There is something for everyone in the Charlottesville Newcomers Club.
October Luncheon at Wintergreen Resort
Tuesday, October 18
Our first luncheon of the year is being held at the beautiful Wintergreen Resort in Nellysford, Virginia. The scenery on the drive should be lovely with the peak foliage occurring in the Blue Ridge Mountains and very close to peak at Wintergreen. Consider a drive through the Blue Ridge Parkway before or after the luncheon! Social time begins at 11:30 a.m., and lunch will be served at 12:00 noon.
The speaker for the afternoon is Brendan Wolfe, the managing editor of Encyclopedia Virginia, a project of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. He is the author of two forthcoming books that will be out in the spring. Interestingly, he is also teaching an OLLI course on “Virginia History for Newcomers”!
The deadline for reservations is October 12. Please check your October newsletter for details.
