafeterias in the Smithsonian Castle, the Natural History Museum, the Air & Space Museum, the American History Museum and probably some other museums.

Snacks will be provided on the bus. The club will bring along drinks, granola bars and small snack bags for the bus ride. I’ll bring restaurant phone numbers so, if you like, dinner reservations can be made at a restaurant near the shopping center we’re coming back to.
