TRIPS AND OUTING
Monticello - Future trip in October 2020
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. Until the spread of the virus is under control, we have no plans for any excursions. Only when the virus is under control will we resume arranging trips.
There is one trip we are actively working on in the fall, Tuesday and Wednesday, October 27-28. Think about the beauty of the Shenandoah National Park nudging the Piedmont. The country side should be ablaze with color. Fields should be filled with bright orange pumpkins. On Tuesday, we’ll leave here for Monticello, having lunch (on our own) in Orange, VA. After lunch, we’ll enjoy a signature tour of Montpelier (Madison’s home) then drive on to our hotel and dinner (included). On Wednesday, we’ll have breakfast (included) before visiting Monticello (Jefferson’s plantation). We’ll tour the house and have time to explore the grounds before lunching at Michie Tavern (included). Then, we’ll head for home. Expect more information in the near future. Till then, keep calm, wash your hands and stay well!
TRIPS & OUTINGS COMMITTEE
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 trips organized by Trips and Outings, call the Chair, Carolyn Buttolph (703-842-3177) or email her (email@example.com.) 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.
