Ohio Chapter Bus Trip to the Legislative Summit
LEGISLATIVE SUMMIT BUS TRIP UPDATE Ted Gedeon 2/18/2023
In my article in the latest edition of POSTSCRIPTS, I did not have the Old Dublin Post Office as the definite location where we would be leaving the Columbus area. Well , I have received permission to use the facilities there, so we will be leaving from the Old Dublin Post Office on March 18th. If you are planning to ride the bus, please arrive there by 8:30 am. We hope to depart before 9:00 am. There is plenty of space available in the Post Office Employee parking lot to park your car. Along the way we will stop at the Ohio Valley Mall to pick up additional passengers. Lunch will be in Breezewood PA, and we should arrive in Arlington (Crystal City) VA around 5 pm.
As for the ride to VA, there will be plenty of space on the bus to bring along a cooler and snacks. Please feel free to bring some munchies to share!
