Paris in June: Germanna trip open to all

Chambord Kalesi


Germanna Community College is offering a comprehensive June 2014 trip to Paris and the Loire Valley open to alumni and other members of the community as well as students.

“It’s a historical and cultural trip with days in Paris and then castles, and then a WWII focus, “ said Maury Brown, an English instructor at the college and one of trip’s organizers. “We will be there for the 70th anniversary of D-Day. We will be on the beaches at Normandy on June 10.

“Part of Germanna’s mission is to offer opportunities for personal enrichment, and those making the trip may discover a new love for history, art, literature, or philosophy along the way,” she said.

There will be an informational meeting about the trip to France at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept.  17 in room 318 of the Dickinson Building at Germanna’s Fredericksburg Area Campus in Spotsylvania. Attendees will learn more about the trip, and where the group will go, why these sites are important, what the cost of the trip covers, and how to sign up. The meeting will last about an hour, Brown said.

She said the tour group will include people of all ages.
