Trip to Colonial Virginia would be perfect giftPublished 9:46am Tuesday, December 18, 2012
If you are one of those last-minute gift-seekers who like to give something unforgettable, but don’t like to shop, Ironton In Bloom, Inc., may have the perfect gift idea for you.
The nonprofit group has put together a long-weekend fundraising trip to Williamsburg, Monticello (Thomas Jefferson’s home), and several other Virginia landmarks which include tours of two James River plantations, the “Berkeley” and “Westover” mansions.
Emphasis will be placed on the exceptional grounds and gardens of these historical landmarks, including admission to the Williamsburg Botanical Garden and the extensive gardens at Thomas Jefferson’s home.
The fee of $400 per person (two people to a room) will include two night’s lodging at Comfort Inn & Suites, lunch at a historic Colonial Williamsburg Tavern, and dinner at Virginia’s historic landmark, Michie Tavern, which is one half mile below Jefferson’s Monticello.
Guests will travel on a deluxe tour bus and have the services of a tour escort.
The promise to do something exciting with a loved one, being able to anticipate a trip that will take place when spring will be in full bloom, will be an exceptional gift that will certainly brighten up the long gray days of winter. Name changes are allowed so that traveling partners can be changed at the last minute if necessary.
All proceeds will go toward beatifying the city of Ironton, so you will also be giving to create beauty and pride in our town.
A nonrefundable deposit of $50 is required for a reservation. Final payment will be due by Feb. 1.
