Wednesday, June 21, 2017, 9:15 AM - 2:00 PM
On Wednesday, June 21, Young At Heart will be traveling to Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site (7400 Grant Rd). Ulysses S. Grant is known as the victorious Civil War general who saved the Union and was the 18th President of the United States. He first met Julia Dent, his future wife, at her family home, named White Haven. We will watch a 22-minute film, “Ulysses S. Grant: A Legacy of Freedom,” then be guided out to the historic house, White Haven, for a 30-minute docent-led tour. The house is not air conditioned to dress appropriately, depending on the weather. Following the tour, we will have the opportunity to visit the museum and do a self-guided tour for about 30 minutes (a wheelchair will be available, if needed). We will meet at church at 9:15 am for our 10:00 tour; a van will also be available and we will carpool if necessary. Afterward we will travel to Subway (10052 Gravois Rd) for lunch, which will be paid for by the church.
Sign up in the Crossection at the Special Events table by Sunday, June 18. Plan for a day of fun, learning, and great fellowship!
