9:00 AM - 2:00 PM "Jamestown Settlement - a living history museum"
Spouses are invited to join us for an outing to the Jamestown Settlement - a recreation of Jamestown as it might have appeared between 1607-1624.
Set along the James River just a few miles from Williamsburg we will visit a recreated Powhatan Indian Village and James fort - a military outpost. Three recreated ships that brought the first permanent English colonists to Virginia are docked at the pier. Come aboard! We’ll begin with tour guide, John Sutton, sharing an overview of Jamestown - the importance and history of this area of our young country. Learn the true story of Pocahontas and Captain John Smith. We will see, touch and experience how the Colonists and Native American Indians lived.
There are also extensive gallery exhibits and a gift shop that can be visited. Lunch will follow at Le Yaca French restaurant in Williamsburg and include an etiquette program where we learn when to use all those many spoons and forks.
Retirees will depart for lunch with John Sutton.
