Love art? Antiques? Shopping? Why not combine all three passions by joining our Antiques and Museum-goers group. Since the 1970s, hordes of AWC women have relished going on frequent trips to exhibits, historic homes, and antique shops. We usually sponsor 7-8 excursions each year, even continuing in the summer months. And we never forget lunch! From time to time we arrange a bus tour and invite the entire club. There is an annual fee of $5.00. Check out our schedule below…maybe you would like to join us. We usually meet in the Fire House parking lot across the street from the Clubhouse and carpool. Costs listed are for the museum only. Your lunch is on you.
