Deacons to DC (and a few spots in between) – Part II

Last week we let parents and families know of an opportunity for their students to take a charter bus home for Thanksgiving break for those who live in the Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Washington DC areas.  IMPORTANT NOTE: the pickup site of the Fredericksburg stop has been changed; please see updated information below.

There is now online registration to reserve your student’s place.  If you have interest in doing this, we encourage you to register early.  Please see the full information below.  For additional information or questions, please email  Janna Herman at

Happy Friday, Deac families!
