Appropriate movies and snacks will be provided on the bus and we will stop at Potomac Mills for lunch/shopping. The cost of this trip is $20 for adults, children will be free; however, we are asking for donations to defray the cost for our youth. Please sign-up today if you or your child is interested in attending. There are only 40 seats, so this is a first come first serve event.
