By Staff | Apr 30, 2011

The Shepherd University Scarborough Society and Foundation will sponsor a bus tour to the National Archives in Washington, D.C., June 16. The bus will depart from Shepherd University at 9:30 a.m. and return at approximately 6 p.m.

The trip will include lunch at McCormick and Schmick’s restaurant. The group will be able to examine the historical documents on permanent display and the new exhibit “What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam?”, which examines how the federal government has affected what Americans eat. In addition, Dr. Richard Hunt, director of the Center for Legislative Archives, will take the group members into the private legislative vault to see originals of great American documents. The cost of the tour, including lunch, is $75 per person. The tour is open to the public. Reservations are needed by June 1.

To reserve a seat, send a check to the Shepherd University Foundation at P.O. Box 5000, Shepherdstown, WV 25443-5000.
