Our Friends Are coming!

As most of you know, 14 visitors from Schwetzingen will be in Fredericksburg June 19-26. I hope as many of you as possible will be able to meet them when they’re here. They will be staying at Courtyard by Marriott on Caroline Street, arriving early Friday evening, June 19. We’ve planned an informal welcoming reception for them at the Marriott. Check the schedule below for times.
Marcel Rotter will be asking you to sign up for the potluck farewell picnic on Thursday, June 25. You’re welcome to participate in any of the events listed; there’s a charge for the trolley tour ($8) and for visiting Stratford Hall ($11).

Here’s the schedule for the visit:

7 p.m., welcome reception at Courtyard by Marriott

9 a.m., Civil War tour with Matt Kelly
6 p.m.,  dinner with local hosts; meet them in lobby at Marriott

2 p.m., Trolley Tour
