Neighbors and friends from Crosswinds Subdivision joined together March 31-April 4 for an enjoyable bus trip to Washington, D.C., at the peak of the Cherry Blossom Festival. Their trip included a visit to Arlington Cemetery for the changing of the guard and viewing of the Confederate Dead Memorial. They enjoyed a walking tour around the White House, a visit to the national monuments and memorials, the National Cathedral, the Smithsonian Museums, and the Capitol. They also explored Mount Vernon. Pictured in front of the White House, from left, are Phil and Pat Reilly, George and Peggy Chapman, Elaine and Bob Russell.
