NEXT PROGRAM NOV 13
Please join us SUNDAY November 13th as we travel to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia. We will start our visit with fitness hiking the Murphy-Chambers Farm (easy to moderate) trail which takes us through fields and woods allowing us to see views of the Shenandoah River and old Civil War cannons. Next, we'll tour through historic Lower Town to experience 19th century architecture, the old confectionary, boarding house and John Brown's fort. We will order and eat our lunch in one the town's restaurants. After lunch, we will walk across the Potomac River on a pedestrian bridge to take in more of the beautiful mountain and river views. If time permits, we may be able to shop in some of the old antique stores so bring some spending money!
