Washington D.C Trip 2016 new

Washington D.C. Discovery   

Come along with District 5 and have the time of your life! As you celebrate your Norwegian heritage, you    will also be learning about American history.  At the Smithsonian Institution, you will be challenged to look for    works by Norwegian artists.  A behind the scenes tour will expose you to items that are normally stored in a  vault! There will be a focus on Norwegian influences on U.S. culture. Our hope is to visit with the Norwegian ambassador, Kåre R. Aas. Walk the hallways of the Capitol, where current and past politicians have changed      the world. Join friends on a cruise up the Potomac River.  Bring a Viking hat to add a little festivity.  Plan to get  down on the dance floor, as a D.J. plays your CD requests.  Network with youth and family members from District 3.   A visit to George WashingtonÂ’s estate, Mt. Vernon, will give you a glimpse into the life of our first presidentÂ….
