TRIPS AND OUTING
WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR TRIPS?
A primary concern of Goodwin House is the welfare of its residents and staff. The Coronavirus (covid-19) has introduced complexity into all travel plans. We have had to cancel all excursions.
Still, hope springs eternal. Remember the trip to Winterthur and Longwood Gardens that we had to cancel last Spring? It’s back! We hope to visit Winterthur and Longwood Gardens on an overnight trip, May 12-13 (Wednesday and Thursday) in 2021. Because of social distancing, the trip is limited to just 25 residents – and it is already fully subscribed. But a Wait List is available!
Of course, these are our hopes. By early next year, we again will have to make a decision. If the pandemic is still rampant, we will have to cancel. But we can continue to hope.
As in the past, resident Carolyn Buttolph (Ext. 3177 or email email@example.com) will be coordinating the trip.
On the drawing board is a Fall 2021 trip – and it is more likely to be realized. The pandemic should be under control by then. In late October, the country side should be ablaze with color. On day one, we’ll leave here for Monticello, having lunch (on our own). After lunch, we’ll enjoy a signature tour of Montpelier (Madison’s home) then drive on to our hotel and dinner. On day two, after breakfast we’ll visit Monticello (Jefferson’s home). After lunch we’ll leave for home.

TRIPS & OUTINGS COMMITTEE
(Note: The committee is not meeting at this time.) The Committee meets the third Monday of each month at 3:30 PM in the Board Room. All interested residents are invited to attend.
For questions about overnight trips, call Carolyn Buttolph (703-842-3177) or email her (firstname.lastname@example.org.) (Planning of day trips by Trips & Outings Committee is on hold.) Other committees as well as staff also plan trips to provide residents continuing opportunities to learn and to enjoy the world outside our walls. Trips organized by other committees and departments can be found on the Coming Events page.
Residents of GHBC and GHA as well as members of Goodwin House At Home and the Priority Club are part of our GH Family. Families do things together, and friends of family can be invited to join the group. We usually plan several Family trips each year.
