DC Trip update:
We have made the decision to cancel the DC trip due to low sign-ups for the trip. We could not sustain quality performances by our groups with the numbers we had for sign-ups. Full refunds will be issued by the tour company, checks will be sent out on December 16th.
We are looking ahead to Spring 2018 for a trip to NYC.
