ANV has arranged for a park ranger guided tour of Glen Echo Park which will include a history of the park highlighting the involvement of Clara Barton in the early years and Chautauqua. We will also visit the Spanish Ballroom and the carousel, which is still open for rides. We will wrap up the tour with a 30-minute video, “Carousel Memories.”
There is a picnic area for those of us who want to stay to have lunch – you may bring your own picnic lunch or light fare is available at the cafe. On Fridays, the summer camps are in full swing and we might also be able to see a performance during lunch.
This tour is free and open to members and volunteers. We will arrange for carpools to Glen Echo Park when we know who will be joining us.
Please RSVP by July 22 by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the office at 703-509- 8057. Be sure to include the name of the event and number in your party.
