Westminster’s Roadsters programs are planned with senior adults in mind. Westminster members and friends have the opportunity to take day trips in the DC area or attend special events in the church. Destinations may include historic homes, gardens, area galleries, plays, concerts, and parks. Trained drivers provide transportation from the church using a 15-passenger bus. For more information, contact Patty Chamberlain, Director.
Please register for events with Patty Chamberlain.
Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and the Samuel C Johnson IMAX Theater
Monday, September 18
Back by popular demand, we will make one last trip to the IMAX theater to see Amazon Adventure 3D. The theater is closing at the end of September to make room for a restaurant expansion. There will be time to walk around and explore the museum and we will have lunch there as well. Cost: $10-15 plus lunch (ticket cost is based on whether we can get a group discount, so RSVP as soon as possible). Meet in the church parking lot at 9:30 AM.
Lunch and Learn: One Year Later, Where Are We Now
Monday, October 16
Our very popular three panelists (Matt Viser, Deputy Washington Bureau Chief for the Boston Globe, John McArdle, Producer and Host at C-Span, and Dan Judy, Vice President at North Star Research) from last year are returning to do a panel discussion on where we are now as a country one year after the election. They will present their insights, take questions and try to assess where we are now. Cost: $10 for lunch. 12:00 PM in the Haverkamp Room.
Little Theatre of Alexandria
Attend the dress rehearsal of LTA’s productions! Shows begin at 8:00 PM; arrive between 7:30 and 7:45 to pick up your ticket from one of our members. No bus service available.
Thursday, September 7: Driving Miss Daisy
It’s 1948 in the Deep South just prior to the civil rights movement. The wealthy, strong-willed, Daisy Wertham, is a Jewish woman living in a WASP-dominated community. Hoke, a dignified, unemployed black man is hired as her chauffeur. This Pulitzer Prize-winning play spans their complex 25-year relationship to show that friendships are found in even the most unlikely circumstances.
Thursday, October 19: Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, this story follows middle-aged siblings, Vanya and Sonia, who live together in present day Bucks County, Pennsylvania in the only home they have ever known. Without warning, their sister, Masha, who happens to be a movie star, stops in for a visit with her much younger boyfriend, Spike. Hilarity ensues as this kooky clan works out their differences about potentially selling the family home.
