It’s only September but eighth grade students at the Cardington-Lincoln Junior High School are looking towards May, 2017 as they plan their trip to Washington DC.
The trip, a regular event for many years, will run from May 10-13.
Parents, teachers and students met recently to plan the itinerary that will include many of the memorials and museums in Washington. Continuing the past custom they will lay a wreath at the Vietnam Wall and WWII Memorial/Korean War Memorial.
There will be two buses transporting the students. The first payment was due Sept. 20. Those interested can contact Donna Kill or Troy King, co-advisors for the trip.
There were 80 students taking the trip in May, 2016. They toured the White House, Mount Vernon and the Washington National Mall Monuments and the Washington National Cathedral.
Laying the wreath at the Vietnam Memorial were Abigail Devore, Reanna Roth and Elizabeth Horton. Emily Benson, Casey Bertke, Laney Sherbourne and Nick McAvoy laid the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
The wreaths were made by Shirley Dendinger, a member of American Legion Auxiliary Unit 97, Cardington.
