Trip to Louisiana State Capitol and Museum – Saturday, August 28

Church of the Nations will host a field trip to the Louisiana State Museum and the State Capitol this Saturday, August 28. People who live on or near the LSU campus can catch a ride starting at Edward Gay apartments at 9:30 a.m. The bus will also stop at Tiger Towers then Nicholson bus stop then Tigerland. Those who want to drive themselves can meet us at the church parking lot – we will leave the church parking lot by 10:00 a.m.

We first will visit the Louisiana State Museum which has many interesting exhibits about the state of Louisiana – its history, culture, and traditions. We will have a short picnic lunch (sandwiches, chips, drinks) then visit the State Capitol. Children may come but parents must watch them at all times.

Louisiana State Capitol

*This trip is mainly for “new” internationals (those who have recently arrived in Baton Rouge) and/or internationals who have not yet visited these places*. But people who are interested in participating must reserve a place by Friday morning. (The church bus can only carry so many people and we need to know how much food to bring.) To reserve a place on the trip please contact Rick Wright at rwright AT ubc-br DOT org or call his office at 766-9474 ext 222.

We should have everyone back home around 2:00-2:30 p.m.

You can learn more about the Louisiana State Museum at this website and more about the State Capitol at this website.
