Richmond, on Saturday, April 13, 2013.
The plan is to meet at Lewis
Ginter Gardens at 9am for a self-guided tour of the gardens. Admission is $11
per person, $10 for seniors. Lewis Ginter is a reciprocating member garden, so
if you are a member of the Norfolk Botanical Gardens, that membership will get
you into Lewis Ginter. You are responsible for your own entry fee. The Gardens
are located in Henrico, VA, approximately 100 miles from Norfolk.
will be at The Tea House on the grounds. Menu consists of soup, salad and
sandwiches, with moderate prices.
Tour then continues at the Maymont
Estate, located approximately 8 miles from Lewis Ginter Gardens. Admission is
free, but donations are requested for indoor exhibits. There is no photography
allowed inside the buildings.
Each tour should take approximately 3
hours, which would make a full day. Lewis Ginter does not require advance
reservations, although we need to let The Tea House know how many to expect for
lunch. Maymont does need to know that a group will be coming and would like an
idea of how many are expected.
If you are interested, please let me know
as soon as possible so we can make the arrangements. I need confirmation by
April 6th at the latest. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or
call me at 420-1477 and leave a message.
If you have transportation to
share, or if you need a ride, let me know that also. Please put “Photo Club
Trip” in the subject line of the email.
Directions will be emailed to
anyone who needs that information.
