Join us for dinner and a tour of D.C.’s Monuments. The cost for this event is only $50 and guests are welcome. The Capital City Tours bus holds 54 of us, so we plan on filling that up. If we get beyond 54 signing up, it will be filled on a first come, first serve basis with a waiting list beginning after the first 54. If we have a total of 75 or more wanting to go, we can add a second bus. The bus will pick us up by 5:30 and return us by 10:30.
