From Laurie McLeish: On Friday, September 20, 2019 we will start our weekend drive to PA. We’ll stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Exton, PA for two nights (Sept. 20 and 21-we’ll check out on Sunday morning Sept. 22nd and drive home). Ten rooms (some of each-king and two queen bed rooms) are being held for $115.00 per night, this does not include 11% tax which will be added to your bill. Breakfast is included. You can book your room by calling the hotel directly at 610-524-9000, ext. 0. Or book online at www.hieexton.com Let the booking representative know you are with the Model A Club. Rooms are being held until August 20, 2019. After this date the unbooked rooms will be released.

The Behind the Scenes Tour: Under the Fountains is offered on Friday and Sunday afternoons. We are planning on arriving at Longwood in time for the 3:15 tour on Friday, Sept. 20th. This tour takes about an hour and 15 minutes. Participants should be prepared to climb and descend a couple of flights of stairs. You will need a ticket to Longwood Gardens about $20.00 (depending on Military or Senior discount that might apply to you) and an additional Behind the Scenes tour ticket which is $20.00.

Tickets for the Behind the Scenes Tour: Under the Fountains are not available yet. We’ll keep checking and let you know when they are available and when you can purchase them. We’ve been told that the tours should be running throughout the month of September, but last we checked the tour was not yet on the schedule.
