We've added a couple of new events to our roster for 2018 and we hope that you'll be able to join us. In April, we've been invited to two different historic sites to help bring the properties to life for visitors. On April 21, Sanford, North Carolina's "House in the Horseshoe" site will be hosting an event dubbed "An Afternoon at Retreat" featuring a host of early 19th century activities. The following Saturday, April 28, Preservation Virginia's Bacon's Castle has requested the RSV be present for a "garden party" event as they help wrap up Historic Garden Week. Those in attendance will be demonstrating games, helping to serve visitors tea and cookies, and otherwise adding to the historic atmosphere. Please visit the Events page to get more details and to register for each of these free events.
We have also updated our UK Group Trip page to reflect a new pricing schedule. Rather than having multiple payments due throughout the year-and-a-half run-up to the trip, we've reached an agreement with the tour company to allow for the full payment to be due 8 weeks in advance of arrival. Those wishing to go on the trip need only put down an initial deposit of £250 by May 31, 2018 to reserve your space and no other payments will be due until the final balance becomes payable on April 15, 2019. For more information or to make your deposit, please be sure to visit our UK Group Trip page and register for the event to get updates directly via e-mail.
