This year we will visit the Museum of the American GI. The Museum of the American G.I. is a living history museum dedicated to preserving the equipment, uniforms and memories of all American Servicemen and women.

The Museum of the American G.I. is home to one of the finest collections in the US of restored, running WWI, WWII and later era military vehicles including a WWI FT-17 tank,  WWII Sherman tanks, M18 Hellcat, River Patrol Boat, and various other vehicles. What really makes this museum unique is its ability to exhibit the vehicles and weapons in action. We restore and maintain the equipment so the public can hear and see the equipment move under its own power. All of the vehicles and equipment on display are fully restored and functional.

Also on display is an extensive collection of  historic WWI and WII propaganda posters as well as uniforms from WWI to Vietnam War worn by American Servicemen and women.

Following the museum tour we will take a short ride to The Stella Hotel. After getting checked in and settled in your room head back down stairs for cocktails followed by dinner in the Celeste A ball room.

There are two plated dinner choices:

  1. Chicken Pasta, cauliflower whipped potatoes, garlic parmesan roasted asparagus. Warm Dinner Rolls. Petite Gem Salad, crisp seasonal vegetables, toasted sunflower seeds, lemon vinaigrette. Milk Chocolate Cake, chocolate buttercream, pecan coconut strudel.
  2. Pasta for Vegetarians

Water, Coffee and Ice Tea are available. All other beverages will be purchased individually.

After dinner please join us for live music in the Herschel Lounge or enjoy beverages on the lawn or perhaps a walk around the Town Center Lake, weather permitting.

On Sunday morning we will meet for breakfast at the hotel’s Campfire Restaurant. Finally we will check out of the hotel.

So, here are the details.
