The October 2011 Event
Our trip to the Reagan Presidential Library was fantastic. We really have to give our event coordinator, Tina Wright, a special thank you for putting this together. All of Tina's events are enjoyable, but this was stupendous. The event started with members being directed to VIP parking in a "Mercedes-Benz only" section of the employee lot. After we were all gathered together, we were broken up into three "tour sized" groups. Each of the groups were led by a docent supplied by The Library. Many of us have previously visited the Reagan Library, but attending with a guide is a completely different experience. The docents recounted the historical background behind various exhibits, so that they could be viewed as intricate parts of a story. The docents were so good, they made waiting in line to board Air Force One interesting. The two hour tour seemed to go by in a flash. After the tour, many of us got together for lunch at the library. It was a great time to catch up with old friends. Afterwards, some of us went back through the library for a second viewing.
Here are some photos from the outing.
