For those of you in Northern Virginia, we're pleased to announce that our spring picnic is to be held at the beautiful Colvin Run Mill park in Great Falls! Join us on Sunday, June 3 for an afternoon of food, family, and fun. Those who register and attend in period attire will be offered a tour of the working mill (which will be grinding grain the day of our visit) for free. Period attire, however, is not required to attend the picnic and regular admission will apply for those who wish to attend in modern clothing and take a tour of the mill. Be sure to register to let us know that you'll be attending by visiting the event listing here.
The other event that we've added is a group outing to see the Virginia Museum of Fine Art's new exhibition, Napoleon: Power and Splendor. This exhibition features items from the Imperial Household shedding new light on how Napoleon's image was crafted. Registration for this event is required and the museum has given us permission to attend in period attire if we so choose. VMFA members can also register with the group at no charge provided that they submit their membership number at the time of their registration. Join the group to see what promises to be a feast for an early 19th century enthusiast's eyes by visiting the event listing here.
