Tuesday, August 20, 8 am

A caravan of Simon JCC “Day Trippers” is headed to Petersburg and Richmond.

Open to adults of any age, the first stop of the day will be at the Virginia Diner for breakfast and shopping. The bus will then travel to Old Towne Petersburg, an area steeped in history, culture, arts, boutiques and antiques.

In the afternoon, shoppers will travel to the Short Pump Mall in Richmond, where it will be time to “shop ‘til you drop,” have ice cream, meander and mingle. Shoppers will return to the JCC around 7 pm, after a trip of bus fun and prizes.

“A summer shopping trip from the JCC gives adults of all ages an opportunity to travel together as a community,” says Scott Katz, JCC Center director. “We are excited about expanding this program so that this will be the first of many upcoming trips from the Simon Family JCC.”

The cost of $35 per person, includes the bus, driver tip and bus snacks. Payment may be made at the JCC front desk or by calling with a credit card to 321-2338. A payment secures a reservation. RSVP by August 13. Contact Sherry Lieberman for more information, 321-2309 or email
