The VCTC April meeting will be held at Tuckahoe Plantation, the boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson. It is considered by architectural historians to be among the finest early 18th century plantation homes in America. The house is exquisitely furnished in period antiques and the gardens will be full of blossoms.
The meeting and lunch will begin at 12:00 p.m. in the old stable building. This building is to the right as you approach the house. Please plan to arrive around 11:30. Half of our group will take a tour of the house and gardens before lunch while the other half will eat first before the tour. There will be a charge of $17.50 per person for the use of the facilities and the house tour.
The Hillmans and Schmoyers will provide the main dishes and beverages. We ask that members contribute either a side dish or dessert to the meal. Please RSVP by April 14 to Nancy Schmoyer at email@example.com or (434) 979-6415 with the specific dish you would like to contribute.
