    OPTIONAL Afternoon Tours for Flying Physicians, Right Front Seaters, family members, friends and guests attending the 66th Annual Meeting. 

    Discovering and exploring the historic and diverse attractions of a vibrant city that gave voice to the new colonies, a city that has played an influential role in the shaping and destiny of the nation since it was established.

    MONDAY AFTERNOON - Board transportation after the Monday scientific session and lunch and see from the comfort of the motorcoach the historic sites throughout Richmond. It's the "overview" of a city past and present.  A knowledgeable guide leads the tour, answering questions and providing insights.

    TUESDAY AFTERNOON -- Shuttle service begins at 12:15 pm and continues until everyone is transported from the Omni Hotel to Historic St. John's Church for this exceptional private group event. 

    Lunch for the group will be available in the Parish Hall with time to visit and relax after the morning session.

    From lunch the group will move into the church for the highly acclaimed re-enactment of the Second Virginia Convention. You will be part of this convention -- hearing the professional actors bringing Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and Patrick Henry, among others, to life.  Listen to the debates and the arguments as they reached the powerful decision that changed the course of America's history!  It's truly history experienced live, up close and personally. 

    Following the re-enactment, questions and answers, the group will be led in small group by guides through the first public cemetery in Richmond -- relaying the stories of the famous and the infamous -- the citizens who lived in the area, celebrated or long-forgotten.

    WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON -- This is 'your' day to explore the activity that most appeals to you. Richmond has so much to offer that it is a question of what not to do! The planners encourage everyone to make plans.

    Consider options from Whitewater Rafting through downtown Richmond (no other American city offers this!), visiting Hollywood Cemetery on the St. James River banks, the Valentine Museum, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and Virginia History and

    Culture Museum, the Edgar Allen Poe Home, Maymont, the incredible Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, the local craft breweries, the St. James River Plantations near Charles City, the Shirley Vineyard Winery Restaurant.....the list goes on.  

    THURSDAY AFTERNOON -- The first shuttle begins at 1:15 pm with the FPA group moving between two sites:  The White House of the Confederacy and the historic Tredegar Iron Works.  They offer to everyone a personal time in the executive mansion used by Jefferson Davis and his family from 1861-65, and imagining life in the era. Informative docents lead the small groups on the tour.  

    Tredegar Iron Works is now an award-winning 30,000 square foot museum that is best seen with the experienced guides -- with two galleries for permanent and rotating exhibits.  There are generally over 500 artifacts on display.
