Dear Friends,

I  hope you are well. The events of the last six months have kept us wondering what each new day will bring as we navigate through uncharted territory together and apart. As we enter a new season, we know it is still important to be careful in order to stay safe. Although most travel is still pretty much on hold, I have decided to begin again with a few short trips and an opportunity to enjoy the crisp air and foliage of autumn.

Please join me the afternoon of Thursday, September 24, on our first EXCURSION since February, for a visit to the exceptional BRANDYWINE RIVER MUSEUM in Chadds Ford, about 45 minutes from Philadelphia. This museum is known for its collections of American Art, particularly works of Pennsylvania and Brandywine area artists, as well substantial holdings of three generations of the Wyeth Family. On view are three special exhibits: VOTES FOR WOMEN: A VISUAL HISTORY; WITNESS TO HISTORY: SELMA PHOTOGRAPHS of STEPHEN SOMERSTEIN; and BETSY JAMES WYETH: A TRIBUTE.

The trip is limited to 24 travelers in order to practice proper social distancing and masks are required at all times while on the motor coach and in the Museum. THE COST IS $65 including entrance to the Museum. Departures from RITTENHOUSE SQUARE and CITY LINE are available as on all of our EXCURSIONS. You will find guidelines and protocols for safety on the websites of the BRANDYWINE RIVER MUSEUM www.brandywine.org and our excellent motor coach partner HAGEY COACH AND TOURS www.hagey.com
YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY ARE MY PRIMARY CONCERN!

I realize we are close to departure date, however, the very relevant and timely VOTES FOR WOMEN Exhibit is closing September 27. If you are not yet ready to travel, I do understand. I look forward to seeing you when you are ready. For those of you who are able to join me next week, it will be wonderful to see you again. For more information please call me at 215 732 8487 or 215 738 4500 or send me an email to ellenkay@prodigy.net
Reservations must be confirmed with payment no later than MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21.

Stay well and safe until we meet again,

Ellen
