Looking forward to the 14 September 2014 program and would like to "meet" any others attending this session. I am interested in Colonial History and this will be my first visit to Virginia. I live on the west coast.

My husband and I are attending this program April 28. Who else?

We also are attending Monumental DC the week of May 6. I was wondering if anyone else is doing these two programs back to back.

To anyone interested: I am arriving at the Newport News airport about 1:10pm on Sunday, Oct 21. I have arranged with Marrow Transport for round trip transportation to the hotel. The round trip cost is $146.60.This is an all-inclusive price for the vehicle. So, if anyone coming on this adventure wants to join me, feel free. Just email me to let me know AND call Marrow Transport at 757-564-5466.
