Previous Activities

On September 24-29, 2010, we toured the East Coast. We visited West Point Academy, the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park, the homes of FDR and Teddy Roosevelt, Connecticut mountains, Mystic Seaport, historic villages, a maritime museum, and more. And we found time to shop, too!

Dinner at the Middleburg Steak House

In August 2006, we gathered for an evening of good food and fellowship. We dined at the unique Middleburg Steak House, which is in a beautiful, old building with a large fireplace and rough, hand-cut logs, creating a rustic, cozy atmosphere for a delicious dinner.

Day Trip to Rose Hill

In June 2006, we took a day trip to the Duplin Winery, in Rose Hill, NC. We enjoyed a day of fun, food, and fellowship. We viewed a film about winemaking, toured the winery, had lunch at the Bistro Restaurant, and did a little shopping.

Trip to Tidewater, Virginia

We took a trip to Virginia May 10-13 to see the following sites in the Norfolk area:

  • the Chrysler Museum
  • the Nauticus Museum
  • the Maritime Museum
  • the Battleship Wisconsin.

We took a lunch cruise of the harbor and saw the Navy's Atlantic Fleet. We went to the Norfolk Botanical Garden and took some time for shopping and casual touring. On the way back, we had time to stop at Smithfield, Virginia, for a tour of Bacon?s Castle, a Jacobean-Style house built in 1665.

Day Trip to Concord, NC

Our first day trip of 2006 was Friday, April 7, when we toured Concord, NC.

Our first stop was the beautiful Memorial Gardens at the First Presbyterian Church of Concord. After lunch at Emma's, we visited the Cannon Memorial Library to see a mural painted in 1939 by James McLean depicting the early history of Concord.

We also drove down Union Street to see some of the older homes in the town. We finished the day with a stop at the Cabarrus Creamery and Shops for ice cream and shopping.

Annual Christmas Lunch

We have an annual Christmas Lunch at the Cardinal Club in downtown Raleigh. Plan to join us this year for fun, fellowship, good food, door prizes, entertainment, and some surprises. The cost of the meal, including tax and tip, will be about $20. We hope to offer a van service to Glenaire, as in years past. We will publish a definite date and time in November in the Church newsletter.

If you want to help with the planning of this event, call Emalyne Walls or Glenn Rose.

Annual Christmas Shopping Jaunt

Each year in early November, Adult Fellowship makes a trek to Bear Creek, NC for shopping at Bear Creek and Southern Supreme Gourmet Specialties. We do our shopping for Thanksgiving and Christmas gifts and cakes. We also enjoy each other?s company, including lunch together at the Westmoore Family Restaurant in Seagrove, NC. The cost of the trip is about $8/person, plus whatever you spend for your lunch and anything you decide to buy.

The date of this year's trip will be announced in October in the Church newsletter.
