A Day in our Nation’s Capitol

     On Saturday, February 22, the Rainbow Girls of Virginia all gathered at the Arlington Cemetery to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It was a long drive from Hampton to Arlington, but it was definitely worth it. Our Grand Worthy Advisor, Katie,  had the opportunity to lay a red, white, and blue wreath at the Tomb. On the wreath was a ribbon that said “The Order of The Rainbow for Girls”.  It was really amazing to see the unique ways we are getting our name out their and the good we are doing while advertising our organization. While we were there, we also got to see the ceremony of the changing of the guards. It was also very interesting to see and was just an amazing experience overall.
     After the cemetery, we took the Metro to the Smithsonian. That was an adventure in itself; getting tickets, staying together, and getting off at the right stop was fun, but we all got there safe.
     When we got to the Museum of American History, we split into groups to do a scavenger hunt. We had to find information about the different topics that were in the museum. In the museum there was a section on how technology has evolved, one on each of the world wars, and more. It was great to learn about our Country and some of the people who protect it.
     By the end of the day, everyone was tired, happy, and ready to go home. It was an amazing opportunity to be able to see the things we did that weekend and get close as a State. We cannot wait for the next opportunity to do so!
In Rainbow Love & Service,
Grand Service
