Washington Monument Reopening Ceremony

The Washington Monument is finally reopening, after repairs caused by the earthquake about 2-1/2 years ago. There will be a reopening ceremony, followed by tours*.

For those of you who don't want a tour, (or don't get there in time to get a ticket,) we can still attend the reopening ceremony, then spend the day out on the mall, picnic, nearby museums, etc.

Schedule of official events:
(Try to arrive about an hour earlier than the times shown, since it'll probably be very crowded, due to being tourist season.)
8:30am - Tour tickets become available (first-come, first-served basis)
10:00am - Reopening Ceremony starts
1:00pm - Tours* start

More information about the construction and reopening can be found here.

*Tickets, which will probably be free, are required.

      I know, but there are some members who miss most of our meetups, and could make it to this, because they work on weekends.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
