Kirkland leads students, adults on Washington tour
A group of Plaquemine residents recently returned from a four-day tour of Washington. D.C.
The group of students and adults were led by tour coordinator Donna Kirkland. This was Kirkland's 30th year leading this trip.
The tour included visits to the American History Smithsonian, the Air and Space Smithsonian, and Ford's Theater. The Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Wall, the World War II Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, and the FDR and MLK memorials were among the many sights visited.
Picture stops were made at the White House and Capitol. One of the highlights of the tour was participating in a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
Kirkland already is planning her 31st trip to Washington. She has three additional trips planned. A fall foliage tour is planned for October. Trips to Sicily and Thailand are planned in 2022.
