This is an amazing, wonderful and generous group. We're in for some $$, please keep the Forums posted on that bank account. Paula, have you thought about contacting the hospice units in the Williamsburg and DC area to see if they can provide any assistance with wheelchairs and the like? May require a referral from Brenda's physician.

Bank Account - just snail mail a check

Brenda Newport - contributions for her DC & Williamsburg trip may be made to the following account. I did not tell her that anyone had even suggested getting together enough for her husband to take off work and travel with her. If anything close to that much can be raised, I'll fill in the rest and it will be a wonderful surprise. If we're too short, it will at least let her kids have great memories of this trip. Brenda is not active on the internet so hopefully she'll be pretty surprised.

I actually got Brenda to set up the account at her local branch so there wouldn't be any logistical issues of her proving the money should go to her - she thinks we're just getting her some gas money, and a bit to pay admissions to museums, etc.
"Brenda's Bucket List"
Care of Ann Wyant, branch manager
Charter One
2495 Easton St. NE OHB665
Canton, OH 44721

If you wish to call the bank, the number is (330) 492-7166
I didn't ask, but they might take charge cards or wire transfers.
Bless you all for your interest and caring. I'm so grateful to you all.

You ROCK,

Paula

I just called the bank. More than one check already received. Don't have the balance so far - the manager is out - but we may have a very nice surprise for Brenda.

Every bit helps. Believe me she'll squeeze the most value for her kids out of your contributions. Now going to add mine to the pot.

Bless us all every one! Paula

I dropped a check in the mail today. My brother and his family visited us in June. We did the "grand tour" of Baltimore-DC-Eastern Shore for them. As noted on this thread, hitting the museums and all of the monuments on the Mall can involve a tremendous amount of walking. Late in the afternoon, the people taking tours on Segways were looking pretty smart. The heat in DC can be brutal as well. My suggestions is to list the attractions in order of priority and go into the day knowing you won't see everything.

In DC, my brother and his family enjoyed the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, the Holocaust Museum and the monuments. In Baltimore, they liked going to an Orioles game, the Inner Harber, Fort McHenry and the National Aquarium. They also had fun visiting Gettysburg and Ocean City.

I think every American citizen should "see" DC at least once, simply to gain an appreciation for the place and its history. When we entertain guests from out of town, going to DC is my least favorite duty as host... simply due to the traffic, crowds, etc. I've also found that it is always surprising what people find most impressive. My brother was amazed by the cyclorama at Gettysburg (which is admittedly pretty neat), but who would have thought? They were also impressed by the best pizza in Baltimore.

It sounds like Brenda and friends have the DC situation under control. If there is anything outside of DC she wants to add to the bucket list, let us know. We'll do what we can to help.

C'mon... isn't there even a passing interest in B'more, the City, home of the "Hon" and a museum as good as anything you'll find in DC? Frank is going to be really disappointed.

OK... this is a shameless bump as well.

By the way, I think it would a true confluence of greatness for vintage Airstreamers to roll on the Hon festival.

Hi all,
Paula's sister again.
I'm back from the 16th century and all worn out but so pleased with all the advice and help from you Alumin-Angels.

Brenda actually has a wheelchair to bring along. Her "still at home" kids are 17, 14, 11 and 9 so she has plenty of help getting around. She's able to do some walking, but knows to conserve her strength so they can all enjoy the trip.

The Viet Nam Memorial is on her list of what they want to see.

My husband's brother Ernest Kerr and our cousin Frank Piccelli are both "on the wall". It's holy ground. Thanks for recommending it.

Thank you all again. I'll post more info when the rest of the trip is all planned.

Karen
