New Trip

The untiring and unceasingly active Trip Committee has, yet again, come up with a new and exciting excursion for us.

On Wednesday, August 23, the Committee will sponsor a trip to the American Museum of Natural History. The museum will be featuring an exhibition of "Mummies" which will give one a close-up look at rarely exhibited mummies from Egypt and Peru. In these two countries mummification was a way of preserving and honoring the dead for thousands of years. 

You can come face to face with ancient individuals (older than those in the Bistro) and rare artifacts and find out how scientists use modern and non-invasive technology to gather details about them and their cultures. It should be very interesting. 

Also there are short wait lists for:
John Jay Homestead, Katonah  - Wednesday August 2
Jewish Museum, NYC Thursday  August 10
